If the heart of a man is depressed with cares
I, like a ship in storms, was tossed
If love the virgin's heart invade
Man may escape from rope and gun
O cruel, cruel case!
Thus gamesters united in friendship
Tis woman that seduces all mankind
Virgins are like the fair flower
I'm like a skiff on the ocean tossed
When young at the bar (Ungrateful Macheath!)
