There Are Plenty of Fish in the Sea

1.
A lady tossed her curls
At all who came to woo;
She laughed to scorn the vows,
From hearts though false or true,
While merily she sang;
And cared all day for naught,
There are plenty of fish in the sea
As good as ever were caught.
There are plenty of fish in the sea
As good as ever were caught.

Upon their lightning wings
The merry years did glide,
A careless life she led,
And was not yet a bride;
Still as of old she sang
Though few to win her sought.
There are plenty of fish in the sea
As good as ever were caught.
There are plenty of fish in the sea
As good as ever were caught.
At length the lady grew
Exceedingly alarmed,
For beaux had grown quite shy
Her face no longer charmed.
And now she sadly sings
The lesson time has taught,
There are plenty of fish in the sea
As good as ever were caught.
There are plenty of fish in the sea
As good as ever were caught.
