We be souldiers three,
pardona moy je vous en prie,
lately come forth from the low country
with never a penny of money.

Here good fellow I drinke to thee,
pardona moy je vous en pree,
to all good fellowes where ever they be,
with never a penny of money.

Here good fellow I'll sing you a song,
sing for the brave and sing for the strong
to all those living and those who have gone
with never a penny of money.

And he that will not pledge me this,
pardona moy je vous en pree,
payes for the shot what ever it is,
with never a penny of money.

Charge it againe boy, charge it againe,
pardona moy je vous en prie,
As long as there is any incke in thy pen
With never a penny of money.
