The full lyrics

Ane Madam (Bergen)

Ane Madam var vakker smaåtøs,
– Aa haa – Ane Madam!
Ane Madam hadd’en unge paa løs
– Aa haa – Ane Madam!

* 2 *

Kom sjømand tag nu ditt hvit seil,
kom heis nu dit bramseil ogsaa din røil.

* 3 *

Men først en tur ut i Sandvigen,
for der å hilse farvel paa pigen.

* 4 *

Til madam Felle underveis stak vi ind,
for dersteds at oppfriske litt vores sind.

* 5 *

Men madammen stengte døren med stikker og straa
at ingen sjømanner der skulle gaa.

* 6 *

Men saa sprang der op en nordvestlig vind,
saa døren sprang op og sjømannen tren ind.
