The Sailor who has travelled the world was undoubtedly a more interesting and attractive proposition for the young maids than the boy next door. Love 'em and leave 'em songs are very common but most of them have some sort of moral last verse. The sailors in any case didn't have it all their own way, some of the girls had a rather nasty way of hitting back as in 'The Sailor Cut Down In His Prime'.
