Mermaid Song (Another Version)

Lyrics

Twas a Friday morn when we set sail And we were not far from the land. When the Captain spied a mermaid fair With a comb and a brush in her hand. Oh the ocean waves may roll And the stormy winds may blow. While we poor sailors go skipping to the top (CHORUS) And the landlubbers lie down below, below, below And the landlubbers lie down below. Then up spoke the captain of our gallant ship And a well spoken man was he. I married a wife in Salem town And tonight a widow she would be. Then up spoke the cook of our gallant ship And a red hot cook was he. I care much more for my pots and pans Than I do for the bottom of the sea. Then up spoke the cabin boy of our gallant ship And a dirty rotten brat was he. I don’t have a friend in Salem town But I prefer it to the bottom of the sea. Then up spoke the figurehead of our gallant ship And a pretty figurehead was he. I’d much rather be a figurehead Than to be at the bottom of the sea. Then three times around went our gallant ship And three times around went we. Then three times around went our gallant ship And we sank to the bottom of the sea.
