Mermaid Song (Another Version) Song

 

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.
