mermaid song Song

 

Lyrics

It was Friday night when we set sail,
And the ship was not far from the land. (from the land)
When the captain spied a lovely mermaid of out ship
With a comb and a brush in her hand, (in her hand),
With a comb and a brush in her hand.

(Chorus) Oh! the ocean waves may roll, may roll,
And the stormy winds may blow, may blow,
But we poor sailors go skipping to the tops
While the land-lubbers lie down below, below, below,
While the land-lubbers lie down below.

Then up spoke the captain of our gallant ship,
And a fine old man was he, (was he)
Saying, ““This fishy mermaid has warned us of our doom;
We shall sink to the bottom of the sea, (of the sea),
We shall sink to the bottom of the sea!””
(chorus)
Then up spoke the mate of our gallant ship,
And a well spoken man was he; (was he)
““I’’ve married a wife in old Salem Town,
And tonight she a widow will be,(she will be),
And tonight she a widow will be.””
(chorus)
Then up spoke the cook of our gallant ship.
And a RED HOT cook was he; (was he)
““I care much more for my kettles and my pots
Than I do for the bottom of the sea, (of the sea),
Than I do for the bottom of the sea.
(chorus)
Then up spoke the cabin boy of our gallant ship.
And a scurvy little rascal was he; (was he)
““I’’ve nary a soul in old Salem Town
Who will care what happened to me, (to me),
Who will care what happened to me.
(chorus)
(Slowly)Then three times round, went our gallant ship
Then three times round went she; (went she)
Then three times round, went our gallant ship
And she sank to the bottom of the sea (of the sea),
And she sank to the bottom of the sea.
(chorus)
