Said the sea to the lonesome sailor
The sky electrified in a startling flash
His gaunt face grew paler and paler
Quick, quick; you must dash!
Announced the seaweed to this sailor
The sky broke in an almighty crack
His battered sails grew weaker and weaker
Hurry home dear sailor, hurry home, get back
Whispered the raindrops to this nervous sailor
The sea rose in a careless lurch
His shaking voice grew fainter and fainter
Take refuge in your cabin, for here there is no church
Spat the fish to the withered sailor
The wind grew strong in a howling gust
His startling eyes grew dimmer and dimmer
Escape these merciless waters, you must
Screeched the seagulls to this brave sailor
The ship groaned angrily at oncoming waves
His breathing grew heavier and heavier.
Over here lost soul! Over here!
Sang the sirens; to the helpless sailor
He turned to them with a face of fear
