Lorelei Lee

Lorelei Lee


Back breaking madness she sails upon thy

And the ocean she treads reaches far in the sky

The old boson shouts as the bow breaks the breast

“thank god we’re delivered, Calypso does rest”

 

And down we go

We’re sucked near dry to death

And in our daze we’ve near been saved from the ghosts that haunt our necks

And it’s high boys high

We’ll sail across the sky

The poison thaws our inside laws and leaves our loves to cry

Now we know

 

The Lorelei Lee oh, the terror of the sea

So we were told and then aboard our eyes did finally see

She’s a fine looking ship on the outside is gold

But down in the brig oh, she’ll plunder you cold

 

And down we go

We’re sucked near dry to death

And in our daze we’ve near been saved from the ghosts that haunt our necks

And it’s high boys high

We’ll sail across the sky

The poison thaws our inside laws and leaves our loves to cry

Now we know

 

Oh, my dear boys

I told you before

The Lorelei Lee feeds off the man-o-war

I call in the night to the gods of the sea

Calypso deliver my heart’s melody

 

And down we go

We’re sucked near dry to death

And in our daze we’ve near been saved from the ghosts that haunt our necks

And it’s high boys high

We’ll sail across the sky

The poison thaws our inside laws and leaves our loves to cry

Now we know
