The Eddystone Light

текст песни Peter, Paul & Mary

Oh, me father was the keeper of the eddystone light
And he slept with a mermaid one fine night
From this union there came three
A porpoise and a porgy and the other was me

Chorus:
Yo ho ho, the wind blows free, oh for the life on the rolling sea

One day as I was a-trimmin' the glim
Humming a tune from the evening hymn
A voice from the starboard shouted, ";Ahoy!";
And there was me mother a-sittin' on the buoy

Chorus

";Oh what has become of me children three?";
Me mother then she asked of me
One was exhibited as a talking fish
The other was served in a chafing dish

Chorus

Then the phosporus flashed in her seaweed hair
I looked again, but me mother wasn't there
But I heard her voice echoing back through the night:
";The devil take the keeper of the Eddystone light!";

Chorus

Oh the moral of the story you'll learn when you find
To leave God's creatures for what nature had in mind
