VOICES OF THE SEA
Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander

"Oooo! Let the wind fill your sail!"
"Oooo! Good weather to you prevail!"
Thus call all the voices of the sea
To which whose spell not a sailor can be free
The ship was called The Golden Swan
When it came to port, not a man was on
And none knew where they'd gone!

They'd sailed through a pass of jagged rocks
Upon which a fair-haired maiden combed her locks
She got her tail tangled in a cord
And to help her, every sailor jumped off board!
"Sailor, sailor, help me free!"
"Your trusted lover, I will be!"
"If you just believe in me!"

They swam in a sea as warm as mother's milk
Caressed by hands as sweet and soft as silk
They gazed in eyes that sparkled through the sea
"Oh sailor, sailor, come make love to me!"
"Come gambol through the raging tide!"
"Swim forever by my side!"
"On the waves as one we'll ride!"

Their castle lay within a golden bed
Of sunken treasures from the drowned dead
"Oh sailors, all this gold is yours one day."
"If only you'll believe in what we say."
"Never question what you do."
"Your life, it will remain with you."
"If you’ll just believe we're true!"

They dined on fish and drank of bottled wine
And danced with the mermaids through the salted brine
This wonderland was too much to believe
And with that thought, the sailors found they couldn't breathe
They tried to swim up to the sky
But they found the towering waves too high
And the mermaids began to cry

"Oooo! Let the wind fill your sail!"
"Oooo! Good weather to you prevail!"
"Oooo! Let the wind fill your sail!"
