Awash

This song was created for Game of Bands round 129 : "Sea Shanties"

Lyrics:

Verse:
Fair isle that I knew, sun-soaked and swaddled blue
Inspired by desire to return to you
The bounty of your crystal waters mount in memory
The sights we sought in seas afar cannot compare to thee

Chorus:
Fronds plucked from mother palm
Plaintively beseech
Reach out with warmer winds
And guide us to your beach
And should our whistle fail to sail us
True into your quay
Know that fronds of mother palm
Will drift ashore another day

Verse:
How might a man resist a peach aripe
Or the genesis of bliss in the night
Sound of bottle breaking and a short yelp
(Multiple voices) NO!
All a man can beg is a swift return to bed
On a wild isle smiling, that evils fear to tread

Bridge:
Sons of the sun sing songs so sweetly
In the honor of no other mother jewel
(Sons of the sun sing songs so sweetly
In the honor of no other mother jewel)

Chorus:
Fronds of the mother palm
Plaintively beseech
Reach out with warmer winds
And wash us to your beach
And should our father fortune us with
Fishy-favored days (HA)
Know that soon the sons will be
Awash into your quay
[Exit]
