Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

to the sea

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

Lyrics:

In Dublin //town I //know a place where //whiskey's cheap
And //strong as horses //running
And //the very best thing a//bout this keep
Is //so are all the //women

In Amster//dam there's a //woman with //ginger hair
She soothes my aching loins
She //almost never puts on //underwear
All //for a silver //coin

God keep us safe, upon the waves
But //if the Lord does //come for me
Wrap //up my corpse in a //tarp of course
And com//mit my body to the //sea

In London //Town I've //got beneath a //paving stone
A //thousand pounds that //I did steal
But //magistrate wants it //so I roam
//Till the law's forgotten //me

In Southampton I’ve a lass with a smile like spring
Never seen such a beauty in my life
And I'll //use all my savings to //buy her a ring
And //make that lass my //wife.

God keep us safe, upon the waves
But //if the Lord does //come for me
Wrap //up my corpse in a //tarp of course
And com//mit my body to the //sea

In Merseyside there lives a woman that I don't hold
Near as much I oughtta
She's got starlight eyes and a gentle soul
She's mother to my daughter


And anywhere I've got a girl thanks to my fame
Talks posh and wears all furs
Thinks //she's the only one who //knows my name
But I can’t remember //hers.

God keep us safe, upon the waves
If //it should happ'n that I //die at sea
Pre//serve my bones and //take them home
To the //woman who loves //me.
[Exit]
