Will you sing me a song of the sea? I asked
as the wind she blew and howled.
Where goes the ship with the swinging mast
and the gallant crew, all drowned?
Not a voice came out of the raging night
not a single human sound.
Throw me a rope and make me fast
and the wind she blew and howled.
Answer – from Bee
I sang you a song of the sea, as you asked,
but the wind, she blew too loud.
I was on that ship with the swinging mast,
and fortunate not to have drowned.
I sang at the top of my voice the night,
but you couldn’t have heard, and I’ve found
that you never caught the rope that I cast
coz the wind, she howled too loud.
(thank you Bee)
