THE DARK SAILOR

 

I was never one for taking my chances.

I was never one to follow my dreams.

I was never one for chasing romances.

I was well contented to drift with the stream.

That was till the day I met the dark sailor.

That was till the day when he told me his tale.

That was till the night when I lifted my anchor.

That was till the night when I hoisted my sail.

 

Refrain:

Yo-ho for the day when I met the dark sailor!

Yo-ho for the day he whistled my tune!

Yo-ho for the night when first I went sailing

With the full tide and the rise of the moon.

 

Down upon the quayside I met the dark sailor.

Boldly he strode as he whistled a tune

And, when I asked him, he said he was sailing

With the full tide and the rise of the moon.

Down upon the quayside I talked with the sailor;

Wonderful and wild were the stories he told

Of enchanted islands in faraway oceans

With silvery mountains and sands of pure gold.

 

Refrain:

Yo-ho for the day when I met the dark sailor! etc

 

I was never one for taking my chances.

I was never one to follow my dreams.

I was never one for chasing romances.

I was well contented to drift with the stream.

Till the sailor told me of the lonely maiden

Singing as she sat by a magical sea

Singing as she waited for the coming of her lover

Singing as she waited for a dreamer like me.

 

Refrain:

Yo-ho for the day when I met the dark sailor! Etc
