"The Mariner's Lament"

An old mariner chanty


Aye, when I was a small babe, me
mother said to me,
You're no chiled of mine, boy,
No child of mine indeed, boy,
I wish you were my babe, boy,
But you were born of the sea, born of the sea.


And when I was a small boy, me
father said to me,
You're no sone of mine, boy,
No son of mine indeed, boy,
I wish you were my son, boy,
But you were born of the seas, born of
the sea.


And when I was a young man, me
true love said to me,
You're no love of mine, boy,
No love of mine indeed, boy,
I wish you were my love, boy,
But you're married to the sea,
married to the sea.


So with me heart in me hand,
I said good bye to the land,
Goodbye to all that I knew.
To the mother who birthed me,
And the father who sired me,
And the woman who made me a man,
With me heart in me hand, I said
goodbye to the land,
And took a life on the wide open sea,
A life on the wide open sea.


And it's been twenty long years,
Full of many long nights.
In this life I claimed on the sea,
And though I may miss the mother
who birthed me,
And the father who sired me,
And the woman who made me a man,
I'd trade none of it in, not one single
day,
To return to my life on the land,
To return to my life on the land.


For you see,
A mariner has but one single wish:
To live a long life on the sea.
And when the day comes,
That he breathes his last breath,
He be buried where he feels at home.
He be buried where he feels at home.


So let me die at sea!
Let me buried at sea!
It's all that I ask you to do.
For I gave up me life,
Me home and my wife,
For a life that would truly be mine.
A life on the sea,
On the wide open sea.


A life that would truly be mine,
A life that has truly been mine,
A life on the wide open sea.
