Wandering Sailor


Where have you been
sailor man sailor man
where have you been
wandering Sailor

I hear you've been around the world
made love to island girls
tell me tales that make me dream
wandering Sailor

I see tattoos on your arms
sailor man sailor man
tattoos from where you've been
wandering Sailor

What's it like to live in sin
get in fights from too much gin
tell me tales that make me dream
wandering Sailor

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
