A Sea-Song from the Shore

Print Share
    Hail! Ho!
    Sail! Ho!
    Ahoy! Ahoy! Ahoy!
    Who calls to me,
    So far at sea?
    Only a little boy!
    Sail! Ho!
    Hail! Ho!
    The sailor he sails the sea;
    I wish he would capture
    A little sea-horse
    And send him home to me.
    I wish, as he sails
    Through the tropical gales,
    He would catch me a sea-bird, too,
    With its silver wings
    And the song it sings,
    And its breast of down and dew!
