He saw a mermaid beauty as a figurehead,
So to the bow of the ship her bound her.
And he sailed – hellbent – towards the setting red
In search for a storm to make them founder.
He spotted a typhoon that started whirling them in,
But then the mermaid broke free with a whip –
She sang “I cant understand or go down with a captain
Who would do this to his own ship.”
