Mermaid Mammaries

when ancient mariners tell tales of things they see at sea

mermaids come up a lot, half woman, half fish, and pretty

without so much as blushing they praise their mammaries

the old sea dogs smile with their imaginative memories

there’s stories of mermaids told throughout history

their true intentions for sailors always a mystery

mermaids, salty dogs claim, sometimes go ashore

falling in love with men for evermore

The Sea Dogs Chant

An adventurer am I

sailing the seven seas

until I die

chanting

give me wind and a blue sky!

and seas so calm

the days fly by

I am a sea dog

keeping the ship’s log

plotting places to go

it’s a good life you know

chanting

Give me wind and a blue sky

and seas so calm

the days fly by

On the bridge I stand proud

free and loud

a sea dog avowed

chanting

Give me wind and blue sky

and seas so calm

the days fly by
