Come live with me and be my love,
We’ll lay and watch the skies above.
I’ll take you out upon the sea,
And show you what it means to me.
The wind will be calm yet lightly blowing,
The cabin’s warm with oil’s glowing.
Just think of us upon this ocean,
Sipping tea as a soothing potion.
I’ll climb up high into the rig above,
To share the starry night with you, my love.
The sails will be full with autumn’s breeze,
Our bow dipping gracefully into the glowing seas.
And as we dig into my coffers’ deep,
You shall behold the things that make women weep.
Bottles of wine from the finest vineyards,
And wool from only the most renowned spinners.
These things and more can be fully your own,
But mostly the beauty that the sea has shown.
The most graceful porpoises will be swimming by,
As the sea birds sing with their siren-like cry.
Precious few have answered our ocean’s calling,
Shouting out with eyes bright and bawling.
So take this proposal and fly like the dove,
To come with me and be my love.
