lyrics

She lures them in
with a song it begins
the ocean calms
and the wind falls silent

They hear in the fog
a music it charms the sailors
rush to the decks
and she’s calling
and she’s calling

Oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Irresistible
The captain cannot turn away
She’s enchanting
and she’s asking
for him to come alone

How he longs
for the warmth of a woman
takes him home
Oh he’s aching
and he’s breaking

Oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

He orders his men
to fill their ears with wax
“And then you must tie me
You must bind me to the mast!”

The sailors obey
The ship it starts to pull away
And she’s crying
And he’s begging
“Let me go!”

Oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

He struggles enchained
He’s calling after her
Her song its is fading

She stands on the reef
and casts herself into the sea
And she’s drowning
and she’s drowning

And he’s begging
and she’s drowning
and he’s crying
as she’s dying

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
