UNKNOWN Mermaid Rule Britannia Lyrics
MERMAID (RULE BRITANNIA)

Oh `twas in the broad Atlantic, mid the equinoctial gale
That a young fellow fell overboard among the sharks and whales
And down he went as a streak of light, so quickly down went he
Until he came to a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea

Singing Rule Britannia, Britannia rules the waves
And Britons never, never, never shall be married
To a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea

She raised herself on her beautiful tail and gave him her soft
wet hand
`I`ve long been waiting for you my dear now welcome safe to land
Go back to your messmates for the last time and tell them all from me
That you`re married to a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea

We sent a boat to look for him expecting to find his corpse
When up he came with a bang and a shout and a voice sepulchrally
hoarse
My comrades and my messmates oh do not look for me
For I`m married to a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea

In my chest you`ll find my half year`s wage likewise a lock of
hair
This locket from my neck you`ll take and bear to my young wife
dear
My carte de visite to my grandmother take, tell her not to weep
for me
For I`m married to a mermaid at the bottom of the deep blue sea

The anchor was weighed, and the sails unfurled and the ship was
sailing free
When up we went to our cap-i-tan and our tale we told to he
The captain he went to the old ship`s side and out loud bellowed
he
`Be as happy as you can, with your wife, my man,, at the bottom
of the deep blue sea`
