I Have Myself a Lovely Lass (A Sea Chanty, Finally!)

I Have Myself a Lovely Lass

Heigh, Ho! Follow your heart lad!
Heigh, Ho! What’s it to be?
Heigh, Ho! Hear her calling?
Heigh, Ho! Come sail the sea!

Oh, I have myself a lovely lass,
As true as she can be.
But, alas, her home is on the grass,
And mine is on the sea.

Heigh, Ho! Follow your heart lad!
Heigh, Ho! What’s it to be?
Heigh, Ho! Hear her calling?
Heigh, Ho! Come sail the sea!

My lass has hair as fine as gold.
Her voice a nectar be.
And she alone my heart could hold
Until I found the sea.

Heigh, Ho! Follow your heart lad!
Heigh, Ho! What’s it to be?
Heigh, Ho! Hear her calling?
Heigh, Ho! Come sail the sea!

Her eyes are bluer than the sky
And seek for only me.
But she can search her whole life long
For I’ll be on the sea.

Heigh Ho! Follow your heart lad!
Heigh Ho! What’s it to be?
Heigh Ho! Hear her calling
Heigh Ho! Come sail the sea.

Her smile is like the moon at night.
Her kiss like honey to a bee.
And day and night she held me close,
But nothing like the sea.

Heigh, Ho! Follow your heart lad!
Heigh, Ho! What’s it to be?
Heigh, Ho! Hear her calling?
Heigh, Ho! Come sail the sea.

Now, my lass she is a siren’s song.
A mighty spell casts she.
But her magic isn’t quite as strong
As I’ve found on the sea.

Heigh, Ho! Follow your heart lad!
Heigh, Ho! What’s it to be?
Heigh, Ho! Hear her calling?
Heigh, Ho! Come sail the sea.

I hear she cries my name each night,
To pledge her whole self to me.
And I do not mean to do her wrong,
But my first love is the sea.

Heigh, Ho! Follow your heart lad!
Heigh, Ho! What’s it to be?
Heigh, Ho! Hear her calling?
Heigh, Ho! Come sail the sea.

Heigh, Ho! Follow your heart lad!
Heigh, Ho! What’s it to be?
Heigh, Ho! Hear her calling?
Heigh, Ho! Come sail the sea.
