lyrics

Sing for the Maidenhead, Lass of the Sea
Haven to Monsters and women made free!
It's up Captain Tommy and up with the crew
there's nothing a shipful of women won't do!

Sing for the fox girl the bold and the wild
come fearsome sea captain from stolen fox child
Tommy is crafty and Tommy is hale
Fox boys are scarce, or we'd never set sail!
Hop to when she calls with the flick of her tail!

O Sing for the Maidenhead, Lass of the Sea,
Haven to monsters and women made free!
fair wind and fair weather and a captain who's clever
we'll sail on forever and rob the world through

Sing for the Satyr fair Eshkol below
Sweet is her laughter as rum from our hold
A turn of her hoof and a wink of her eye
we've an army of selkies who follow behind!
If Selkie lads visit, that suits us just fine!

sing for the Maidenhead lass of the sea
beloved of monsters and women made free!
It's up captain Tommy and up with the crew
there's nothing a shipful of monsters won't do!

Sing for the princess sweet Magadin fair
bespotted, bestriped, with wings in her hair
You never did see such a comely young thing
though she walks out of nightmare and not out of dream
Warped by a wizard, now sailing the seas
with saints, goats, and genies and more such as these!
Come braggarts and cutthroats in stinking ship's hold,
she'll fight you alone and make off with your gold!

O Sing for the Maidenhead, Lass of the Sea,
Haven to monsters and women made free!
fair wind and fair weather and a ship that is clever
we'll sail on forever and rob the world through

Sing for the barge girl the wise and the brave
no better lass when there're griffins to save
We'll call upon Sigrid when her time has come
Take the wheel after Tommy and the story goes on!
When you sail with our Sigrid you're never alone!
So bring on the maelstrom and bring on the rum
we're sisters and shipmates whatever may come!

O Sing for the Maidenhead, Lass of the Sea,
Haven to monsters and women made free!
it's up Captain Sigrid and up with the crew
there's nothing a shipful of women won't do
Sing for the Maidenhead lass of the sea
beloved of monsters and women made free!
fair wind and fair weather and a ship that is clever
we'll sail on forever
and rob the world through!
