Sunny Sailor Boy
Mike Scott
On a day of days I stood and gazed
Over the western sea
Startled and struck, frightened to look
When a mermaid called to me

Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy
Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy

Like a man in a dream for an age it seemed
I stood as still as a stone
While the mermaid sang and the melody rang
Like a memory calling me home

Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy
Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy

Then the sea and the wind and the shores did spin
Though my resistance was strong
All the stars in space filled the mermaids face
She captured my will with her song

Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy
Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy

Somehow I spoke the enchantment broke
I rubbed my eyes open wide
Like a dream she was gone, what remained was a song
Born on the ebbing tide

Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy
Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy

Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy
Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, Ooh-wha Ooh-wha, my sunny sailor boy
