    I.

    There's an island hidden in the sound
    Lapping currents lay your boat to ground
    Fix your barb and bayonets
    The curve is carved there arabesque
    And sorrow fills the silence all around
    You come and see

    There's a harbor lost within the reeds
    A jetty caught in overhanging trees
    Among the bones of cormorants
    No bootmark here nor fingerprints
    The rivers roll down to a salina sea
    Come and see, come and see

    The tides will come and go
    With this below waking eye
    The willows mark the wind
    Now we know for sure amidst this fading light
    We'll not go home again
    Come and see, come and see

    In the low ends nestled in the heath
    A briar cradle rocks its babe to sleep
    Contents watched by ziggurats
    And patagon in parallax
    A foretold rumbling sounds below the deep
    Come and see, come and see

    The tides will come and go
    With this below waking eye
    The willows mark the wind
    Now we know for sure amidst this fading light
    We'll not come home again
    Come and see, come and see

    II.

    As I was a ramble
    Down by the water
    I spied in sable
    The landlords daughter

    Produced my pistol
    Then my saber
    To make no whistle
    Or thou will be murdered
    La ha, la ha

    She cursed, she shivered
    She cried for mercy
    "My gold and silver
    If thou will release me"
    La ha, la ha

    I'll take no gold, miss
    I'll take no silver
    I'll take those sweet lips
    That thou will deliver
    La ha, la ha

    III.

    I will dress your eyelids
    With dimes upon your eyes
    Lay you close to water
    Green your grave will rise

    Go to sleep now
    Little ugly
    Go to sleep now
    You little fool

    Forty winking
    In the belfry
    You'll not feel the drowning
    You'll not feel the drowning

    Forget you once had sweethearts
    They've forgotten you
    Think you not on parents
    They've forgotten too

    Go to sleep now
    Little ugly
    Go to sleep now
    You little fool

    Forty winking
    In the belfry
    You'll not feel the drowning
    You'll not feel the drowning

    Go to sleep now
    Little ugly
    Go to sleep now
    You little fool

    Forty winking
    In the belfry
    You'll not feel the drowning

    Hear you now the captain
    Heave his sorrowed cry
    The weight upon your eyelids
    Is dimes laid on your eyes
