lyrics

sea fever
(John Masefield, William Topley)

Well I must go down to the seas again
To the lonely sea and sky
And all I ask is a tall ship
And a star to sail her by

Well I must go down to the seas again
For the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call
That may never be denied

And all I ask is a windy day
And the white clouds flying
And the flung spray and the blown spume
All the seagulls sadly cry

Well I must go down to the seas again
To the vagrant gypsy life
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way
Where the wind’s like a whetted knife

And the wheels kick
And the wind is strong
And you see the white sails shake
And a grey mist on the sea’s face
As the wild dawn breaks

And all I ask is a merry yarn
From a fellow rover
And a quiet sleep and a sweet dream
When the long day is over
