(Traditional, new words and music by Yarrow, Stookey, Travers)
Oh, me father was the keeper of the eddystone light
And he slept with a mermaid one fine night
From this union there came three
A porpoise and a porgy and the other was me
Yo ho ho, the wind blows free, oh for the life on the rolling sea
One day as I was a-trimmin' the glim
Humming a tune from the evening hymn
A voice from the starboard shouted, "Ahoy!"
And there was me mother a-sittin' on the buoy
