Thread Name: Lyr Req: looking for sea song (Mermaid)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: looking for sea song
Well, shiver me timbers!

None of the versions of the Mermaid I've see had that verse. I sing the more traditional version of the song which is called "The Ship in Distress" in the Oxford Book of Sea Songs and does not use the more popular melody usually associated with the "Mermaid."

Regards to all,
