Looking for the rest of this song. Here's the chorus:

And when we sing, we sing the blue ocean
We sing the whitecaps, we sing the waves
We sing the winds, we sing the stories
We sing the breaking of the day

I can't find lyrics or a recording anywhere online, though I've found reference to the Pyrates Royale singing it on their CD "Keep Calm and Seek Revenge."

Here's my transcription, partially from that youtube video and partially from a fragment recording I have where she sings "we" instead of "I" and adds a chorus. Thanks for your help!

Said the sirens to the sailor
What makes you think we want your sorry ass washed up here on our beach?
Weíre so out of your reach
Just goes to show thereís nothing ever comes for free
You say you got our number
It was scribbled on some drunken sailorís dank and hairy palm
Well you got it all wrong
Just goes to show you canít believe everything that you read
We just come to this beach to sing

Chorus:
And when we sing, we sing the blue ocean
We sing the whitecaps, we sing the waves
We sing the winds, we sing the stories
We sing the breaking of the day

Said the sirens to the sailor
Weíve yet to meet the man the likes of which we take with open arms
The topman from the yards
No washed up salt come all this way to cop a feel
You must have heard the stories
The blind man says we girls all do it just for sport
Thatís myth and no more
Just goes to show you canít believe everything that you read
We just come to this beach to sing

Chorus

Said the sirens to the sailor
Somewhere along the line Iíd like to think that we could get some flash
Could settle some hash
Could see our names and lights our reputation clean (???)
Weíd like to think weíd settle
For just a bit of honest ink writ large inside the Times
No doggerel rhymes
Just goes to show you canít believe everything that you read
We just come to this beach to sing

When I sing the song as a solo, I use first person (I); if I'm with a bevy of ladies, I change it to we. Here are the words, first person:

The Siren's Song

Said the siren to the sailor
What makes you think I want your sorry ass washed up here on my beach?
I'm so out of your reach
Just goes to show thereís nothing ever comes for free
You say you got my number
It was scribbled on some drunken sailorís dank and hairy palm
Well you got it all wrong
Just goes to show you canít believe everything that you read
I just come to this beach to sing

Chorus:
And when I sing, I sing the blue ocean
I sing the whitecaps, I sing the waves
I sing the wind, I sing the stories
I sing the breaking of the day

Said the siren to the sailor
Iíve yet to meet the man the likes of which I'd take with open arms
No topman from the yards*
No washed up salt come all this way to cop a feel
You must have heard the stories
The blind man says we girls all do it just for sport
Thatís myth and no more
Just goes to show you canít believe everything that you read
I just come to this beach to sing

Chorus

Said the siren to the sailor
Somewhere along the line Iíd like to think that we could get some flash
Could settle some hash
Could see our names in lights, our reputation clean**
Iíd like to think weíd settle
For just a bit of honest ink writ large inside the Times
No doggerel rhymes
Just goes to show you canít believe ANYthing that you read
I just come to this beach to sing


* No top man from the yards refers to the sailors who would have worked high up in the rigging, where the yard arms are. They were called top men.

** "Could see our names in lights, our reputation clean**" This line refers to the notion that seeing our names in the lights above, say, a Broadway stage, would legitimize us in the eyes of the public

Cheers,
Janie Meneely
