lyrics

Oh the Sea, It’s cruel to me.
It’s taken my only love.
She’s boarded the boat to Liverpool,
In truth, she had enough.
Well we argued fierce, we argued rough,
Much like the weather now.
Well ,they’ve not berthed, I fear the worst..
The sea must have them now.

Oh Cruel Sea!
Oh Cruel Sea!
Well you’ve taken the best of our sailors, and,
You’ve taken my love from me.

Why did we have to argue so?
Why did we have to row?
If only I had kept my head,
She’d be beside me now.
Well, I curse my drinking,
I curse my pride, I curse my jealousy,
Well it’s all I can do just to sit and wait,
Upon this lonely quay.

Oh Cruel Sea!
Oh Cruel Sea!
Well you’ve taken the best of our sailors, and,
You’ve taken my love from me.

So if you have some sense, my friends,
listen to my tale.
And don’t you fight or enter spite,
Before your love sets sail.
For to find true love or happiness,
It’s rarer than any jewel.
And while don’t you forget, though your tears sting wet,
The sea is twice as cruel.

Oh Cruel Sea!
Oh Cruel Sea!
Well you’ve taken the best of our sailors, and,
You’ve taken my love from me.
Oh Cruel Sea!
Oh Cruel Sea!
Well you’ve taken the best of our sailors, and,
You’ve taken my love from me.
