Silkie - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

An earthly nurse sits and sings

And aye she sings a lily wean -

"Little ken I my bairn's father

 

Far less the land where he dwells in "

 

For he's come one night

To her bed's foot

 

And a grumly guest I'm sure he'd be

 

Saying "Here am I thy bairn's father

 

Although I be not comely

 

"I am a man upon the land

 

I am a silkie on the sea

And when I'm far and far from land

 

My home it is the sule skerrie "

 

And he has ta'en a purse of gold

 

And he had placed it upon her knee

 

Saying "Give to me my little young son

 

And take thee up thy nurse's fee

 

"And I should come to pas on a summer's day

 

When the sun shine's bright

 

On every stane

 

I'll come and fetch my little young son

 

And teach him how to swim the faem

 

"And ye shall marry a gunner bold

 

And a right fine gunner

I'm sure he'll be

 

And the very first shot

That ever he shoots

 

Will kill both my young son and me "
