Oh! hush thee, my baby, the night is behind us, And black are the waters that sparkled so green. The moon, o’er the combers, looks downward to find us At rest in the hollows that rustle between.
Where billow meets billow, then soft be thy pillow; Ah, weary wee flipperling, curl at thy ease! The storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee, Asleep in the arms of the slow-swinging seas (x2).
It’s a beautiful song and lyric. Always play this song before going to sleep. I’m so gonna sing this song to my future kids hahaha
