The Sailor, Maiden, and Siren

She lured you in just as sirens drag sailors into the sea 

 

Then you, you fell into her trap, lovesick with glowing eyes, a feathery smile, and trembling knees 

 

you felt as though she was your world

 

As if there were no other girl 

 

But she, she found another victim to seize 

 

And you, you just lay there, with your empty eyes, somber smile, and trembling knees

 

Filled with anger, you,you stomped along 

 

Wondering, how could you ever be tranced with a song 

 

Your very own weapon, how could that be? 

 

You thought that you ruled the seas

 

So along you went, with disgust and resent 

 

Regretting that distasteful siren that was sent 

 

Time went on, and you met the Siren again

 

This time, she's hoping that you'll just be friends 

 

So you nod in agreement, happy amends have met 

 

The deal is on, and your friendship is set 

 

But You have a new maiden, that you love and adore 

 

And that siren friend of yours, treats her like a sore 

 

The siren, with evil, she scowls at her grace 

 

And in the beginning, your maiden does nothing but laugh at her face 

 

Joyous and carefree you and your maiden make love 

 

Oh, but look, what's that up above ?

 

It's the siren, of course, as she screeches her tune

 

Her filthy wings and ragged nails cover the light of the moon 

 

Your maiden beloved, she shrivels in pain 

 

While you, young sailor float down the wrong lane 

 

Back to the siren that you twice adored 

 

Now you'll merely be another collection of her hoard

 

You see, young sailor, open your eyes 

 

When your maiden loves you well, take no siren for disguise
