Shanaditti - Lyrics Home



One lone star
in the heavens tonight.
A single light above the spire.
It hangs like an omen
to the world.
A princess has died!

Above the harbor
the Cabot Tower lines
a ghostly crown against the moon.
The night casts her net
across St. John's
the sixth day of June.

Betheoate Shanaditti!
Last child of sorrow;
how sad that the fire had to die.
Betheoate Shanaditti!
Deep in tomorrow
the smoke lingers still in the sky.


Who will dance
at the side of her grave?
And who will chant the sacred song?
And is there and Englishman who'll say she did not belong?

Betheoate Shanaditti!
Last child of sorrow;
how sad that the fire had to die.
Betheoate Shanaditti!
Deep in tomorrow
the smoke lingers still in the sky.
