The Island - Lyrics Home



Please come out
to the salty sea.
I will wait in the harbor.
Oh how joyful
that day will be.
Please come down
to the sea.
Come out from the island.

Bring your fox fur
and sable skin;
Bring those shell chains
and arrows.
Bring that sweet root
and venison.
Bring them down
to the sea.
Come out from the island.

I'll bring sail cloth
and golden ale;
silver pots for the fire.
Crimson shirts
for the winter trails.
Please come down
to the sea.
Come out from the island.

I hear cannon thunder!
Angry red men scream!
Oh please my friends,
don't let it end this way.

Please come out
to the salty sea.
I will wait in the harbor.
Oh how joyful
that day will be.
Please come down
to the sea.
Come out from the island.
