The Siren's Lament

Trad. Mexican - ESL

 

(CAPO @ III)

Em Em7 G B7 (2X)     G B7     B7 C B7

{In the heart of a lonesome sea,

All alone on her own island} X2

Like a fisherman casts his net

Thus her song, casts out the siren

 

{I am the enchanted siren

Why has God created me} X2

This song that I spin each day

Drives my mind away from me

 

{What use to me is a sailor

With infinite love in his eyes} X2

When he finally reaches my island

He lies down at my feet and slowly dies

 

{In the heart of a lonesome sea,

All alone on her own island} X2

There's a woman who's lost her mind,

Have some pity for the grieving siren
