lyrics

And I say to the day, why you drop down to die, with fifty five falls, and seventy skies. And I say to the say, why this Ballad of Brine, with Mayflower May, and her monocled eye.

Oh, Where she lies, gently close her eyes. Oh, where she lies, gently close her eyes. Oh damn July!

Oh, I had a friend, I remember her well, with sad little hands, and a sad sickle cell. Oh, I had a friend, her ship sailed away, t'was fifty five falls ago to this day.

Oh, where she lies, gently close her eyes. Oh, where she lies, gently close her eyes. Oh, damn July!

And I say to the day, why'd you drop down to die. With fifty five falls, and seventy skies. And I say to the day, why this ballad of brine, with Mayflower May, and her monocled eye.
