Here she Ecomes in her palanquin on the back of an elephant On a Fbed made of linen and sequins and Esilk All astride on her father's line with the king and his concubines And her Fnurse with her pitchers of liquors and Emilk And we'll Gall come Dpraise the inEfanta And we'll Gall come Dpraise the inEfanta Among Efive score pachyderm each canopied and passengered Sit the Fduke and the duchess's luscious young Egirls Within sight of the baronness seething spite for this live largesse On her Fside sits the baron, her barrenness Ebarbs her And we'll Gall come Dpraise the inEfanta And we'll Gall come Dpraise the inEfanta

Am

AmWe are two Mariners, our ship's sole survivors, in this belly of a Ewhale EIt's ribs our ceiling beams, it's guts our carpeting, I guess we have some time to Amkill. You may not remember me, I was a child of three, and you a lad of Eeighteen. But I remember you, and I will relate to you, how our histories interweAmave. FmAt the time you were a rake and a rastaboAmut. SFmpending all your money on the whores and hEounds. FmOh-Eoh AmYou had a charming air, all cheap and debonair, my widowed mother found so Esweet. And so she took you in, her sheets still warm with him, now filled with filth and fowl Amdisease. FmAs time wore on you proved a debt-ridden drunken Ammess. FmLeaving my mother a poor consumptive wEretch. FmOh-Eoh AmAnd then you disappeared. Your gambling arrears, the only thing you left Ebehind. And then the magistrate, reclaimed our small estate, and my poor mother lost her Ammind. FmThen one day in spring my dear, sweet mother dAmied. BFmut before she did I took her hand as she dying cEried, FmOh-Eoh, "FmFind him, bind him, tie him to a pole and break his Amfingers to splinters, drag him to a hole until he Fmwakes up, naked, clawing at the ceiling of his Egrave, Fmoh-Eoh." (Little Am fill right here) AmIt took me fifteen years to swallow all my tears, among the urchins in the Estreet. And then a priory, took pity and hired me to keep their vestry nice and nAmeat. FmBut never once in the Amemploy of theseFm holy men, did I ever once turn my mind from the thought of Erevenge. OFmh-oEh. AmOne night I overheard, the prior exchanging words with a penetant whaler from thEe sea. The Ecaptain of his ship, who matched you toe to tip, was known for a wanton Amcruelty. FmThe following day I shipped to sea with the Amprivateer. And in the whistle of the wind I could almost Ehear, Fmoh-Eoh. "FmFind him, bind him, tie him to a pole and break his fAmingers to splinters, drag him to a whole until he Fmwakes up, naked, clawing at the ceiling of his Egrave. CThere is one thing I must Gsay to you, Cas you sail across the Gsea. AAmlways your mother will watch Emover you, Fmas you avenge this wicked dEeed.

Middle section

Am E Fm E

AmAnd then one fateful night, we had you in our sights, after 20 months at Esea. Your starboard flank abeam, I was getting my muskets clean, when came this rumbling from bAmeneath. FmThe ocean shook, the sky went blAmack and the captain Fmquailed. And before us grew the angry jaws of a giant Ewhale, oh-oh, oh, Fmoh-Eoh AmDon't know how I survived, the crew all was chewed alive, I must have slipped between his Eteeth. But oh what providence, what divine intelligence, that you should survive as well as Amme. FmIt gives my heart great joy to see your eyes fill with Amfear. FmSo lean in close and I will whisper the last words you'll Ehear, Fmoh-Eoh
