And it looks like the contents of a sunken pirate's chest.
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I suspect that this is a mermaid's hoard, or perhaps you're really a Silkie?
Sue - Here's the Spike Milligan version:I must go down to the sea again,to the lonely sea and the sky.I left my shoes and socks there,I wonder if they're dry?
Oh if only it was actually the contents of a treasure chest...
