Das Fischermädchen
The Fisher Girl


Pretty fishermaiden
Won’t you come to land –
We can have a lovely chat
And sit here hand in hand.

Rest your head against my heart
And don’t be too afraid;
After all you trust the sea
As you ply your daily trade.

My heart’s exactly like the sea
With storms and ebb and flow,
And many a pearl lies hidden
Deep in the depths below.
