A Father's Instruction

lyrics

Oh my son, how you have grown
From a cask of bluebird bones
To a man, on a sailor's song
You've flown into the ocean
But when you're done with the sea
My son, come home to me

And even though you're going off to see
How bright life can be
In the Merchant Marines

Oh my son, what have you done?
You've thrown your days from an old tin cup
To a sea of kings and queens
And coins you plucked from fallen trees
But when you're done with the sea
My son, come home to me

And even though you're going off to see
How bright life can be
In the Merchant Marines

And so my son,
If ever you meet a gypsy girl
Don't give her ropes of pearls
Or combs to tame her ringlet curls
Don't let her sanguine lips unfurl
But pass her palm with a blade of silver
