Dearly Beloved of Mine
Pull anchor and the mooring line
Like chapel chimes bestow the sacred rite

Oh my, dear brother of mine
Could you fathom your love
With a sounding line
Yeah, your heads above water
But your heart’s down deep in the brine

Oh my, sweet sister of mine
Your love grew green like a cinnamon vine
Yeah, he came like lattice
But admit it was
A really short climb

Dearly Beloved of Mine
Christen with a sparkling wine
And a hail-fellow-well-met reception line

Oh my bold brother of mine,
the spindrifts whistle and swells arise
you’ve bright eyes for the bow if not the bride

Oh spritely sister of mine
Aft and windward weather black as night
Your lovers’ sighs drown out the sirens chime

winds move in passion, the torrents in truth
all your starry conventions be damned
Some love only for riches,
some riches in love
Beware the intentions at hand
Keep close, heave ho,
As tangled a knot as did ever I see
Funereal sky
Run amok, run awry
As the sea moves to swallow
The dearly beloved of mine

Oh mighty brother of mine
How you held to the helm
With Sisyphean pride
The bowline snapped
And the waves crashed starboard-side

Oh frightened sister of mine
You reached for your bag
as you fell from the ratline
A deafening cry
And the maelstrom’s swift reply

Dearly Beloved, it’s fine
How you swam with the wind
And you fell with the sky
Another tale told
Just debris adrift in the tide (x3)
