SEA OF TRANQUILITY
As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 1980
I live in the light of the bright silver moon
I'll take you off sailing from midnight 'til noon
I'll show the Sea of Tranquility
You can have any flavor you happen see.
I live in the shade of a forest of green
In the wildest of woodlands that you've ever seen
There's rabbits and quails and tender young snails
As brown as the seaweed on old rusty nails.
There's fireflies dancin' in the cool evening breeze
There's love and romancing as nice as you please
There's otters and frogs and spotted ground hogs
And wily old weasels in rotted out logs.
There's rivers of rainbow and grey mountain trout
And little dark holes where the varmints hang out
There's foxes and hares in traps and in snares
And lots of bald eagles so you'd better take care.
So if you've got the time and you'd like to pass by
Come down around midnight and give us a try
We'll show you the Sea of Tranquility
You can have any flavor you happen to see.
