Schifferman's End (Captains End)

„The captain is old, shabby and romantic and has only one leg.

He loves the mermaid. If he only could swim with her elegantly underwater, he thinks he would perhaps reach her.

So off with the other leg..“


...and the mermaid sings:

  • The captain is not a good swimmer, because he has only one leg,
  • For my heart he's surely no winner, he swims like a rusty old peg.
  • Poor old captain, go looking for somebody eeeeelse,
  • poor old captain, you're much too dry for me!
