Lyrics:
Verse 1
On an island far away,
So the old world legends say,
Sat wicked sirens all day long,
singing their sweet deceitful song.

Mariners came sailing near,
Heard that song so soft and clear,
Answered the call that lured them all,
And upon the reef came straight to grief.

Refrain:

Come to us, we've waited so long for you,
Ev'ry day we'll make a new song for you,
Come, come, to us we love you so.
Leave behind the world and its fretting
And we will give you rest and forgetting,
So sang the sirens ages and ages ago.

Verse 2
Now long years have passed away,
Sirens are a myth, they say,
But you still find them none the less,
Singing today in modern dress.

Just the same they set their snare,
Sweetly smiling false and fair,
Turn a deaf ear when you are near,
Or upon the reef you'll come to grief.

Refrain:

Come to us, we've waited so long for you,
We'll make life one beautiful song for you,
Come, come, to us we love you so.
That's the song the sirens will sing you,
And if you hark, to shipwreck they'll bring you,
Just as they used to ages and ages ago.
