My Mother Told Me Lyrics

My mother told me
Someday I will buy
Galleys with good oars
Sail to distant shores
Stand up on the prow
Noble barque I steer
Steady course to the haven
Hew many foe-men
Hew many foe-men

My mother told me
Someday I will buy
Galleys with good oars
Sail to distant shores
Stand up on the prow
Noble barque I steer
Steady course to the haven
Hew many foe-men
Hew many foe-men

My mother told me
Someday I will buy (buy)
Galleys with good oars
Sail to distant shores
Stand up on the prow
Noblе barque I steer
(Steady) Steady coursе to the haven
Hew many foe-men
Hew many foe-men

My mother told me
Someday I will buy (buy)
Galleys with good oars
Sail to distant shores
Stand up on the prow
Noble barque I steer
(Steady) Steady course to the haven
Hew many foe-men
Hew many foe-men
