lyrics

Lyrics:

BRISPORT:
It opens on the water, and an old ship broken up by the storm. A survivor, like a pirate, grizzled and half dead of thirst, drifting closer and closer toward the sound of the siren song — You remember the sirens? Odysseus tying himself to the mainmast, to hear a song so beautiful sailors become possessed hearing it… become obsessed, infatuated… can’t help but steer their boats onto the rocks simply to find the source of this music. And he sees them. Our Errol Flynn lost at sea. He sees these three beautiful women looking down upon him from the railing of the The New Seaborn Adventure Cruise! — The sirens were daughters of the river god Achelous. They called him the prince of the silver swirling, and his name, in a language more ancient than Greek itself, begged it’s listeners to “wash their cares away”. Wash your cares away. I don’t know. Sounds like a siren song to me.

THE BOSS:
Wash your cares away…

MR. BRISPORT:
Whet your appetite… Taste the thrill… Escape to a land beyond land. Join us on the Great Pirate Adventure. Four star seafood dining, night club for adult entertainment, casino, fitness center, tropical themed indoor spa, rock wall, pool on deck --

THAT GUY:
With a water slide in the shape of a sea monster.

BRISPORT:
With a water-slide in the shape of a sea-monster! Indulge yourself. Indulge your family. Give in to temptation. Join the adventure.

GALLEY SLAVES:
Wash your cares away…
Let me wash your cares away…
Oh, sweetly…
Oh, softly…
