Fower and Twenty Mermaids

Fower and Twenty Mermaids

     Fower and twenty mermaids,
     Wha left the port o Leith,
     Tae tempt the fine auld hermit,
     Wha dwelt upon Inchkeith.

     Nae boat, nor waft, nor crayer,
     Nor craft had they, nor oars nor sails;
     Their lily hands were oars enough,
     Their tillers were their tails.

 SC (1948), 176 (no. 332), from Fife.
