about

This song is a love song.

lyrics

Like a sailor I left my home
For adventure on the high seas
The sailing was rough and the sea relentless
Eventually, I wanted land
and eventually

Land Ho!

I built a house with my own two hands
And filled the rooms with treasure
My blood and sweat were not enough
The house was so cold
The house was so cold

A lady's touch does so much more
Than a man's can do alone
A lady's touch makes everything alright
A lady makes a house a home

So
Like a good sailor I tried saving damsels
Whose distress I made may own
Little did I know when you fix a broken wing
That little bird flies away
That little bird flies away

My mind made up I'd just go it alone
Just me and all that treasure
So I load up my boat I head out to sea
Love sick was me
Love sick at sea

A lady's touch does so much more
Than a man's can do alone
A lady's touch makes everything alright
A lady makes a house a home

Then out of the water
A mermaid appears
Out of the water a mermaid appears
I saw her oh and she saw me
And it was love at first sight
Love at first sight

Well
We didn't waste time getting acquainted
Now we're together, never separated
Engagement was asked, the answer was yes
My house is now a home
My house is now a home
I'm home
I'm home
I'm home

A lady's touch does so much more
Than a man's can do alone
A lady's touch makes everything alright
A lady makes a house a home
