I did not intend to break any copyright, just would like to share this amazing, wonderful music and song which I deeply fell in love with since the very first time I heard it! whole lyrics: An earthly nurse sits and sings, and aye she sings by the lily wean sayin ” little ken I my bairn’s father, far less the land where he dwells in.” for he came on night to her bed, and a grumbly guest, i’m sure was he, saying ” here I am, I, thy bairn’s father, Although I be not comely.” “I am a man, upon the land, I am selkie on the sea, and when I’m far, and far frae land, my home it is in Sule Skerry.” And he had taken a purse of gold and he had placed it upon her knee saying “give to me my little young son, and take thee up thy nurse’s fee. and it shall come to pass on a summer day, when the sun shines bright on every stone, I’ll come and fetch my little young son and teach him how to swim the foam.” ” I am a man, upon the land, I am a selkie on the sea, and when I’m far from every strand my home it is in Sule Skerry.” “And ye shall marry a gunner good, and a right fine gunner I’m sure he’ll be, and the very first shot that e’er he shoots will kill both my young son and me.” ” I am a man upon the land, i am a selkie on the sea, and when I’m far, far, far from land, my home it is in Sule Skerry.”
