Deep Blue Sea


Seeger ha scritto e interpretato molte canzoni per bambini.
Questa è una lullaby su musica tradizionale. Mi risulta che sia stata interpretata anche da Odetta (album "Movin' It On" del 1987)
Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea,
Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea
Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea,
We want peace in all the lands and o’er deep blue sea

[Men sing their parts – women humm/looloo]
Sleep my child, you are safe and sound,
Sleep my child, you are safe and sound,
Sleep my child, you are safe and sound
for we’ll have peace in all the lands and o’er deep blue sea

Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea,
Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea
Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea,
We want peace in all the lands and o’er deep blue sea

[Women sing their parts – men humm/looloo]
Still today war clouds hang so low,
Still today war clouds hang so low
Still today war clouds hang so low,
but we want peace in all the lands and o’er deep blue sea

Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea,
Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea
Deep blue sea, baby, deep blue sea,
We want peace in all the lands and o’er deep blue sea

[All]
Love of life’s gonna turn the tide,
Love of life’s gonna turn the tide
Love of life’s gonna turn the tide.
Yes we want peace in all the lands and o’er deep blue sea.
