This is in no way original and I've put a link to my source. It's here to show how Centaurian were altering and developing Terran Memes. This is a Centaurian version of the Terran Sea Shanty and includes information about Terran life forms that Centaurian may need to learn.

Life on the Ocean WaveEdit

A life on the ocean wave,
A home on the rolling deep,
Where the scattered waters rave,
And the winds their revels keep.

Like an eagle [1] caged I pine,
On this dull unchanging shore,
Oh give me the flashing brine,
The spray and the tempest's roar,

A life on the ocean wave,
A home on the rolling deep,
Where the scattered waters rave,
And the winds their revels keep.

Once more on the deck I stand
Of my own swift gliding craft,
Set sail, farewell to the land,
The gale follows fair abaft.

A life on the ocean wave,
A home on the rolling deep,
Where the scattered waters rave,
And the winds their revels keep.

We shoot through the sparkling foam,
Like an ocean bird [2] set free,
Like the ocean bird, our home
We'll find far out on the sea!

A life on the ocean wave,
A home on the rolling deep,
Where the scattered waters rave,
And the winds their revels keep.

Land is no more in view,
And clouds begin to frown,
But with stout vessel and crew
We say, let the storm come down.

A life on the ocean wave,
A home on the rolling deep,
Where the scattered waters rave,
And the winds their revels keep.

The song in our hearts [3] shall be,
As the darkening waters rave,
A life, a life on the heaving sea!
A home on the bounding wave!

A life on the ocean wave,
A home on the rolling deep,
Where the scattered waters rave,
And the winds their revels keep.

Footnotes

  1. Centaurians note, eagles are a type of flying predator that lives on Earth.
  2. Ocean birds are some types of flying Terran animals that find their food in oceans.
  3. The heart is a pump and a vital organ in all Terran animals with backbones including humans. The rate that the heart pumps varies with a person's emotions, therefore traditionally the heart was seen as the seat of the emotions.
