In the Ogres Towers, Tall,

There is a faint and whimpering call

From the maiden in the Satin Shawl

Who is locked in the tallest tower.

 

Under the full-moon, bright,

The castle is an ominous sight

With spires piercing the night

While housing that darkened power.

 

She calls to her love, "Save Me!

Come take me away, bravely,

Release me from this slavery,

For I wither by the hour."

 

Her hero comes to answer the call,

Of that beautiful maiden in the Satin Shawl,

With Harpoon in hand, he's six feet tall,

And he's come to claim his flower.

 

On the Tower's bridge they stand their ground

And all that is heard is the ocean's sound,

Waves crashing, on the rocks they pound,

As if setting cadence for a battle, sour.

 

The Ogre charges with might and speed

But the center of its chest begins to bleed,

The Harpoon is there like a sprouting seed

And the Ogre begins to cower.

 

It falls from the bridge, some 90 feet tall

And sink like a rock to the bottom of it all.

Saved, is that maiden in the Satin Shawl

By the Whaling-man's son at the Ogre's Tower.
