Subject: RE: Lyr Req: John Renbourn- Ship of Fools
You're right; Maggie Boyle's singing is hard to decipher. I got this from a sound sample:

When first I saw the ocean-o,
It sparkled like a looking-glass.
...its mighty motion-o
The tall ships lined along the quay
A breeze danced through the rigging-o.
...it chanced to catch my eye,
And I heard the sweetest singing-o.
