Thread Name: Lyr Req: 'How many ships sail in the forest?'
Subject: Birmingham Sunday and ships sail in the forest
The question also makes its way into the song "Birmingham Sunday" by Richard Farina, as this verse (slightly altered from the above version):

The men in the forest, they asked it of me
How many blackberries grew in the blue sea
And I asked them right with a tear in my eye
How many dark ships in the forest
