The refrain goes:

"Take care, please take care
As you travel on your journey
And take care and beware
Of the open sea."

Anyone have the rest of the lyrics?

I can help you with the track, if you want. I'll mail it to you. It's from the album In The Round. About 4meg.

Cheers

Me neither, when I listened to it. That's why I offered sending the track.

I'll see what we can work out.

Thanks. I don't know why it's grabbed me so, but it has. Most annoying! ;)

I've googled long and fruitlessly for the same lyrics, and at last just decided to write down what I could understand.

In the hope that this will help someone else to hear the rest, here is my partial version ("-" stands for roughly one garbled syllable):



Just like a toy boat, that's -----
Gently bobbing up and down
The autumn leaves ---- on the water
In rainbow eddies spinning 'round

------ that's borne upon the wind
You never worry while you're bound(?)
----- like a feather on the air
But no complaints(?) and not a sound.

But take care!
Please take care
As you travel
On your journey
Take care!
And beware
Of the open sea...

In perfect innocence ----- flower
Never fading ---
You never look ahead, don't see the waterfall
--------

But take care!
Please take care
As you travel
On your journey
Take care!
And beware
Of the open sea...

[lengthy guitar interlude]

Like Peter Pan you never think about tomorrow
--------
No time to stop and think, no time ----
----- fly away(?)

Take care!
Please take care
As you travel
On your journey
Take care!
And beware
Of the open sea...

Take care!
Please take care
As you travel
On your way
Take care!
And beware
Of the open sea...

Okay. I have everything but the last 3rd from last line of the last verse for sure. He's at the bottom of his register there and the first two words and the last word aren't clear, but the logic of what I hear works.

Bert Jansch/Pentangle: THE OPEN SEA (from In The Round, 1986)

Just like a toy boat, that's floating down the river
Gently bobbing up and down
The autumn leaves brightly settled on the water
In rainbow eddies spinning 'round

A wild and lonely seed that's borne upon the wind
You never worry where you're bound
You ride the rapids like a feather on the air
With no complaints and not a sound.

Chorus:
But take care; please take care!
As you travel on your journey.
Take care, but beware
Of the open sea.

In perfect innocence your world seems like a flower
Never fading; always bright
You never look ahead, don't see the waterfall
You never see the warning light.

Chorus/Break

Like Peter Pan you never think about tomorrow.
Tomorrow is another day
No time to stop and think, no time to think of sorrow
You turn your back and fly away

Chorus:
But take care; please take care!
As you travel on your journey.
Take care, but beware
Of the open sea.

Take care; please take care!
As you travel on your way.
Take care, but beware
Of the open sea.

Just like a toy boat, that's floating down the river
Gently bobbing up and down
The autumn leaves brightly settled on the water
In rainbow eddies spinning 'round

A wild and lonely seed that's borne upon the wind
You never worry while you're bound
You ride the rapids like a feather on the air
With no complaints and not a sound.

CHORUS: But here, please take care
As you travel on your journey.
Take care, but beware
Of the open sea.

In perfect innocence your world seems like a flower
Never fading; always bright
You never look ahead, don't see the waterfall
You never seen the warning lights.

CHORUS: But take care ah please take care
As you travel on your journey.
Take care, but beware
Of the open sea.

Instrumental break

Like Peter Pan, he'll never think about tomorrow.
Tomorrow is another day
No time to stop and think, no time to think of sorrow
You turn your back to fly away

CHORUS: Take care; please take care!
As you travel on your journey.
Take care, ah beware
Of the open sea.

Take care; please take care!
As you travel on your way.
Take care, and be beware
Of the open sea.

Instrumental end
