Rime of the Ancient Mariner — Сказание о древнем мореходе

♫♥ Hear the rime ♥♪
of the Ancient Mariner ♫♥♪ See his eyes as ♪♥♫
he stops one of three ♫♥♪ Mesmerizes one ♪♥♫
of the wedding guests ☠☠♪ Stay here and listen to ♫☠☠
the nightmares of the Sea And the music plays on,
♫♥ as the bride passes by ♥♪ Caught by his spell and
♫♥♪ the Mariner tells his tale. ♪♥♫ Driven south to the land
♫♥♪ of the snow and ice ♪♥♫ ♫♥ To a place where nobody’s been ♥♪ Through the snow fog
♫♥♪ flies on the albatross ♪♥♫ ♫♥♪ Hailed in God’s name, ♪♥♫
hoping good luck it brings. And the ship sails on,
♫♥♪ back to the North ♪♥♫ ♫♥♪ Through the fog and ice ♪♥♫
and the albatross follows on The mariner kills
♫☠♪ the bird of good omen ♪☠♫ His shipmates cry
♫☠♪ against what he’s done ♪☠♫ But when the fog clears,
♫☠♪ they justify him ♪☠♫ And make themselves
♫☠♪ a part of the crime. ♪☠♫ ♫♥♪ Sailing on and on ♪♥♫
and North across the sea ☠♪ Sailing on and on ♫☠
and North ’til all is calm. The albatross begins
♫☠♪ with its vengeance ♪☠♫ ♫☠ A terrible curse a thirst has begun ☠♪ ♫☠♪ His shipmates blame ♪☠♫
the bad luck on the Mariner ♫☠♪ About his neck, ♪☠♫
the dead bird is hung. And the curse goes on
♫☠ and on and on at sea ☠♪ ♫☠ And the thirst goes on ☠♪
and on for them and me. ♫☠ «Day after day, day after day, ☠♪
We stuck nor breath nor motion As idle as a painted ship
♫☠♪ upon a painted ocean ♪☠♫ ♫☠ Water, water everywhere ☠♪
and all the boards did shrink Water, water everywhere
♫☠♪ nor any drop to drink.» ♪☠♫ ♥♪☠ There, calls the Mariner, ☠♫♥
there comes a ship over the line But how can she sail with no wind
♫☠♪ in her sails and no tide. ♪☠♫ ☠♪ See…onward she comes ♫☠ Onward she nears,
♫☠♪ out of the sun ♪☠♫ ☠♪ See…she has no crew ♫☠ ♫☠♪ She has no life, ♪☠♫
wait but there’s two ☠☠♪ Death and she life in Death, ♫☠☠
they throw their dice for the crew ♫☠♪ She wins the Mariner ♪☠♫
and he belongs to her now ☠☠♪ Then…crew one by one ♫☠☠ ♫ They drop down dead, ♪
☠ ☠ two hundred men ☠ ☠ ☠♪☠ She…She, Life in Death. ☠♫☠ ♪ She lets him live, ♫
☠ ♥ her chosen one. ♥ ☠ «One after one by the star dogged moon,
☠☠☠ too quick for groan or sigh ☠☠☠ Each turned his face with a ghastly pang
☠☠☠ and cursed me with his eye ☠☠☠ ☠☠ Four times fifty living men ☠☠
(and I heard nor sigh nor groan), With heavy thump, a lifeless lump,
☠☠ they dropped down one by one.» ☠☠ ♪☠☠ The curse it lives on in their eyes ☠☠♫ ♫☠♪ The Mariner he wished he’d die ♪☠♫ ♪☠♫ Along with the sea creatures ♫☠♪ But they lived on,
♫♥♪ so did he. ♪♥♫ ♫♥ And by the light of the moon ♥♪ ♥♪ He prays for their beauty not doom ♫♥ ♪♥♥ With heart he blesses them ♥♥♫ ♥♥♫ God’s creatures all of them too. ♪♥♥ ☠♪ Then the spell starts to break ♫☠ ♪☠ The albatross falls from his neck ☠♫ ♫☠ Sinks down like lead into the sea ☠♪ ☠♪ Then down in falls comes the rain. ♫☠ ☠☠ Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha ☠☠ Hear the groans of the long dead seamen
☠♪ See them stir and they start to rise ♫☠ ♥♪☠ Bodies lifted by good spirits ☠♫♥ ♫☠♪ None of them speak ♪☠♫
and they’re lifeless in their eyes And revenge is still sought,
♫☠♪ penance starts again ♪☠♫ ♫☠♪ Cast into a trance ♪☠♫
and the nightmare carries on. ♫♥ Now the curse is finally lifted ♥♪
And the Mariner sights his home ♫☠ Spirits go from the long dead bodies ☠♪ Form their own light and
♥♫☠ the Mariner’s left alone ☠♪♥ And then a boat came
♪♥♫ sailing towards him ♫♥♪ ♥♪♥ It was a joy ♥♫♥
he could not believe ♪♥♫ The pilots boat, ♫♥♪
his son and the hermit ♫♥ Penance of life will fall onto Him. ♥♪ ♫☠♪ And the ship sinks ♪☠♫
like lead into the sea And the hermit shrieves
♫♥♪ the Mariner of his sins ♪♥♫ ♫♥ The Mariner’s bound to tell of his story ♥♪ ♥♪ To tell his tale wherever he goes ♫♥ To teach God’s word
♫♥♪ by his own example ♪♥♫ ♫♥♥ That we must love ♥♥♪
all things that God made. And the wedding guest’s
♪♥♫ a sad and wiser man ♫♥♪ ♫♥ And the tale goes on and on and on. ♥♪
