Song Meaning
Verse 1
Now we've all heard the story of Helen of Troy,
Kidnapped by Paris, such a foolish boy.
But the Mycenaean King was quick to apprehend,
Calling down an oath to solemnly defend.
Verse 2
Upon the great blue sea,
A thousand ships are sailing unto thee.
And I do, I do, oh I do decree:
When all is said and done, you will surely weep.
You'll surely weep.
Verse 3
Helen was her name and a Spartan she became,
Queen to Menelaus upon which he laid his claim.
He looked her dead in the eye and tied her to his hip,
He said, "If you ever leave me, I'll launch a thousand ships."
Verse 4
Upon the great blue sea,
If you should ever run away from me.
And I do, I do, oh I do decree:
No one will have you if not but for me.
If not but for me.
Verse 5
He was destined from his birth to bring about the fall of Troy,
The young Prince Paris devised a wicked ploy.
He sailed across the ocean and stole Helen from Greece.
He said, "This will be the last day I ever know of peace."
Verse 6
Upon the great blue sea,
No matter what they say this love was meant to be.
And I do, I do, oh I do decree:
It's better to have loved and lost than never to receive.
Never to receive.
Verse 7
Now once upon a time traveling through a foreign land,
I spied a pretty girl, and she took me by the hand.
She led me to the cliffs, and I could hear the ocean roar.
She revealed to me the secrets of old forgotten lore.
She sat by my side, and she spoke to me in rhyme,
Reading from the pages deep within her mind.
And I will remember this day for the rest of my life,
Oh my sweet bride-to-be, now become my darling wife.
Verse 8
Upon the great blue sea,
T'was there I asked her to marry me.
She said, "I do, I do, I do decree:"
She said, "I will marry you upon the great blue sea."
The great blue sea.
