Shimmer and Shine

Song of the Elvermen

Shimmer and Shine

Let’s go to the silvery river

Catch the shimmer and the shine

Treasures of the Seaweed Oceans

Can’t outshine this love of mine

This love of mine

Eels of glass from seaweed tangles

Drifting slowly on the tides

Shimmering gold ‘cross the Atlantic

Can’t outshine this love of mine

When the moon is but a sliver

As the tide comes up the river

And the evening makes us shiver

They’ll be there

River Man, you Mudlark Seeker

In reflections of The May

Watch the Spring Tides

Whirl and eddy

Stirring up the restless clay

Eels of glass from seaweed tangles

Drifting slowly on the tides

Shimmering gold ‘cross the Atlantic

Can’t outshine this love of mine

There they shimmer scaly silver

Flowing sleek against the tide

Cast your nets you Anchor Piemen

Through the February Night

Eels of glass from seaweed tangles

Drifting slowly on the tides

Shimmering gold ‘cross the Atlantic

Can’t outshine this love of mine

Let’s go to the silvery river

Catch the shimmer and shine

Treasures of the Seaweed Oceans

Can't outshine this love of mine

This love of mine
