A man sailed from a harbor
Shores of home he’d left behind
To a country which was beyond the great ocean
To find
Merchant, he was a Dutch merchant
And he had just bought
Two tiny tulips in a clay round flowerpot

He had sold his house and grounds
Beside the green woods
Thus he’d got to pay for
For his dear precious goods
Halfway to an island
Manhattan, it was called
A terrible storm came upon the ship
The ship was torn

The next day the man’s love
His lady Ellen sat on a wall
Staring at the ocean
The ruthless blue, her eyes sore
The ocean doesn't return
It swallowed the ship and spat nothing
Ellen sat there a week
But she did not see there anything
