Seagulls, seagulls in the air,
Swirling here and gliding there,
Up so graceful in the sky
Screeching loudly “watch us fly”
We love to hear you every day,
But lordy, lordy how we pray
To keep you silent in the night.
Those ghostly sounds far out of sight,
Are you spirits from the deep?
Keeping humans from their sleep.
Maybe sailors from the past
Lost at sea but free at last.
Hopefully, you will hear our plea
To quietly and silently return to sea
