"The Day We Set Sail (To Go and Hunt the Whale)" from the CD Sweet Lady of Flowers is a Celtic rock tune about whale hunting. But this time, just like in Melville's Moby Dick, the whale wins. The song features a wide range of instruments, among them electric guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Let's hear it!


If you like what you hear, then why not buy a CD (or two)? You will then be able to enjoy all songs in superior quality, nicely and professionally packaged and all. Tale/Theo Niessink is an independent artist, so just like most "independent" artists he does depend on your support. Let's shop!


The day we set sail to go do what? Lyrics to this song and all other songs by Tale/Theo Niessink can be found here. If you are looking for folk lyrics, then you should also check out the searchable collection of lyrics to both traditional and contemporary (folk) songs. Check it out!
