Ulysses’ return (a song)

Move on, move on

eat not, drink not

and when you speak

let it be prayers to reason.

Go on, go on

don’t linger, don’t

you’ve been away

too long to even mention.

You’ve been away too long

to be a lotus eater

play Circe in her own game

and do your best to beat her.

.  _______ .

Be fast, stay cool

no wiseman, no fool

better be nobody

and teach Cyclops a lesson.

Be there, be alert

stay awake, fear not

the sirens’ song

can always be forgotten.

.

.  _______ .

You’ve been away too long

to sit down and be eaten

play them in their own game

and do your best to beat them.

.  _______ .

.

Let it flow, let it be

be thankful but be free

tell Nausicaa you are

only a chimney’s smoke away.

Be sure, be strong

no need to tell, only to show

you have arrived

and now you’re here to stay.

.

.  _______ .

You’ve been away too long

and now you must fight

for her who’s always been waiting

but took you years to find.

.  _______ .
