Quotes / Turtle Island

Go To

"At last we came onto that beautiful land,
We all went ashore and we walked on the sand.
We took our longbows and killed a pig or two,
We roasted them up and had hot barbecue.

And after a while we were singing this song,
We noticed the island was moving along.
We ate and we drank and we rolled in great style,
We sailed for Saint Brendan's fair isle.

Saint Brendan said "Boys, it is much to my wish,
"To ride on the back of the world's biggest fish.
"Hold on to the line that is pullin' the ship,
"We'll need it some day if this fish takes a dip."
—"St. Brendan's Isle", Irish folk song
