Every Wave That Comes
The old Sugarloaf song, Green Eyed Lady, was apparently about a boat, or more accurately, the bow figurehead of a boat. There'd often be a mermaid carving. Sometimes a noble warrior. Perhaps the fellow who wrote the song saw a mermaid carving with green eyes and took it from there, soothing every single wave that comes... although, that song was largely instrumental now that I think of it. I like the pun in the last line, setting sons and ... suns vs. a well known D.H.Lawrence book...
