Golden brown, texture like sun
Lays me down, with my mind she runs
Throughout the night, no need to fight
Never a frown with golden brown

Every time, just like the last
On her ship tied to the mast
To distant lands, takes both my hands
Never a frown with golden brown

Golden brown, finer temptress
Through the ages, she's heading west
From far away, stays for a day
Never a frown with golden brown

Da-da, da-da, da-da, da-da

Never a frown with golden brown (never a frown with golden brown)
Never a frown with golden brown (never a frown with golden brown)
Never a frown with golden brown (never a frown with golden brown)
Never a frown with golden brown (never a frown with golden brown)
Never a frown with golden brown (never a frown with golden brown)

    My InterpretationThe analogy with the Odyssey is actually brilliant, there is another element to it.

    Odysseus, when he is enchanted by the sirens, "frowns" to his shipmates (since they cannot hear him) so that they untie him and let him go with the sirens.

    The singer here however, does not want to leave the ship. He is happy that he is tied with "her": "never a frown, golden brown"
