Tiger Lily

Tiger Lily tropical
On the Gulf of Mexico
Isla Desterrada girl
Dressed in sea whip and black pearl
Picaninny high daughter
Royalty of clear water 
Friend of shark and albacore
Guardian of man o' war 
Lighthouse of the Yucatan
Clearing paths for mortal man
Caretaker of shipwrecked souls
Amorous but somehow cold
Princess of the Scorpion Reef
Catch her but you cannot keep
Offer her your heart you can
She belongs to Peter Pan
