History and sentiment behind song

This song is about mermaids, which is a word used by men as a term for woman, like “princess”. The song refers to Ogum, which is associated with Saint George the dragon-slayer, he is the god of steel and lives deep in the forest his colours vary but always include the red of blood. His symbol is the sword and other wrought iron tools. Associated with Wednesday, his food is red meat and palm wine, and his dance imitates the march of a warrior. He is the most prevalent dominant god.
