Daughter of the Sea is a Kul Tiran song about the daughter of Lord Admiral Daelin Proudmoore, Jaina, and her role in her father's demise at Theramore following the Third War.[1][2]

Lyrics

"Beware, beware the Daughter of the Sea."
"Beware," I heard him cry.
His words carried upon the ocean breeze,
As he sank beneath the tide.

Those blood-soaked shores of Kalimdor,
Where sailors fought and died.
The Admiral fell at Theramore,
because she left his side.

Why this? Why this, oh Daughter of the Sea?
Why this? Did you forget your seaside days?
Always the pride of our nation's eyes,
How could she go astray?

When she did flee across the ocean deep,
the Admiral followed west.
What else but sail to save a daughter's life,
and pray she still drew breath?

But there he found upon those distant shores,
Enemies 'pon the rise!
But when he faced those savage foes
His daughter stood aside.

And buried deep beneath the waves,
Betrayed by family.
To his nation, with his last breath, cried,
"Beware the Daughter of the Sea."

In Warbringers, Jaina adds a final stanza

I heard, I heard, across a moonlit sea,
The old voice warning me,
"Beware, beware the Daughter of the Sea",
"Beware, beware..."
...of me.

Daelin and a young Jaina in A [110 - 120] The Nation of Kul Tiras

Ahoy, ahoy, sweet Daughter of the Seas.
Ahoy this child be mine.
The Admiral's world, his whole entire world, for as long as stars do shine.
