    ‹i›My Heart's at Sea Forever

    Long ago I was a sailor.

    I sailed the ocean blue.

    I knew the bars in Singapore ..

    The coastline of Peru.

    I knew well the sting of salt spray

    The taste of Spanish wine,

    The beauty of the Orient ..

    Yes, all these things were mine.

    But I wear a different hat now,

    No tie and jacket too.

    My sailing days were long ago ..

    With that life I am through.

    But somewhere deep inside of me

    The sailor lives there still He longs to go to sea again,

    But knows he never will.

    My love, my life, is here at home,

    And I will leave here never.

    Though mind and body stay ashore,

    My heart's at sea forever.
