I wish that I could be out on a ship today
And to follow the lure of the sea.
To float on the blue where the dolphins play
Is the thing most appealing to me.
To feel the light touch of the warm salt breeze
As I cruise on the soft soothing tide,
I yearn for the essence and soul of the seas
And the caress of ocean so wide.
The love of the ocean is deep in my heart
And is found in the souls of all men,
So I wish for the day I can once more depart
And be back on the sea once again!
