the sailor and his girl

my bonnie lies across the ocean

she watches me above the waves

her heart's a home where I have room

to rest my head for days

she calls me hers, I made her mine

though she is dark and I am light

she holds my torch and lets it shine

while I sail off into the night

my body's strong, her heart is too

when I leave her on the shore

we rise and fall just like the tide

for us there always will be more
