He sailed the seas to Normandy
He had the maps laid out
He had a boat and had a sail
"Jack's Girl" on his arm

But no one sees the stars so bright
No one swims alone at night
I'm missin' him like a heart attack
And Neptune won't bring him back

He watches over me the onliest
He watches over me
He watches over me the onliest
He watches over me

Deepness of the waving tide
All the sea is saying goodbye
And the moon dips aloof at four
The sea doesn't keep score

He watches over me the onliest
He watches over me
He watches over me the onliest
He watches over me

Sweetness of the salty wind
Depth of love when it just begins
A pint for me and one for you
Say a toast with all who knew
