Ev'ry day I listen to the surging tide
And I always wonder why the sea's so wide
Miles of salty water, endless skies above
Stretch out far between me and the one I love.

Chorus:
Rockin' rollin' ocean
With your briny foam
Bring my sweetheart back to me
Bring my darling home.

Ev'ry night I wander down beside the sea
Callin' to the wind to blow her back to me
Now my arms are empty, since she sailed away
Only stars to hear me when I kneel and pray.

Chorus:
Rockin' rollin' ocean
With your briny foam
Bring my sweetheart back to me
Bring my darling home.

Little drops of water, little grains of sand
Make a wide, wide ocean in a lonely land
When a new ship anchors and she don't appear
I make the ocean wider with another tear.

Chorus:
Rockin' rollin' ocean
With your briny foam
Bring my sweetheart back to me
Bring my darling home...
