Just outside the harbour
All the ships is asleep
Baby one cool watch me
Walks the lonely beach
And way out on the water
The ship is under sail
Baby where the star light
And the dreamer in her trill

I'll wave bye bye
I pray God speak
I wish you lovely weather
More luck than you and me
You'll only sail in circles
So there's no need to cry
Oh I see you again one day
And then I'll wave bye bye.

The sailing ship reminds me of a certain girl
Who left a certain dreamer to sail into her world
Our very friendly postcard from very far away
But they just remind me of a certain day.

When I'll wave bye bye
I pray God speak
I wish you lovely weather
More luck than you and me
We only sail in circles
So there's no need to cry
Oh I see you again one day
And then I'll wave bye bye.
Bye bye.
