Like a ship on the sea, her love rose over me
Like a ship on the sea, her love rose over me
Go 'way, go 'way, let me be.

Like a weepin' willow tree, her love hangs over me
Like a weepin' willow tree, her love hangs over me
Go 'way, go 'way, let me be.

Standin' on the white cliffs of Dover
Lookin' out into space
Another channel to cross over
Another dream to chase.

The night is dark and dreary
The wind is howling down
Your heart is hanging heavy
When your sweet love ain't around.

Like a leaf on a tree, her love is shakin' me
Like a leaf on a tree, her love is shakin' me
Go 'way, go 'way, let me be
[ Hauntin' me like a ship on the sea ]
Like a leaf, like a ship on the sea.
[ Hauntin' me like a ship on the sea ]
