`Twas on the Isle Of Capri that I found her,  Beneath the shade of an old walnut tree.
Oh, I can still see the flow'rs bloomin' round her,  Where we met on the Isle Of Capri.
She was as sweet as a rose at the dawning,  But somehow fate hadn't meant her for me.
And though I sailed with the tide in the morning,  Still my heart's on the Isle Of Capri.
Summertime was nearly over,  Blue Italian sky above.
I said "Lady,  I'm a rover,  Can you spare a sweet word of love?"
She whispered softly,  "It's best not to linger",  And then as I kissed her hand I could see.
She wore a golden ring on her finger,  'Twas goodbye on the Isle Of Capri.
