Part 1
Sail o -ver the waves,
While the breez -es are rip -pling the sea,
One fa -vor love craves,
Just a kiss would be heav -en for me,
Day dies in the west,
And the wa -ters are tremb -ling with light,
Lean clos -er and rest,
Let me kiss you, my dear one good -night.
 
Part 2
In the mur -mur -ing song of the sea,
Lies the mean -ing of love's mys -ter -y.
In the mag -i -cal kiss of the spray,
You will know what my lips dare not say.
All my heart you have caught in the snare
Of your eyes and your clus -ter -ing hair,
And I dream of love ten -der and true,
Sail -ing o -ver the waves with you.
 
Part 3
Tell me love's stor -y
At morn, or at noon,
When sun -sets glor -y
Makes way for the moon.
And when the bright stars
Shine down from a -bove,
Whis -per it gent -ly,
Your stor -y of love.
 
(Repeat Part 1)
