Waiting at the water's edge
Watching all the ships
As they are heading for the harbor wall
I was just a boy, I was just a boy
Dreaming of the wide world
Dreaming of the wide world

Watching as they disappear
Reading out the names
Of all the places I have never been
Looking out to sea, staring out to sea
Dreaming of a wide world
Dreaming of the wide world, uu

I wish I was sailing away, sailing away
