With the wind there at my back
and the water straight ahead
There is no reason to feel sorrow
. . . only happiness instead

For a special world is waiting out there
where the ocean meets the sea
So much beauty, and enchantment
are just beconning for me

So, As my vessel cuts through spray
through the wind, and sea, and waves
Unless you've been there, you can't know
just how much of me that it saves

For I live to cut a brand new path
right there to  Neptune's door
Then he, and I, will sail together
all around the world once more
