Oh, the captain set me free,
said I could sail today
so when you get this letter from me
I will be far away

We were too young to marry
And too young to know
Dear Rita, I'm sorry
Oh wo, but I had to go

This is my sad song
flying away on the wind
just like a bluebird,
when summer has come an end.

For such a long time
I tried to break away from the sea
But I'm to restless
you know those far away places
were calling me

We´ve just arrived in Shanghai,
and the sky is so blue.
I got leave from the captain,
but Rita where are you.

This is my sad song
flying back home on the wind
just like a bluebird,
when summer has come once again.

For such a long time
I was alone on the sea
Yes, I was restless
but now home is calling me

Oh vov, captain!
Please, please let me go
I miss my Rita
Oh, I miss her, I miss her so

OK, sailer!
I won't stop you
if you wanna go home
But you'll be back, son
'cause sailers like you were born to roam

and sail forever....
