Story

A young girl is fascinated by the land she can see from her Island home far across the sea. She pleads with a boatman to take her there. He being a wise man knows it would be wrong, and tells her the reason why he cannot take her.

Lyrics

Hey little girl, I've seen you once before. Down along the quayside where the boats sail into shore. I bet you can't remember when you cried out to me. Take me from this island to the land across the sea, but how can I take you where the deep blue waters flow. You'll be far from home with a long way still to go. Hey little girl the sun is going down The tide will soon be high and I must leave this town. I bet you won't remember when you cried out to me. Take me from this island to the land across the sea, but how can I take you where the deep blue waters flow, you'll be far from home with a long way still togo.
