Oh the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
It's better my darlin', I promise you this
Next time I hold you, I'm not letting go
Will you wait for it darlin'?, I need to know

Well you know I'm a sailor, and tomorrow we sail
It's hard way of livin', but i know it well
And if I surrender my life to the sea
You can marry another, and it's alright with me

Though we won't be together again till the spring
Just imagine the treasures I'll bring
Come lay with me, stay with me, soon I'll be gone
I will remember you all winter long

And when I return to the one that I miss
Oh the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
The sweeter the kiss

(Instrumental Break)

When the mornings are warm, and the valleys are green
I'll come back from wherever I've been
Oh the longer the waiting, the sweeter the kiss
It's better my darlin', I promise you this
The next time I hold you, I'm not letting go
I will give up the ocean forever I know
Forever I know
