{red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea}
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me
{she sailed at the dawning, all day I've been blue}
Red sails in the sunset, I'm trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And she goes sailing no more

{red sails in the sunset, way out on the sea}
Oh, carry my loved one home safely to me



Swift wings you must borrow
Make straight for the shore
We marry tomorrow
And she goes sailing no more

{red sails in the sunset}
Way out on the sea (ooh-wee-ooh, wee-ooh)
Oh, carry my loved one
{home safely to me}

{bracketed words are sung by nat in unison with background singers}
(words in parentheses are sung by background singers only)
