I'm like a ship at sea,
That's lost in the rain;
I'm rocking, I'm reeling, I'm searching in vain;
I'm trying hard to find
A gal that once was mine;
Then I'll be happy again!

I'm like a ship without a stern,
I don't know where to turn,
I've been taught a lot of things that I've tried hard not to learn;
Won't someone help me find
The gal that once was mine?
Then I'll be happy again, oh!

I thought she was mine forever,
But I found it was only a dream;
Won't someone endeavor just to bring back my joy supreme?

I'm like a ship at sea,
That's lost in the rain;
I'm rocking, I'm reeling, I'm searching in vain;
I'm trying hard to find
A gal that once was mine;
Then I'll be happy again!
