{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 sh*r*
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 sh*r*
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
