lirik lagu yankee sailor – great big sea

“yankee sailor”

we were poor
but i was satisfied
and i thought that you were, too

you were pure
and i was terrified
i wasn’t good enough for you

when they sailed
into the harbour
i could see it in your eyes

i knew
that you were dreaming
of leaving me behind

you say “america is beautiful”
and i sure hope you’re right
if i could see you across the water
i’d say “america is beautiful tonight”
i’d say “america is beautiful tonight”

when i met
that yankee sailor
he stood tall and shook my hand

he took pleasure
in the moment
in the measure of a man

then he turned
and left me standing
and he asked you out to dance

but when you met
that yankee sailor
i knew i didn’t stand a chance

you say “america is beautiful”
and i sure hope you’re right
if i could see you across the water
i’d say “america is beautiful tonight”
i’d say “america is beautiful tonight”
beautiful tonight

we were poor
but i was satisfied
and i thought that you were, too

you were pure
and i was terrified
i wasn’t good enough for you

you say “america is beautiful”
and i sure hope you’re right
if i could see you across the water
i’d say “america is beautiful tonight”
i’d say “america is beautiful tonight”
i’d say “america is beautiful tonight”
