by Karl Flaster (1905 - 1965)

Language: English 
Down on the beach, where the tide comes in,
And the ships go out to sea,
I sit all day, 
Tho' the clouds be gray,
For my love will come to me!

I've waited long on the sandy shore,
Where the long-billed seagulls cry,
But it's naught to wait,
Tho' my love is late,
For she's coming by and by.
