Oh, it's aye for the wild sea's rushing roar, and the billows gray that pound the shore For the wild sea foam's my home! Oh, it's life to live on the bounding main, Scud fast and free, Thru pleasure and pain, For the wild sea foam's my home! Oh! the joy when the white moon's beam Floats over the water with silvery gleam, For the wild sea foam's my home! When at last my wild life's done I'll fly to the west with the setting sun For the wild sea foam's my home!
