by Karl Flaster (1905 - 1965)

Song of the Albatross
Language: English 
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!
