The Sailor Boy walks
Hand in hand with his girl
Their fingers intertwined
And his love is real
And he’ll always be true
As true as the sea in his mind

The Sailor Boy walks
With his girl by his side
Below the reaching tree
His heart is for her
Yet he yearns all the time
To see his home the Sea

The Sailor Boy walks
With his girl on his arm
Along the rocky shore
The sea calls to him
But he’ll never go back
For he loves his girl much more

I have also posted a photo of said couple; I believe it is called "the Sailor Boy."
