Like a swallow,
Ready to travel the great distance,
He gets onto the ship,
At the dockyard.
She starts for the ocean,
And his loved ones wave at him,
Till he fade in the horizon,
Gone from their sight.
As she drifts on the gigantic ocean waves,
Adjusting her sails to the blowing wind,
He makes a promise,
To return home where his heart lies.
