"Red Sails in the Sunset" as written by Jimmy Kennedy and Wilhelm Grosz....
Oh come back to me, oh come back to me,
Red sailors, red sailors, bring my love to me!

'Twas down where fisher-folk gather,
I wandered far from the throng,
I heard a fisher-girl singing,
And this refrain was her song

Red sails in the sunset,
Way out on the sea,
Oh carry my loved one
Home safely to me

He sailed at the dawning,
All day I've been blue,
Red sails in the sunset,
I'm trusting in you

Swift wings you must borrow,
Make straight for the shore,
We marry tomorrow,
And he goes sailin' no more

Red sails in the sunset,
Way out on the sea,
Oh carry my loved one
Home safely to me

Oh carry my loved one
Home safely to me
