His ship set sail at 10 am
The sun ablaze against the sea
He didn't care that he felt ill
'Cause he was coming home to me

His daddy often took him to the shore
To feel the sand and see the sea
But since the boy preferred to stay on land
He never learned how to swim

We spent a while in the south of France
A time I hoped would never end
And when I left to board the plane back home
He swore that we would meet again

And once in France I took him to the shore
I left him laying on the sand
At my return, my love confessed
He didn't know how to swim

And when the tempest overtook his ship
I wonder if my true love cried
I'll never see him coming home to me
'Cause that's the night my true love died
Yes that's the night my true love died
Oh that's the night my true love died

So listen well to my last request
'Cause if you won't you will be damned
In order to save lonely hearts like mine
Teach your children how to swim
