The water is wide, I can't get over
And neither I have wings to fly
So go and get me to a boat
To carry the both, my love and I

Must I be bound, and she go free?
Am I to love, while she don't love me?
Why should I act a childish part?
And love a girl that breaks my heart?

There is a ship out on the sea
And loaded deep as it can be
But not as deep as in love am I
Don't care if I should live or die

The water is wide, I can't get over
Neither have I the wings to fly
So go and get me to a boat
To carry both my love and I
To carry both my love and I
