My ship

Text: Kurt Weill / Ira Gershwin; Musik: Kurt Weill / Ira Gershwin

My ship has sails that are made of silk,
the decks are trimmed with gold,
and of jam and spice there´s a paradise in the hold.

My ship´s a glow with a million pearls
and rubies fill each bin,
the sun sits high in a sapphire sky
when my ship comes in.

I can wait the years
til it appears
one fine day, one spring,
but the pearls an such
they won´t mean much,
If there´s missing just one thing.

Do not care if that day arrives
that dream need never be,
If the ship I sing
doesn´t also bring
my own true love to me.

If the ship I sing
doesn´t also bring
my own true love to me.
