Coast of Malabar Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Far away across the ocean
Underneath an Indian star
Dwells a dark eyed lonely maiden
On the coast of Malabar

In the harbor, where we anchored
I can see her shy and sweet
With a bunch of wine-red roses
And the wild waves at her feet

Oh fare thee well, my little dark eyed queen
Fare thee well, my Indian star
In my heart you'll live forever
On the coast of Malabar

"Come to me", I hear her calling
Across the ocean, wild and far
"Come to me again and love me
On the coast of Malabar"

And my thoughts keep ever turning
To that far-off distant shore
And the dark eyed girl who loved me
But I'll see her never more

Oh fare thee well, my little dark eyed queen
Fare thee well, my Indian star
In my heart you'll live forever
On the coast of Malabar
