I want to rule the islands
And I want to rule the sea
But if you're not coming back
I will sleep eternally

And I want no heavy diamonds
And pearls crush my teeth
I just want my sailor
To sail back to me

Captain has a treasure
He says I hold the key
But old mangroves
And sweet winds blow songs
Of you and me

I want to rule the islands
And I want to rule the sea
But if you're not coming back
I will sleep eternally

Songwriters
MARSHALL
