I Wish I Had Someone to Love Me
I wish I had someone to love me
Someone to call me his own
Someone to sleep with me nightly
I'm weary of sleeping alone.
Tonight is our last night together
The nearest and dearest must part
The love that once bound us together
Has cruelly been torn apart.
Meet me tonight in the moonlight
Meet me somewhere alone
I had a sad story to tell you
That I'll tell by the light of the moon.
I wish I had ships on the ocean
I'd line them with silver and gold
I'd fly to the arms of my true love
A young lad of nineteen years old.
If I had the wings of a swallow
I'd fly far over the sea
I'd follow the ship that he sails in
And bring him home safely to me.
