Buffett, Jimmy - I Wave Bye Bye Lyrics




Just outside the harbor
All the ships asleep
Maybe one cold watchman
Walks a lonely beat
And way out on the water
A ship is under sail
Leaving wavy starlight
And a dreamer in her trail

I wave bye bye
I pray Godspeed
I wish you lovely weather
More luck than you'll need
You'll only sail in circles
So there's no need to cry
Oh, I'll see you again one day
And then I waved bye bye

A sailing ship reminds me
Of a certain girl
Who left a certain dreamer
To sail into her world
I've very friendly postcards
From very far away
But they just remind me
Of a certain day

When I waved bye bye
I prayed Godspeed
I wished you lovely weather
More luck than you'll need
We only sail in circles
So there's no need to cry
Yes, I'll see you again one day
And then I'll wave bye bye

    I Wave Bye Bye
    Jimmy Buffett

    Just outside the harbor
    All the ships asleep
    Maybe one cold watchman
    Walks a lonely beat
    And way out on the water
    A ship is under sail
    Leaving wavy starlight
    And a dreamer in her trail

    I wave bye bye
    I pray Godspeed
    I wish you lovely weather
    More luck than you'll need
    You'll only sail in circles
    So there's no need to cry
    Oh, I'll see you again one day
    And then I waved bye bye

    A sailing ship reminds me
    Of a certain girl
    Who left a certain dreamer
    To sail into her world
    I've very friendly postcards
    From very far away
    But they just remind me
    Of a certain day

    When I waved bye bye
    I prayed Godspeed
    I wished you lovely weather
    More luck than you'll need
    We only sail in circles
    So there's no need to cry
    Yes, I'll see you again one day
    And then I'll wave bye bye
    Bye bye
