Letâ€™s cast off from shore with a strong wind behind us.
Weâ€™ll sail off together somewhere on the sea.
With clear skies above and the stars there to guide us
Right here on the water is where we should be.
Weâ€™ll sail to wherever the four winds are blowing,
The two of us sailing the ocean so green.
Weâ€™ll come upon islands without ever knowing
Just where we are going or what we have seen.
Iâ€™ll be the captain, a man for all seasons.
Youâ€™ll be my first mate, companion and crew.
Then we can drop anchor without any reason
Whenever I sail off together with you.
Weâ€™ll never need worry about colder weather.
Our sails will seek out warmer places to stay.
Weâ€™ll always be happy for weâ€™ll be together
Just doing whatever we want every day.
