I left my heart behind so long ago
On a sandy beach where it doesn’t snow
Where the wind is brash and the waves ride high
And the cliffs above try to reach the sky.
Now my heart still yearns for that touching sight
That I’ve dreamt about too many a night
In that foreign land far across the seas
Where our boys lie in graves beneath the trees.
I pray to God that we do not forget
War is the devil that we all have met !
