Somewhere far away

Over Naples Bay

That's where my thougts keep on turning

Down by the sea

Where romance came to me

Picturing the scene

And what might habe been

But it's in vain that I'm yearning

Fate chang'd it all

And I'm left to recall.



'Twas on the Isle of Capri that I found her

Beneath the shade of an old walnut tree

Oh! I can still see the flow's blooming round her

Where we met on the Isle of Capri.

She was as sweet as a rose at the dawning

But somehow fate hadn't meant for me

And tho' I sail'd with the tide in the morning

Still my heart's on the Isle of Capri.

Summer time was nearly over

Blue Italian sky above,

I said "Lady I'm a rover,

Can you spare a sweet word of love?"

She whisper'd softly "It's best not to linger"

And then as I kiss'd her hand I could see

She wore a plain golden ring on her finger

'Twas good-bye on the Isle of Capri.


Soft Italian eyes

Dark as midnight skies

Sleeping or waking they haunt me

Thier magic thrill

Holds a spell on me still

Tho' I know for me

This love may not be

Why does a sweet voice still taunt me

Lost love, it seems

You just bring empty dreams.
