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.
