VERSE 01: Why do we wait and wander,/with hearts that are true and tried,/for the one who has left us,/by the sad, sad sea-side.Chorus: Oh, why do I wait with an aching heart,/Oh why do I tarry so long;/For his heart is as false as his face is fair,/By the sad sea-side/My darling you have Mamma left,/To love yu all through life,/Do not grieve, darling,/for your Papa, For you have your Mamma yet.VERSE 02: Sweeheart we're left alone/'Mongst strangers without a home,/But there is a loving Father who will guide us through life.VERSE 03: Sad was the day I met you,/I thought you noble and true,/But I find you false and heartless,/As waters at my feet.VERSE 04: Go take your new sweetheart wife,/And be true to one through life,/If you want pardon on high,/Be right in your vows.Verse 05: My baby is by my side,/He's a bright and noble lad;/I ask but to live for him,/By the sad, sad sea-side.
