(Papa, Papa Peppone)

Papa, Papa Peppone
Don't look across the sea
'Cause you know you'll never sail out no more

Papa, Papa Peppone
Don't shed a single tear
When they say: "Old man, better stay ashore"

Papa, I know your heart is yearning
Papa, I know your eyes are burning
When you hear the song of the sea
As it sings: "Come back to me"

(Papa, Papa Peppone)

On the beach of a little town in Italy
Stands an old man staring across the sea
But each time as he looks to every ship that goes
He has that feeling that every old sailor knows

Papa, Papa Peppone
Papa, Papa Peppone
Don't look across the sea
'Cause you know you'll never sail out no more

Papa, Papa Peppone
Don't shed a single tear
When they say: "Old man, better stay ashore"

Papa, I know your heart is yearning
Papa, I know your eyes are burning
When you hear the song of the sea
As it sings: "Come back to me"

(Papa, Papa Peppone)
