1. If I a bird could be, I should fly o’er the sea, Far far a-way
Mid snowy clouds in air, I should go racing there Swifter than they.
2. High o’er the ocean blue I should go flying through clear blowing wind,
Leaving the ships below, Sailing along so slow, Far far behind.
3. All a long summer’s day Over the seas away, Far would I roam;
But when the hour was late, I should go flying straight Back to my home.
