There's a voice that I just heard calling, I've heard many times before,
And it's calling Neptune's daughter back to the sea once more,
Back to the sea once more, back to the sea once more,
And it's calling Neptune's daughter back to the sea once more.

It's borne on the winds and breezes, and sung on the sea birds' cry,
And when Neptune calls his daughter, then no daughter can deny;
No daughter can deny, no daughter can deny,
When old Neptune calls his daughter, then no daughter can deny.

Ever since that I was a young girl, before I was full-grown
I'd have traded dolls and dresses, for a boat to call my own;
For a boat to call my own, for a boat to call my own;
I'd have traded dolls and dresses, for a boat to call my own.

Now I have my own boat waiting, to sail when the tide's inclined,
And it's Neptune's daughter who must go, and you must stay behind;
And you must stay behind, and you must stay behind,
And it's Neptune's daughter who must go, and you must stay behind.

Think me more of a friend than sweetheart, then it's less of a price you'll pay,
If you yearn for Neptune's daughter, you'll just pine your heart away;
You'll just pine your heart away, you'll just pine your heart away,
If you yearn for Neptune's daughter, you'll just pine your heart away.

For it's well that you should remember, it's well that you should decide,
I was always Neptune's daughter, long before I was your bride;
Long before I was your bride, before I was your bride,
I was always Neptune's daughter, before I was your bride.

Sometimes when the twilight's falling, in tune with the night wind's play,
Will you think of Neptune's daughter, on the ocean far away?
On the ocean far away, on the ocean far away,
Will you think of Neptune's daughter, on the ocean far away?
