SAILOR BOYS (Charles Aznavour / Herbert Kretzmer) Liza Minnelli - 1991 My early years were years of joy My parents taught me that in pride But then I met a handsome boy Who took my childhood in his stride A golden youth of careless whim Who once upon a summer's day Persuaded me to lay with him And stole my innocence away Sailor boys, I wait beside the harbour gate I'm here in sunshine and snow For lonely boys and eager boys For boys with nowhere to go I raise my arms to greet you home To give you shelter From the wild winds of the sea Sailor boys, come and sail with me In attic bedrooms high above The world of ordinary men The golden boy and I made love For love was all that mattered then There in the hollows of his bed He took my passion and my pride And swore by heaven overhead That he would love me till he died Sailor boys, I wait beside the harbour gate I'm here in sunshine and snow For lonely boys and eager boys For boys with nowhere to go I raise my arms to greet you home To give you shelter From the wild winds of the sea Sailor boys, come and sail with me He disappeared without a trace Perhaps he ran away to sea I should have known he couldn't face The child that grew inside of me And now I soothe with lullabies The golden girl he'll never know She has his bold and restless eyes But only mine will see her grow Sailor boys, I wait beside the harbour gate I'm here in sunshine and snow For lonely boys and eager boys For boys with nowhere to go I raise my arms to greet you home To give you shelter From the wild winds of the sea Sailor boys, come and sail with me Sailor boys, I wait beside the harbour gate I'm here in sunshine and snow For lonely boys and eager boys For boys with nowhere to go I raise my arms to greet you home To give you shelter From the wild winds of the sea Sailor boys, come and sail with me (Transcribed by Monique Adriaansen & Mel Priddle - October 2005)
