When the swallows come back to Capistrano That's the day you promised to come back to me When you whispered, "Farewell", in Capistrano Twas the day the swallow flew out to sea All the mission bells will ring The chapel choir will sing The happiness you'll bring Will live in my memory When the swallows come back to Capistrano That's the day I pray that you'll come back to me All the mission bells will ring The chapel choir will sing The happiness you'll bring Will live in my memory When the swallows come back to Capistrano That's the day I pray that you'll come back to me (Contributed by pineapple)
