I Cover the Waterfront

1933 – Johnny Green / Edward Heyman

I cover the waterfront
I’m watching the sea
Will the one I love be coming back to me?

I cover the waterfront
In search of my love
And I’m covered by a starless sky above

Here am I patiently waiting, hoping and longing
Oh, how I yearn!
Where are you?
Are you forgetting?
Do you remember?
And will you return?

I cover the waterfront
I’m watching the sea
For the one I love must soon come back to me
