Lyrics TWAS ON THE ISLE OF CAPRI
THAT I FOUND HER
BENEATH THE SHADE
OF AN OLD WALNUT TREE.
OH, I CAN STILL SEE
THE FLOWERS BLOOMING 'ROUND HER
WHERE WE MET
ON THE ISLE OF CAPRI.
SHE WAS AS SWEET
AS A ROSE AT THE DAWNING,
BUT SOMEHOW
FATE HADN'T MEANT HER FOR ME.
AND THO' I SAILED
WITH THE TIDE IN THE MORNING,
STILL MY HEART'S
ON THE ISLE OF CAPRI.

SUMMERTIME WAS NEARLY OVER
BLUE ITALIAN SKY ABOVE.
I SAID, LADY, I'M A ROVER,
CAN YOU SPARE A SWEET WORD OF LOVE?

SHE WHISPERED SOFTLY,
IT'S BEST NOT TO LINGER.
AND THEN I KISSED HER HAND
I COULD SEE
SHE WORE A PLAIN GOLDEN RING
ON HER FINGER,
'TWAS GOODBYE
ON THE ISLE OF CAPRI.
