Sweet Jane
* sł. Dariusz Raczycki, muz. Agata (Król) Boratczuk, tłum. Witold Hrycyk

Hi there, Sweetie, …

Now I´m back where I belong, always thinking of the sea,
and the sailor´s gone for good – loved his bottle more than me.
He left nothing but some memories that I hope to soon forget-
But my daughter runs on board and now the crew sing for her.

Hi there, Sweetie, …
