                Last night I sailed to Zanzibar,
                ...across the seven seas,
                Danced a dance with Terpsichore,
                ...upon soft evening's breeze,
                I plucked a flower from the skies,
                ...a rose named Southern Cross,
                And sang to her love's madrigal,
                ...upon her heart emboss,
                The signature of all I am,
                ...of all I'll ever be,
                For whilst I hold her in my arms,
                ...'tis only Rose I see,
                I long to feel her soft caress,
       of her passion's sip,
                'Til once again sail seven seas,
                ...upon night's sailing ship.

In everything in you
