For my ship with its golden store.
And I've watched in vain, with strain
From a desolate, lonesome shore.
On that Joyous day when my ship
I may hid farewell to care.
And life henceforth will be Idithe and
With skies that are always fair.
To that blissful day when my ship
I am looking ahead, you bet!

though to think
I haven't launched her yet'
