My Ship/
The Man I Love


(spoken) Thank you.

My ship has sails
That are made of silk
And its decks are trimmed in gold
And of jam and spice
There's a paradise
In the hold

My ship's aglow
With a million pearls
And rubies fill each bin
And the sun sits high
In a sapphire sky
When my ship comes in

I can wait for years
Til it appears
One fine day
One spring
But the pearls and such
They won't mean much
If there's missing just one thing

I do not care if that day arrives
That dream need never be
If the ship I sing
Doesn't also bring
My own true love
My own true love
My own true love

Someday he'll come along
The man I love
And he'll be big and strong
The man I love
And when he come my way
I'll do my best to make him stay

He'll look at me and smile
I'll understand
And in a little while
He'll take my hand
And though it seems absurd
I know we both won't say a word

Maybe I will meet him someday
Maybe Monday, maybe not
Still, still I'm sure to meet him
One day, maybe Tuesday
Will be my good news day

He'll build a little home
Just meant for two
From which I'll never roam
Who would? Would you?
And so all else above
I'm waiting for the man I love
