Seems like you’re always dreaming
Your mind is wandering far away
Thinking 'bout your boy in China
A junkie on the China Sea

Oh your mother told me so
You’re gonna be all right

Don’t let your heart get broken
You know how much he loved to sail
Remember how you heard that steamer whistle blowing
Made him cry all day

Oh mama, she done told me so
You’re gonna be all right
Ooh

I can hear that whistle
I can hear it blowing
I can hear that whistle
I can hear it blowing
(repeat to fade)
