Demo version (3:26)

Oh my sweetheart, very shortly, Oh my sweetheart, very shortly,
These old shoes will transport me These old shoes will transport me
To a taxi that is waiting To a taxi that is waiting
To take me to the station. To take me to the station.
At the station is a train
With a seat booked in my name.
I am coming home again.

Elaine, Elaine, Elaine, Elaine. Elaine, Elaine, Elaine, Elaine.
Yeah.

When the train can go no farther When the train can go no farther
I’ll go down to the harbour, I’ll go down to the harbour,
Where a grand old ocean liner Where a grand old ocean liner
Yearns to leave this land behind her. Yearns to leave this land behind her.
And when we are under way,
I will shout a loud “Hooray!”
I am coming home again.

Elaine, Elaine, Elaine, Elaine. Elaine, Elaine, Elaine, Elaine.
Yeah.
Elaine.

Okay.

After days and days of water, After days and days of water,
I’ll sure be looking forward I’ll sure be looking forward
To the news that we’ve made land-fall To the news that we’ve made land-fall
And I sure would be thankful And I sure would be thankful.
If upon the dock that day
Is the one for whom I came,
A young beauty by the name...

Of Elaine, Elaine, Elaine, Elaine. Elaine, Elaine, Elaine, Elaine.
