From Frisco to the Cape
(Från Frisco till Cap)

				T: Ragnar Hasselgren ?
				M: Ernst Rolf

I've sailed the ocean from Frisco around to the Cape,
and I've a lady in most every port.
I've been in back of the eight ball in many a scrape
because of women whom I've gone to court.
For when a girl I see I think appeals to me
I break my neck till I make her my own.
But they get out of hand and never understand
whenever I have to leave them alone.

I never bother to marry for I know too well
I'm better off if I stay as I am.
They've tried to hook me more ways than I ever could tell;
my only out is to pick up and scram.
And I could write book the way the women look
whenever they see they're losing hold.
I leave a broken heart whenever I depart
to find a new love in place of the old.

How can a sailor be true to a girl in Peru
when he's walking with one out in Burma?
And the girl in Capris is waiting there patiently
for the day when my ship will return.
For when a girl I see I think appeals to me
I break my neck till I make her my own.
But they get out of hand and never understand
whenever I have to leave them alone.
