I Cover The Waterfront lyrics

Writer(s): comden/green/styne

I cover the waterfront
Im watching the sea
Will the one I love be coming back to me?

I cover the waterfront
In search of my love
And Im covered by a starless sky above

Here am I patiently waiting, hoping and longing
Oh, how I yearn!
Where are you?
Are you forgetting?
Do you remember?
Will you return?

I cover the waterfront
Im watching the sea
For the one I love must soon come back to me
