Hotel Metropol - Bremerhaven, Germany

"Seemann - (deine Heimat ist das Meer)".

The song's correct title was "Sailor (Your Home Is The Sea)", This German record was recorded in 1960 by Lolita & Das Orchester Werner Scharfenberger, the German title being
"Seemann (deine Heimat ist das Meer)".

The German Lyrics:

Seemann, lass das Traeumen
Denk' nicht an zu Haus
Seemann, Wind und Wellen
Rufen dich hinaus

Deine Heimat ist das Meer
Deine Freunde sind die Sterne
Ueber Rio und Shanghai
Ueber Bali und Hawaii

Deine Liebe ist dein Schiff
Deine Sehnsucht ist die Ferne
Und nur ihnen bist du treu
Ein Leben lang

Seemann, lass das Traeumen
Denke nicht mich
Seemann, denn die Fremde
Wartet schon auf dich

Deine Heimat ist das Meer
Deine Freunde sind die Sterne
Ueber Rio und Shanghai
Ueber Bali und Hawaii

Deine Liebe ist dein Schiff
Deine Sehnsucht ist die Ferne
Und nur ihnen bist du treu
Ein Leben lang

###.

"Sailor"

Petula Clark also had a hit with the song in two different countries, under the title of "Sailor" in England, and as "Marin" in France.

 The English Lyrics:

Sailor, stop your roaming
Sailor, leave the sea
Sailor, when the tide turns
Come home safe to me

As you sail across the sea
All my love is there beside you
In Capri or Amsterdam
Honolulu or Siam

To the harbour of my heart
I will send my love to guide you
As I call across the sea
Come home to me

Sailor, stop your roaming
Sailor, leave the sea
Sailor, when the tide turns
Come home safe to me

###.
