Nightingale, she sails away Upon a sea of song Nightingale, she serenades His lonely, lonely life along When his tired voice is broken His golden hope is gone She makes a lost souls simple longing Somehow not so wrong Nightingale (nightingale) He was strong but he was taken By the thought of his success Those spotlights shadows How they lured him (How they lured him) And took him like all the rest But that old dream don't look good now No, it don't seem quite the same He needs to hear a tender word Won't you sing him home again Nightingale, she sails away Upon a sea of song Nightingale, she serenades His lonely, lonely life along When his strength is slowly going His pride is all but gone She makes a foolish dreamer Listen to one last song Nightingale Ooh, sing, sweet nightingale Oh, na na na na, nightingale Oh, nightingale Oh, nightingale Sing, sing, sing.....
