  • Lyrics
  • Come with me, my love
    To the sea, the sea of love
    I want to tell you how much I love you

    Do you remember when we met
    That's the day I knew you were my pet
    I want to tell you how much I love you

    Come with me, to the sea
    Do you remember when we met
    That's the day I knew you were my pet
    I want to tell you how much I love you

    Come with me, to the seaWriter/s: George Khoury, Philip Baptiste
