Lyrics

Young man, sailor, had to leave his wife In the prime of his life for sea
Wants to mail her a thousand kisses for the daughter he's never seen
To my girl: you fill my heart each time I start to think of you
And little lady: tell your Mother I have no other love

I wish I were home girl, so I could be with you
And feel the warmth of your love
Tell our baby I'll try to be the Daddy she's dreamin' of

Young man, Navy, had an obligation to defend the Nation's pride
Dreamed of a day he would return from service
And be back by his family's side
To my girl: the light of you, gets me through the darkness
And little lady: tell your Mother I have no other love

I wish I were home girl, so I could be with you
I'm praying to God up above
Tell our baby I'll try to be the Daddy she's dreamin' of
Home girl --ooh I wish I were home girl - hey
I wish I were home girl. I wish I were home
