Nina & Frederik - Listen to the ocean
Tekst en muziek: Nina Magdalena Møller en Frederik Jan Gustav Floris baron van Pallandt
(1958)






Oh oh ohohoh
Oh ohohoh ohoh



There’s a world of sun and sand
Full of sky and far from land
Where evening breezes caress the shore
Like a gentle comforting hand



Fragrant blossoms, honey bees
Careless laughter upon the breeze
And lovers fading to pools of deep
Purple shadows among the trees



Listen to the ocean, echoes of a million seashells
Forever it’s in motion
Moving to a rhythmic and unwritten music
That’s played eternally



The sound of a seagull’s distant cry
His wings like parentheses drawn in the sky
And two white birds clinging like foam
To the crest of a wave rolling by



The silence of noon, the glamour of night
The heat of the day when the fish won’t bite
These are the things that remind me of
The day you sailed out of sight



Listen to the ocean, echoes of a million seashells
Forever it’s in motion
Moving to a rhythmic and unwritten music
That’s played eternally



Oh oh ohohoh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh ohohoh
Oh oh ohohoh
