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 a 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
