Lyrics

(chorus)
Have you seen Teresa?
Oh where can she be?
I just want to find out
if she’s still mad at me.

Working on a sailing ship;
that’s one way to see the world in style.
Did I tell you my story
of one visit to the Caribbean Isles?
We anchored in St. Marteen
while Carnival was raging through the night.
I met a girl, Teresa, there.
The kind of girl that makes you stare.
And then she disappeared into the night.
(chorus)

We danced away the evening.
We spoke with deep emotion through the night.
We made love in the ocean.
I remember how my body felt so light.
And as the sun was coming up
I walked her home and then she let me in.
I remember to this day
how we gave our love away,
hoping that the time would never end.
(chorus)

I was not the only one
to cry when that big ship sailed away.
And no one else has ever touched me
deep inside the way she did that day.
That crossroads is behind me now.
There’s no way I could make the other turn.
But when I here the Soca play
the music makes me want to stay.
A fire deep within me starts to burn.
(chorus)
