While I’m away, please keep waiting for me
I’m taking the slow train towards Italy
Please don’t think me wrongly, I won’t be very long there

When I return in a week or two’s time
I’ll bring home some photos of girlfriends of mine
I only want to show you just how much I owe you
You’re worth more to me than the roses and wine

Papa bapa papa… papa bapapa…
Papa papapa… papa paba papa…
Papa papa papa… papa bapapa…
Papa papapa… papa paba papa…

Somehow you’re just like a sister to me
Your heart made of gold, always open and free
But now I’m off to London, I have some business undone

When I return, I’ll be bringing to you
A few locks of hair from a girlfriend of two
I see from your expression, we’re parting with depression
But love is worth more from a loved one like you

Papa bapa papa… papa bapapa…
Papa papapa… papa paba papa…
Papa papa papa… papa bapapa…
Papa papapa… papa paba papa…

The love of a mother is what you can give
I’d like you beside me as long as I live
But now I must be going, but where to – there’s no knowing

And when I return, I’ll be bringing to you
A lifetime of knowledge of what girls should do
It’s better late than never, maybe I stay forever
Your love is worth more than a journey or two

Papa bapa papa… papa bapapa…
Papa papapa… papa paba papa…
Papa papa papa… papa bapapa…
Papa papapa… papa paba papa…

You never complain while I’m staying away
Will you forgive me for being this way?
Of all the girls I’ve known, there’s only one I adore

I’m keeping a place for you here, in my heart
I’ve bought you a ring, so let’s make a new start
I’ll stay at home forever, they say it’s now or never
You’re worthy to me, so I pray we won’t part

Papa bapa papa… papa bapapa…
Papa papapa… papa paba papa…
Papa papa papa… papa bapapa…
Papa papapa… papa paba papa…
