(Sung to a calypso melody & rhythm)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I was sailing east on 26-north, then south on 65-west
Taking a delivery to the islands I like best
All at once and just ahead in the middle of the sea
I saw a girl on another boat and she was smiling back at me

And I found love in the middle of the ocean
Filled my body with emotion
As the two boats passed
I found love in the middle of the ocean
And I got a funny notion
That this one is gonna' last!

(So, what I did...)
Well, I picked up the VHF and I called on Channel 16
You there off our starboard bow, this is the yacht, "Tortola Queen"
How are you and where're you from and tell me, by the way
Who's that pretty lady up on the foredeck lookin' back this way?

And I found love in the middle of the ocean
Filled my body with emotion
As the two boats passed
I found love in the middle of the ocean
And I got a funny notion
That this one is gonna' last!

(Well, it didn't, but...)
Funny how these things occur
For three more days I thought of her
As I sailed into Jost Van Dyke
With her nowhere in sight!
Then it was in old Road Town
I finally tracked that woman down
And held her in my arms all through the night!!

Well, now we sail in company, my new first mate and I
Sailing for Antigua from Tortola, BVI
Making love every night and sailing everyday
Making me so happy when she turns to me and says

I found love in the middle of the ocean
Filled my body with emotion
As the two boats passed
I found love in the middle of the ocean
And I got a funny notion
That this one is gonna' last
Filled my body with emotion
As the two boats passed
And I got a funny notion
That this one is gonna' last!
