Close the door behind you as you wave your last goodbye,

Do so without regret and with your head held high,

One hopes you'll remember us, while voyaging distant land,

As you venture into the world to become a man.

I know you'll be all right, that much I can see,

You'll do great things in life, for it is your destiny,

A fine man you'll become, but know this till the very end

That whenever in doubt, on me you can always depend.

So here's to bittersweet goodbyes, I wish you much luck,

And now I leave you, with a salty kiss and a grainy touch,

But think of this as you head off into the world -

You'll always be my man, and I'll always be your girl.
