Lyrics

Hey-hey it's the tall sail
On a beach reach for java
Make way for to Java
Watching for Boogies
Hey-hey it's a dreaming
I would burn you if you should die
Hey-hey I would burn too
If you should lie upon that bamboo pyre

CHORUS
  I dream of Amlapura
  Never saw in all my life a more shining jewel
  I dream of Amlapura
  Of an ocean or dream of a princess in stone

Hey-hey golden roses around
A rajah's mouth
Hey-hey all the dead children buried standing
A flying Dutchman 
Smoking gun and spice wind

CHORUS

I dream of Amlapura
Of a princess in stone
Hey-hey it's a tall ship
Hey-hey 
Hey-hey
Amlapura
