Oh yeah, and here is a translation, kindly given me by Allan! Thank you kindsirshesaid! ain't it purty?

Here is a fairly good, albeit not quite literal translation of the lyrics:

What walk are the seagulls doing?

What movement do they make at the edge of the sea.

They are seeking the nests of their loves

The nests of the loves they have found

How beautiful to have such loves

In this world that God has made

Give me a little kiss, give me a hug

So that I might be like them

If you wish, dear, come with me

And in my boat I'll carry you

When we arrive at the other shore

New songs I'll sing to you

How beautifully your dark skin shines

Like the waves that burst

Thousands of seashells in the sand

Thousands of pearls in the sea

What do you say, black girl? Why don't you love me

If you are my life, my well being?

Give me a little kiss, give me a hug

Come with me, we go to the sea
