Subject: RE: Lyr Req: German pop songs of '60's
In my opinion, the last thing the world needs is another love song. Therefore, I'm pointing out that the words to the Connie Francis song mentioned above are all wrong as a translation of "Seeman."

"Seeman" acknowledges that the sailor has no desire for a home or a lover. His home is the sea, his goal is the horizon, and his friends are the stars.

It is a refreshing change.

I studied German in high school and we sang this song. It was so exciting to be able to understand "a real song"!
