Found the following online:

"E.W. Rogers and Charles Collins, Seagull! (London: Francis, Day & Hunter, 1905)

2 A little girl stood one day feeding the gulls in childish way
3 Hearing they'd come from the far-off sea, said to one please take a message for me
4 To my Daddy, a sailor man bold, in his big ship on the foam
5 Tell him his little girl does want him so
6 Sea-gull, sea-gull, fly away over the sea
7 If you see a big ship sailing o'er the foam
8 Tell my Daddy that his little girl is waiting for him at home
9 The winter is o'er and the gulls had flown
10 Tearfully, she said, 'Oh, faithless gull, I gave a message to you'
11 Sea-gull, sea-gull, fly away o'er the sea
12 The tempest was howling around the ship
13 Then came the gulls and the storm was past
14 Shoreward a boat comes, a big man jumps out
15 Sea-gull, sea-gull, fly away o'er the sea
