Songtekst

Hoppa!
Oh, my darling Helena
On the beach of Kitara
Tall and slender there beside me
Is your tender love to guide me

Oh, my darling Helena
On the beach of Kitara
Tall and slender there beside me
Is your tender love to guide me

In the splendour of the moonlight
Covered by the twinkling starlight
In the lovely summer June night
By the rollin' of the sea tide

Wished that it was everlasting
Saw that it's too much I'm asking
Sorrow makes my heart all aching
But you promised to keep waiting

Oh, my darling Helena
On the beach of Kitara
Tall and slender there beside me
Is your tender love to guide me

Must have been my lucky day
Made up my mind to go away
To takin' a holiday in Greece
And take you to Kitara
I'm missing my lucky charms
I'm holding you in my arms
You're giving me paradise
You're giving me paradise

Oh, my darling Helena
On the beach of Kitara
Tall and slender there beside me
Is your tender love to guide me
Oh, my darling Helena
On the beach of Kitara
Tall and slender there beside me
Is your tender love to guide me
Hoppa!
