This song is in the key of F.
Beyond the reef, Where the sea is dark and cold,
My love has gone, And our dreams grow old,
There'll be no tears; There'll be no regretting,
Will she/he remember me; Will she/he forget?
I'll send a thousand flow'rs, When the trade winds blow.
I'll send my lonely heart, For I love her/him so.
Someday I know, She'll/He'll come back again to me.
Till then my heart will be, Beyond the reef.
