Back to Capistrano

I'll come back to Capistrano
With the swallows in the spring
I' shall hear you softly whisper
Love's sweet song and sweetly sing.
We shall meet inside the chapel
And the mission bells will ring.
I'll be back in Capistrano
With the swallows in the spring.

Ah, the year will go more swiftly
Knowing that you love me, too,
And the padre will be waiting
Just to welcome me and you.
And the birds will come as always
With their wedding tails and ties,
All atitter and atwitter
Neath the Capistrano skies.

We shall enter as a couple;
We shall leave as man and wife.
We shall pledge our troth in Heaven
That is last throughout our life.
We shall bless the birds that brought us
To this land so truly blessed.
All the way to Capistrano
in the bright and golden west.

I'll come back to Capistrano
With the swallows in the spring.
I shall hear you softly whisper
Love's sweet song and sweetly sing.
We shall meet inside the chapel
And the mission bells will ring.
I'll be back in Capistrano
With the swallows in the spring.
