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.
