Release date: 22 November 1968

Half of what I say is meaningless,
But I say it just to reach you, Julia, Julia
Julia, ocean child, calls me.

So I sing a song of love, Julia
Julia seashell eyes,
Windy smile, calls me.
So I sing a song of love, Julia.

Her hair of floating sky is shimmering,
In the sun.

Julia, Julia, morning moon, touch me.
So I sing a song of love, Julia

When I cannot sing my heart,
I can only speak my mind, Julia
Julia sleeping sand, silent cloud, touch me.

So I sing a song of love, Julia.
Mmm calls me.
So I sing a song of love for Julia, Julia, Julia.
