I have been around the world
Looking for that woman, girl

Or

have been around the world
Looking for that woman/girl


Imo the song is first person, sung to a woman, so it's the former

A friend once insisted it was not woman/girl, but a French word meaning woman

Something to the effect of “Fomondo”



It is def first person, being sung to a woman

Southern Cross is a rewritten song from The Curtis Brothers - Seven League Boots.

You'd probably have to go back to Seven Leagues Boots, of which the song was based and derived from.

See, kids nowadays have it easy. Back in the day we couldn't just look up lyrics and they weren't readily available from music shops etc. So you'd go around for years singing the song wrong, so you'd kind mumble sing the parts you didn't know or tried to fill in.

 

I said enjoy life not end your life.

Speaking of lyrics, I always thought MASH's theme song selection was a little odd when you read the lyrics.
