Ilha Formosa

lyrics

You are the one with sails on her bed
You sleep with the sun overhead
And the coral beneath — in up to my neck
Then up on the reef like a shipwreck

The fishermen stars cast nets from the sky
With you in my arms we'll float up high
On the coconut breeze, my castaway love
I'll never leave while above there's a moon in the sky

And we're gonna fly to Thailand
Beautiful Island
Blue ocean surrounds you
So happy I found you

The sea is a grail full up to the brim
We're slapping our scales on the rim
Like two fish on the sand — we'll melt in the sun
But I'll keep you fanned with a leaf from the coconut trees

And we'll ride the breeze to Thailand
Beautiful Island
Blue ocean surrounds you
So happy I found you
