Sanibel

Along the beaches of Sanibel
I’ve got a story, I have to tell

I met a girl
I brought her here
She left me by the pool
So I ordered a beer

She was working all day long
So I just stayed here and wrote her this song

Sanibel, I left my heart on your shore
Sanibel, I left but wanted much more
Sanibel, it was just love right from the start
Sanibel, take care of my heart

There she goes again on the campaign
Me, I hang around, buy a bottle of champagne

A dozen oysters, no, make it more
A lobster or two and back out of the door

Run it back, put it on ice
Just another day in our paradise

Sanibel, I left my heart on your shore
Sanibel, I left but wanted much more
Sanibel, it was just love right from the start
Sanibel, take care of my heart

One of these days
I’m gonna stay right here
On my island lost in the sun

With beach everywhere
I’ll be without a care
And stop this damn life on the run
Wouldn’t that be fun?
So much fun

Hello Captiva, farewell sun
Lying on the beach, the evening’s begun

The journey back to Sanibel
A candlelight dinner and so much more that I can’t tell

The final hours, it has to end
Not a problem, we’ll be back again

Sanibel, I left my heart on your shore
Sanibel, I left but wanted, so much more
Sanibel, it was just love right from the start
Sanibel, I gave you my heart
Sanibel, be good to my heart
