Lyrics

The Cocktail Song

Written By: Pauline Berry/Martin Winch

1) Tell your friends you'll be a while, island life is calling,
you deserve a break
Summer haze and blue skies, bikinis and jandals,
lying by the pool
relax and let it be, just swoon, in the afternoon

2) Suddenly its very clear, the afternoons already here, you're feeling really happy
There's flowers in your hair, grains of sand between your toes - You're wearing next to nothing
you'll melt like caramello chocolate, in the afternoon

CHORUS: (then have a)
Long Island Iced Tea, makes you feel alright
Tequila, vodka, bacardi - gin and coca cola, tomorrow - we'll need - coffee

3) Underneath the sea, there's another you and me - I could be your mermaid
Its kinda cool below and baby you know the secrets of the sea
And its our very own sunset, going down tonight
