HEAVEN ON A TROPIC SHORE © 2000

Gail Marten (lyrics) / Clem Ehoff (music & arrangements)

Performed by Gail Marten & the Clem Ehoff Trio

 

Finally, we’re here together

Paradise, what could be better?

We have found our island in the sun.

Tropic breeze upon our faces

We have found our own oasis

Oh, we thought this day would never come.

I am here with you

You are here with me

An enchanted place

In this world by the sea.

 

Heaven on a tropic shore

This is what we’ve waited for.

Bathing in this lovely ocean

We have found our magic potion

Underneath a sky of endless blue.

I’m the Girl from Ipanema

You’re the only boy I dream of

Now, our long awaited rendezvous.

With the wind in our hair

We’re as free as the air

On this sunlit isle

Not a worry or care.

 

Heaven on a tropic shore

This is what we’ve waited for.

Caro mio, dearest  friend

We are at the rainbow’s end

Sparkling waters kiss the golden sand.

Heaven on a tropic shore

This is what we’ve waited for

 

We’re together in this wonderland.

I am here with you

You are here with me

On this sunlit isle

We’re so easy and free.

 

Heaven on a tropic shore

This is what we’ve waited for.
