Lyrics A SLEEPY LAGOON,
A TROPICAL MOON,
AND TWO ON AN ISLAND.
A SLEEPY LAGOON
AND TWO HEARTS IN TUNE
IN SOME LULLABY LAND.
THE FIREFLIES' GLEAM
REFLECTS IN THE STREAM,
THEY SPARKLE AND SHIMMER.
A STAR FROM ON HIGH
FALLS OUT OF THE SKY
AND SLOWLY GROWS DIMMER.
THE LEAVES IN THE TREES
ALL DANCE IN THE BREEZE
AND FLOAT ON THE RIPPLES.
WE'RE DEEP IN A SPELL,
AS NIGHTINGALES TELL
OF ROSES AND DEW.
THE MEMORY
OF THIS MOMENT OF LOVE
WILL HAUNT ME FOREVER.
A TROPICAL MOON,
A SLEEPY LAGOON,
AND YOU!
