Lyrics MY BABY'S LIKE ME,
WANTS TO DO THIS,
WANTS TO DO THAT.
AND SO WE DO
JUST AS WE PLEASE.
WE HATE TO BE TOLD
NOT TO GO HERE,
NOT TO GO THERE,
BECAUSE OUR SENTIMENTS
ARE THESE.

WHEN WE WANT TO LOVE,
WE LOVE.
WHEN WE WANT TO KISS,
WE KISS.
WITH A LITTLE PETTING,
WE'RE GETTING SOME FUN OUT OF LIFE.
WHEN WE WANT TO WORK,
WE WORK.
WHEN WE WANT TO PLAY,
WE PLAY.
IN A HAPPY SETTING,
WE'RE GETTING SOME FUN OUT OF LIFE.

MAYBE WE DO
THE RIGHT THING,
MAYBE WE DO
THE WRONG,
SPENDING EACH DAY
JUST WINDING OUR WAY
ALONG.

WHEN WE WANT TO SING,
WE SING.
WHEN WE WANT TO DANCE,
WE DANCE.
YOU CAN DO YOUR BETTING,
WE'RE GETTING SOME FUN OUT OF LIFE!

Lyrics MOON OVER MIAMI,
SHINE ON MY LOVE AND ME,
SO WE CAN STROLL
BESIDE THE ROLL,
OF THE ROLLING SEA.
MOON OVER MIAMI,
SHINE ON AS WE BEGIN,
A DREAM OR TWO
THAT MAY COME TRUE,
WHEN THE TIDE COMES IN.

HARK TO THE SONG
OF THE SMILING TROUBADOURS,
HARK TO THE THROBBING GUITARS,
HEAR HOW THE WAVES
OFFER THUNDEROUS APPLAUSE,
AFTER EACH SONG TO THE STARS.

MOON OVER MIAMI,
YOU KNOW WE'RE WAITING FOR,
A LITTLE LOVE,
A LITTLE KISS
ON MIAMI SHORE.

Lyrics I SAILED AWAY
TO TREASURE ISLAND
AND MY HEART
STOOD STILL
WHEN I LANDED
ON THE SILVERY SHORE.
WE MET THAT DAY
ON TREASURE ISLAND
AND THE SMILE YOU GAVE
WAS THE TREASURE
I'D BEEN CRAVING FOR.

THEN CAME
THOSE MOMENTS OF BLISS
IN THE SHADE
OF THE SHELTERING PALMS.
I STILL REMEMBER YOUR KISS
AS YOU NESTLED
WITHIN MY ARMS.

I LOOKED FOR GOLD
ON TREASURE ISLAND
AND I FOUND THAT GOLD
WHEN YOU GAVE
YOUR GOLDEN LOVE TO ME.
