    Down On Longboat Key

    She sits and stares out the window at the water
    Every night down at Longy's Cafe
    All alone she sips her Pina Colada
    Talking to herself dreaming time away
    The story is that a dark haired sailor
    Stole her heart many years ago
    He promised her he'd come back and take her
    Around the world, bring her hills of gold

    Down on Longboat Key
    Where the island sand meets the gulf stream breeze
    Down on Longboat Key
    She spends her life in a dream
    On Longboat Key
    Down on Longboat Key
    Down on Longboat Key

    Each afternoon as the smelt boats comes in
    She runs to meet them down at the pier
    She sees the fishermen, the nets and the sunset
    But she don't see him, her eyes fill with tears
    She stands there looking at the crystal blue water
    And in the coral she imagine pearls
    She makes believe he brought them all the way from China
    Then the water swirls
    The blue green water swirls

    Down on Longboat Key
    Where the island sand meets the gulf stream breeze
    Down on Longboat Key
    She spends her life in a dream
    On Longboat Key
    Down on Longboat Key
    Down on Longboat Key

    Young sailors makes a play to take her home
    She says,No, I'm already taken.
    Oh, they just laugh when she mentions his name
    She keeps on waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

    Down on Longboat Key
    Where the island sand meets the gulf stream breeze
    Down on Longboat Key
    She spends her life in a dream
    Down on Longboat Key (Down on Longboat Key)
    Down on Longboat Key, yeah, yeah

    Down on Longboat Key (down on Longboat
    Where the island sand meets the gulf stream breeze
    Down on Longboat Key (Down on Longboat Key)
    Down on Longboat Key, yeah, yeah
    Down on Longboat Key...
