8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in the key of G.
Down by the southern sea,  There at Waikiki,
Someone waits for me.  Beneath the dreamy summer moon,
Hearts are all in tune.  Lovers softly croon,
Their plaintive melodies of love.
Drifting and dreaming,
While shadows fall.
Softly at twilight,
I hear you call.
Love's old sweet story,
Told with your eyes.
Drifting and dreaming,
Sweet Paradise.
