South Sea Is -land Mag -ic is made of the light from the stars,
Bree -zes from the moun -tains and mu -sic from na -tive gui -tars.
South Sea Is -land Mag -ic has tak -en pos -ses -sion of me;
I'm con -tent for ev -er to lin -ger and dream by the sea.
Do you re -call our meet -ing at a camp -fire that blazed near the o -cean?
A sin -gle word of greet -ing was the start of an end -less de -vo -tion
Moon -light, fire -light, star -light and songs that are old but still new;
South Sea Is -land Mag -ic has brought me the mag -ic of you!
