“Casablanca Moonlight” Lyrics

Motor yacht pulses in the Casablanca moonlight
Pomade and perfume fill the summer air
Ladies of the island
Ladies of estate
Mingle close and dance the rumba
That’s why they’re there

Moroccan magic pouring off the silver screen
Taking me to places no one has ever been
Fly the China Clipper
Sail the Sally B.
There’s no need to try to tell me
It’s not what it seems

And it all takes me home
It all takes me home
It all takes me home

Summer sun Havana palms sway beside the clear green sea
Movies of Havana, all that I can see
Still enchantment wakes me
Enchantment takes me
To the promise of perfection
Outside the dream

[break]

And it all takes me home
It all takes me home
It all takes me home

Motor yacht pulses in the Casablanca moonlight
Pomade and perfume fill the summer air
Ladies of the island
Ladies of estate
Mingle close and dance the rumba
That’s why they’re there

It all takes me home
It all takes me home
It all takes me home
