In a pool of gold, and lights in the night 
In the night reaching neon waves of sight.

On the corner. Take a trip out here. 
Hustle, bustle, shove and fuss 
Will greet you if you stay there. 
I'm without a care. 

 Fresh fruit and sea fish, 
Are in abundance here. 
But they don't allow 
The natives at your door 
 Selling booze 
 Smuggled from another shore.
