(Da da da da da da da)
(Da da da da da da da)

My rock candy passion is bittersweet And armed to the teeth 'Cause she would rather fall in chocolate Than fall in love Especially with me

I stood under the waterfall With a kiwi-pineapple parasol As Cinderella dropped the crystal ball
And made a concrete cavern
A caterpillar concert hall

I wish that we could sail our sad days away Forever In deep blue seas of papier-mâché
(Let's dance in the moonlight)
A barracuda chased our dog days away Forever Let's sink or swim 'til we fall in love
(And dance in the moonlight)
When we join the yacht club

I would rather go swimming With great white sharks Than wade in romance 'Cause I can never find the courage To ask her to dinner Or even to dance (Dance in the moonlight)

Don't sweat under your overcoat 'Cause my heart can harbor this paddle boat
You'll hit the bottom of the highest note
And the chatty tree frogs will never wanna Leave your throat 
I wish that we could sail our sad days away Forever In deep blue seas of papier-mâché
(Let's dance in the moonlight)
A barracuda chased our dog days away Forever Let's sink or swim 'til we fall in love
(And dance in the moonlight)
When we join the yacht club

Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da

Let go of the world you know
And plug in the partyin' lights Soak your cares in the solar flares
That light up these island nights Orange eclipse I can taste your lips
In the citrus afternoon
If you can fly don't stop at the sky
'Cause there's footprints on the moon
(With you)

I wish that we could sail our sad days away Forever In deep blue seas of papier-mâché
(Let's dance in the moonlight)
A barracuda chased our dog days away Forever 
Let's sink or swim 'til we fall in love
(And dance in the moonlight)
When we join the yacht club
(Let's dance in the moonlight)
When we join the yacht club
