A family of musicians took shelter for the night
In the little harbor church of St. Cecilia
Two guitars, bata, bass drum and tambourine
Rose of Jericho and Bougainvillea

This is a lonely life 
Sorrows everywhere you turn
And that's worth something
When you think about it
That's worth some money
That's worth something
When you think about it
That is worth some money

A trip to the market
A trip into the pearl gray morning sunlight
Settling over Washington
A trip to the market
A trip around the world
Where the evening meal
Is negotiable, if there is one.

This is a lonely life
Sorrows everywhere you turn
And that's worth something
When you think about it
That's worth some money
That's worth something
When you think about it
That is worth some money

To prove that I love you
Because I believe in you
Summer skies, stars are falling
All along the injured coast
If I have money
If I have children
Summer skies, stars are falling
All along the injured coast
Oh-wah oh-wah Doo-wop a Doo-wah
Summer skies and stars are falling
All along the injured coast
Oh-wah oh-wah Doo-wop a Doo-wah
Summer skies and stars are falling
All along the injured coast

We are standing in the sunlight
The early morning sunlight
In the harbor church of St. Cecilia
To praise a soul's returning to the earth
To the rose of Jericho and the Bougainvillea

To prove that I love you 
Because I believe in you 
Summer skies, stars are falling 
All along the injured coast 
If I have money
If I have children
Summer skies, stars are falling 
All along the injured coast

If I have weaknesses 
Don't let them blind me now
Summer skies, stars are falling 
All along the injured coast
Oh-wah oh-wah
Doo Wop a Doo Wah
Summer skies, stars are falling
Leaving the shadow of the valley behind me now
All along the injured coast
Oh-wah oh-wah
Doo Wop a Doo Wah
Summer skies and stars are falling 
All along the injured coast 
Oh-wah oh-wah
Doo Wop a Doo Wah
