 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Sweet wind blowing off the bay 
Sweeping the heat of the day away 
Making the leaves of the palm trees sway 
Down here tonight everything's okay 

Net's coming in and the anchor's down 
Hour of darkness comes around 
Stars dust the sky and the lights go on 
Soon tonight will be filled with song 

Pans gonna play and the fire burn bright 
Talking drums say everything's all right 
Beating of the sea sends a message 
To the far starlight "We're doing okay down here tonight" 

The end of the road's still far away 
But the traveling's better by the light of day 
This hour of darkness is the time to dance 
Lay down your burdens, give the beat a chance
