A sailboat in the moonlight and you
Wouldn't that be heaven, a heaven just for two?

A chance to drift, for you to lift
Your tender lips to mine

Some things, dear, that I long are few
Just give me a sailboat in the moonlight and you

To Sweetheart Bay beneath the stars that shine
A chance to drift, for you to lift
Your tender lips to mine

Some things, dear, that I long for are few
Just give me a sailboat in the moonlight and you
