Franks, Michael - This Must Be Paradise Lyrics




See that shadow cross the mountain
Summer in the warbler's eye
Beauty never is forgotten, though the moment passes by
Imperceptibly the evening slowly dials down the light
All the flora seems to smolder
Water-coloring into the muted pallet of the night

Can you see how our seclusion is complete
With the summertime in bloom
At our feet side by side in the grass staring up at the sky
I assume, this must be paradise
Tenderly now, allow me to demonstrate
You need only undulate
Keeping time with the samba like this while the stars rise
With the moon, this must be paradise

I can think of several uses
For the joys within our reach
And if hunger overtakes us
Open sesame! I brought with me
Banana, plum and peach

Can you see how our seclusion is complete
With the summertime in bloom
At our feet side by side in the grass staring up at the sky
I assume, this must be paradise
Tenderly now, allow me to demonstrate
You need only undulate
Keeping time with the samba like this while the stars rise
With the moon, this must be paradise

    Lyrics
    See that shadow cross the mountain,
    summer in the warbler's eye,
    beauty never is forgotten, though the moment passes by,
    [?] the evening slowly dires down the light,
    all the flora seems to smolther
    water-coloring into the muted pallet of the night.
    Can you see how our seclusion is complete
    with the summertime in bloom
    and our feet side by side in the grass starring up at the sky
    I assume, this must be paradise...
    Tenderly now, all I need to demonstrate,
    you need only ondulate,
    keeping time with the samba llke this while stars rise.
    I assume, this must be paradise...
    I can think of [?]
    for the joys within our reach
    and if hunger overtakes us,
    open sesame! I brought with me
    banana, plum and peach
    Can you see how our seclusion is complete
    with the summertime in bloom
    and our feet side by side in the grass starring up at the sky
    I assume, this must be paradise...
    Tenderly now, all I need to demonstrate,
    you need only ondulate,
    keeping time with the samba llke this while stars rise.
    I assume, this must be paradise...

    How lucky are we to have him.  He pulls us into his tropical realm and any woe is forgotten.  Instantly we are in some far distant place with leaning palm trees with the scent of monoi and sunshine.  Michael Franks has given me air for well over thirty years and his lyrics are the elixir that I long to sip while taking a private baptismal in the warm waters of Captiva....sing for me Michael.

    Burt472

    Agreed...We're lucky to have him.....Makes life more bearable.....
