Michael Franks - Under The Sun Lyrics




Snow in my shoes
Mid-Winter blues
Have got me down
(Just point me South... let's go now)
The clothes on my back
Are too Pasternak
From sole to crown
Where in the hell's the snowplow?
Down 95
We'll come alive
And by the time we get somewhere
Near Savannah
Give Winter the slip
It's well worth the trip
To be together
Under the sun

Under the sun
Stress is undone
With every mile
We travel down that highway
Hot tea and songs
It won't be long
Till we arrive

At our island hideaway
Unpack the car
See how things are
We'll roll up all the Blinds
To let some light in
We've come a long way
Small price to pay
To be together
Under the sun

And every evening watch the sunset
Oh the gardenia scent is sweet
Remember me, I'm from out West and
I need the heat

Under the sun
Over the opal sea
Sometimes a cloud
Sails along harmlessly
Under the sun
Sambaing hand-in-hand
You and me two
Sandpipers in the sand

  11. Pearl Hicks

    I loved two songs by Michael Frank's down in Brazil and summer in New york.

  12. Jazziz Café

    What a lovely tune! Love it! Thanks for share it! Este delicioso "Under the Sun" abría en 2006 el álbum "Rendezvous in Rio" de Michael Franks, de momento su penúltimo trabajo. Diez temas en los que encontramos grandes músicos, como Jeff Lorber, Jimmy Haslip y las guitarras de Chuck Loeb y Romero Lubambo. Un excelente trabajo de Franks que nos hizo esperar casi diez años por el siguiente, "Time Together", de 2011, esperemos no tengamos que esperar tanto esta vez. #SmoothVocals

    I was playing this track for a young lady. And She made a comment to the fact that this kind of music was boring to her. Let's just say that friendship ended before it started.

    Dominic Villanueva

    They just don't understand why jazz music is so gorgeous.

    The Electricians Tool Channel

    You must possess a sophisticated mind to enjoy this beautiful music. We’re the last of a dying breed . That’s why I still buy cd’s and don’t buy streaming music. Because sooner or later this type will be out of print. Then we’ll be living in a time when you have listen to GANGSTA RAP on a dinner with your spouse. ( My GOD Forbid )

    Diane Ashmore

    Thats to bad for her she does not know what good music is,This guy is bad i been listening to him for years Smooth..

    Mr. LA Tours
