Ray Charles - On A Desert Island With Thee Lyrics




[Galahad]
Come, sit thee near,
Place thyself upon my knee.
Make an end of thy fear,
For I love but thee in Camelot.

[Evelyn]
Oh, no not here,
Where observed by all we'll be.
Should thy father appear,
He would surely scold and damn a lot.

[Galahad]
Care not a jot.
Harken to my plot:
Soon we'll retreat to a sweet spot!

Oh, for a year
On a desert island with thee,
Out in the sheer middle of the sea.
We'll sing tra-la;
Wouldn't we be happy and gay,
With thy mama many miles away?
In the morning air,
Murmur a blessing;
First we'll eat,
Then we will dress.
If it's fair,
We'll be caressing,
If it rains,
We'll caress!
Who knows next year
What the population will be
Out in the middle of the sea?
Patter

[Evelyn]
I'll pack each little thing for thee.
What ten books shall I bring for thee?
We'll need some books to read.

[Galahad]
Thou needst not bring ten books along.
If thou wilt bring thy looks along,
'Twill be enough for me.
If the heat begins to swelter,
We won't have to fear the sun.
We will lie beneath a shelter
Only big enough for one. -
Let the prudish people quarrel-
We'll forget them for the nonce.
If they think our love immoral,
"Honi soit qui mal y pense."
I'll dress the way that Adam did.

[Evelyn]
And I the way his madam did.

[Galahad]
I'll see enough of thee!

  4. Elvira Reis

    Please if you really, really love our BEAUTIFUL AMERICA.
    STOP LITTERING!
    MY MOM NOW 86 YEARS OLD
    WOULD SAY, DO NOT LITTER
    KEEP AMERICA BEAUTIFUL!
    POCKET THE LITTLE GARBAGE
    AWAY UNTIL YOU SEE THE GARBAGE CAN.
    MOST OF WHAT MAKES OUR STREETS LOOK AWFUL!!
    GOD DOES ONE THING TO MAKE US CLEAN THE FRONT YARD, WHEN HE SENDS THE WIND ( THE GARBAGE YOU THREW COMES BACK TO YOU.) HE WASHES THE ROADS AND
    STREETS WITH RAIN.
    I BELIEVE THAT SOMETIMES IT DOESN'T RAIN, BECAUSE THE
    HOMELESS PRAY " PLEASE GOD, I DO NOT WANT TO GET WET"!

  5. John Sydney Wright

    "My God done shed his grace on thee,
    And you outta love Him for it,

    With brotherhood,from
    Sea to shining sea..."
    Nothin more to be said...

    My race has suffered trials and tribulations at the hands of the government of this country. But it is no different from any other and at the end of that battle we like America on the day. At that beautiful moment we saw the truth of America and it is beautiful. Never before and never again will someone emphasize that fight that struggle and that success in song. Ray's love for our country is shown in how he sings that song and in that he shows just how beautiful our country truly is. Thank you Ray for being a light of yesterday and a beacon for tomorrow.

  50. Seeking The Most High

    The rule of law belongs to a Satanic System because it comes under the guise of real law the law belongs and comes from the most high, Elohiym the first and last remember the world was handed over unto the wicked because of our ancestor's contrary walk against our Father Yahuah it's written Deuteronomy 28. Look up 5$ Indians.
    There is none above the most high and no balance in between!!!!! See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv8TcHHLngo

  74. Che Guevara

    I don't see beautiful expect hate, let us be honest, But it is not only in America it is all over the world. We expect too much from the feeble mind human.

  75. Nick P

    "The prerequisites of civilization are not an interesting subject to those who concentrate on its shortcomings—that is, on the extent to which what currently exists as the fruits of centuries of efforts and sacrifices is inferior to what they can produce in their imagination immediately at zero cost, in the comfort and security provided by the society they disdain. What would otherwise be a purely personal idiosyncrasy becomes socially ominous when it generates a whole vision of the world in which very real and often very painful predicaments are dealt with as if they were entirely different from what they are. That vision is the vision of cosmic justice. In addition to its other dangers, the quest for cosmic justice is incompatible with the fundamental principles of the American revolution—the rule of law, individual freedom, and democratic government."

  84. Chris Miller

    I remember when this album came out, I heard this song, an heard Some Where Over the Rainbow...……...It was on the other side...….Those 2 songs helped me get over my Moms Passing...…..Over the Rain Bow was her favorite song in the world. My band played it for her on Mothers day when she came to see me in Military School in S.C. GBA

  85. Brian Valentas

    People who disliked this song is ether not American or a heartless liberal.

  86. Jurgen Stenhouse

    I'm English, and I loved this. I wish Donald Trump could watch and listen to this he could have learned so much from a truly great American like Ray Charles - humility, charm, manners, class - and the difference between true patriotism, and jingoist bigotry. Let's not worry too much - there are millions of Americans who do understand this who'll be taking over before too long

  92. Frank Parker

    From this English Patriot to all American Patriot's, Happy Independence Day.

  93. Ruth Slater

    THIS IS HOW THE SOUL SINGS THIS "AMERICA " WELL DONE SIR .

  94. Beaman Surchit

    Great song. Special version.
    I hope the 543 thumbs down weren't from Americans.

  95. Joseph NA

    Still brings tears to my eyes...I hope we aren't the Last generation to Love America.
    If any of the younger generations hear this song, maybe no one ever told you that America isn't a Place, or even a People. It is an Ideal...an idea. That's why Anyone can embrace it...wherever you are.
    America is a Standard which states that, "You must EARN your keep...but, you may KEEP what you earn.". That no one...no Government has a right to take what's yours without YOUR consent.
    That YOU have a right to DEFEND yourself and what's yours from ANYONE that tries to take from you without it.
    That your RIGHT to live as you wish extends as far as the person NEXT TO YOU, and noone can say otherwise Legally...no matter what Corrupt Politicians, or Judges say.
    America is a STANDARD set ABOVE the Political leaders and even The People...set High for U.S. to live Up to.
    We have failed badly b4 and are in danger of total loss today..cameras & microphones in our faces everywhere, Unconstitutional government mandates, Unconscionable acts of premeditated murder against the most vulnerable praised openly, etc..BUT
    the Tryrunt Wannabees only win if you SURRENDER America in your HEARTS!
