Come Away To Belize With Me - Jerry Jeff Walker

    Hey come away to Belize with me, show you how simple life can be
    Long hazy days in the sun, where it seems everyone has a smile when we meet
    Under blue skys and emerald seas, warm winds and those coconut trees
    They say your heart never leaves, once you've been down to Belize

    In daylight the sunlight chases the grey lights of lingering night
    Down by the beach a lone hare and he keeps his eye on the fish in the tide
    But I hear the boats, of the fisherman going to the flats where the bonefishes run
    And the folks of San Pedro, all driving the same road, start their long day in the sun


    So, let's get a boat, and some snorkels and go on out to the reef
    We'll leave the fat folks, who wear shoes and white socks with cameras back on the beach
    There's no pain or sorrow, down by the coral and Susan and Brownie and me
    And we'll fish by the reef, for some snappers to eat, as we race the ray back to the beach


    So at sunset we'll go sit, way out on the old deck, till the pink light is gone
    From a funky old bar, I can hear a guitar playing, playing a down island song
    The moon on the water, the pina colada, something you just gotta see
    And that's when you start to notice your heart, has fallen in love with Belize
