I can hear the surf on the beaten sand
And the wind in the cocoa trees
And they bear me away to a fairy land
In far off tropic seas

Beautiful Isles of Paradise
Moored in a summer sea
In the land of dreams
Where the coral gleams
An Eden lies waiting for me

I can see a pair of laughing eyes
And a mouth that always smiles
And I wished I had stayed with my brown maid
In those wonderful Paradise Isles
