I Wish Lunch Could Last Forever

from the album Off To See The Lizard


Lyrics

The place down the block, the one with no clock
Covert rendezvous with you at the usual time
I savor the scent of the fish on the grill
Life’s so spicy up on bar-b-q-hill

Lookin’ good, you look so fine
Waiter bring us one more bottle of wine

I wish lunch could last forever
Make the whole day one big afternoon
We’ll begin with dessert a little coconut tart
Mmmm tastes as sweet as a piece of your heart
Cafe au lait beneath the Paris moon

Don’t hide you eyes just wear your disguise
Brazil’s in the air I swear it feels like Mardi Gras time
I savor the scent love that Anik Goutal
As we walk in time to the cathedral bell

I wish lunch could last forever
Make the whole day one big afternoon
We’ll begin with dessert a little coconut tart
Mmmm tastes as sweet as a piece of your heart
Cafe au lait beneath the Paris moon

I wish lunch could last forever
Make the whole day a first time love affair
We’ll begin with a kiss, such a warm place to start
Let me into your life, let me into your heart
Mea culpa mea culpa carnivals in the air
