She sits and stares out the window at the water
All alone she sips her pina colada

Stole her heart many years ago
Around the world, bring her hills of gold
Down on Longboat Key
Down on Longboat Key
Down on Longboat Key

She runs to meet them down at the pier
But she don't see him, her eyes fill with tears
She stands there lookin' at the crystal blue water
She makes believe, he brought them all the way from China

Where the island sand meets the Gulf Stream Bridge
She spends her life in a dream on Longboat Key
Down on Longboat Key
Young sailors make a play to take her home
Oh, they just laugh when she mentions his name

Where the island sand meets the Gulf Stream Bridge
She spends her life in a dream
Down on Longboat Key yeah yeah
Down on Longboat Key
Down on Longboat Key
Down on Longboat Key
