She sits and stares out the window at the water
Every night down at [Incomprehensible] Cafe
All alone she sips her pina colada
Talkin' to herself, dreamin' time away

The story is that a dark haired stranger
Stole her heart many years ago
He promised her, he'd come back and take her
Around the world, bring her hills of gold

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

Each afternoon as the snug boats come in
She runs to meet them down at the pier
She sees the fishermen, the nets and the sunset
But she don't see him, her eyes fill with tears

She stands there lookin' at the crystal blue water
And in the coral she imagines pearls
She makes believe, he brought them all the way from China
Then the water swirls, the blue-green water swirls

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

Young sailors make a play to take her home
She says, "No, I'm already taken"
Oh, they just laugh when she mentions his name
She just keeps on waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

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

Down on Longboat Key
Where the island sand meets the Gulf Stream Bridge
Down on Longboat Key
Down on Longboat Key yeah yeah
Down on Longboat Key
