Oracabessa moonshine
Is washing over me
The Jacaranda tree
And bathing in the sea
Oracabessa sun up
Will chase the night away
Across the Lada bay
And back to yesterday
A warm Blue Mountain raincloud, welcomed by the land
Made the morning cooler, left a rainbow in the sand
Sweet Hibiscus lingers in my own backyard
With a million different colors of a Hummingbird

Orocabessa sunshine
Is washing over me
The Jacaranda tree
And bathing in the sea
Oracabessa sun up
Will chase the night away
Across the Lada bay
And back to yesterday

The Firefly's romance ignites the evening shade
Makes the twilight dance a moonlight serenade
The smoke sends out a signal above the golden sea
Another day in Ladda Bay is waiting there for me

Oracabessa moonshine
Is washing over me
The Jacaranda tree
And bathing in the sea
Oracabessa sun up
Will chase the night away
Across the Lada bay
And back to yesterday
