Maybe it's you
Maybe it's me
Maybe it's just the constant rhythm of the sea
Maybe it's just that I've never been
The kind who can pass a lucky penny by

Maybe it's wise
Maybe it's not
Maybe it's you who brought the caring I'd forgot
Isn't it nice to talk about the special way
That you smile whenever I'm around

Rising on the shore
The ocean came
Walks along the waves of velveteen
His only thought
Was love for me

Couldn't we stay?
Or must we go
Couldn't we stay?
And watch the splashing rock we throw
Only a fool would want to leave this paradise
That I find whenever you're around
Only a fool

Isn't it nice to talk about the special way
That you smile whenever I'm around
Rising on the shore
The ocean's King
Walks along the waves of velveteen
His only thought
Was love for me

Couldn't we stay?
Or must you go
Couldn't we stay?
And watch the splashing rocks we throw
Only a fool would want to leave the paradise
That I find whenever you're around
Only a fool
Only a fool
