about

Our protagonist dreams lucidly of running away with a beautiful native girl from Tahiti's Moorea island and sailing off into south seas. Delivered in a melange of soul, bossa nova and R&B.

lyrics

Moorea Girl - words and music Allan Thomas and Ed Haaker

She holds me tight Polynesian night like a fantasy come true
Taking her away and sailing to distant shores

Like Fletcher Christian from her majesties ship the Bounty
Who fell in love with a brown eyed native girl

*Stow away with me beyond the painted sea
We can have it all
Leave your troubles behind we'll find everything we need
Moorea girl my sweet girl

We’ll set our course for uncharted isles
Hunker down where they’ll never find you
Dive for lobster sleep in a bamboo hut

*Steal away with me beyond the painted sea
We'll can have it all
Leave your troubles behind I know we'll find everything we need
Moorea girl sweet girl

Grab what you need
Meet me down by the shore
Before they catch on and discover our plan
And take you away from me

From Ranigaroa to Samoa, Nuku Hiva to Rapa Nui
We'll sail around unbound living the dream

I'll never go back to my other life
6 screaming kids and a scolding wife

*Sail away with me beyond the painted sea
We can have it all
Leave your troubles behind
I know we'll find everything we need
Moorea girl my sweet girl

Moorea girl, my sweet girl
Moorea girl my sweet girl
