26 MILES (SANTA CATALINA) (Glen Larson / Bruce Belland) The Four Preps - peak Billboard position # 2 in 1958 Twenty- six miles across the sea Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me Santa Catalina, the island of romance, romance, romance, romance Water all around it everywhere Tropical trees and the salty air But for me the thing that's a-waitin' there-romance It seems so distant, twenty-six miles away Restin' in the water serene I'd work for anyone, even the Navy Who would float me to my island dream Twenty- six miles, so near yet far I'd swim with just some water-wings and my guitar I could leave the wings but I'll need the guitar for romance, romance, romance, romance Twenty- six miles across the sea Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me Santa Catalina, the island of romance A tropical heaven out in the ocean Covered with trees and girls If I have to swim, I'll do it forever Till I'm gazin' on those island pearls Forty kilometers in a leaky old boat Any old thing that'll stay afloat When we arrive we'll all promote romance, romance, romance, romance Twenty- six miles across the sea Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me Santa Catalina, the island of romance, romance, romance, romance FADE Twenty- six miles across the sea Santa Catalina is a-waitin' for me (Contributed by boB Cartlidge & Bette Carl - May 2002)
