South Sea Island magic is made of a life from the stars,
Breezes from the mountains and music from native guitars.
South Sea Island magic has taken possession of me,
I'm content for ever to linger and dream by the sea.
Do you recall our meeting at a camp fire that blazed near the ocean?
A single word of greeting was the start of an endless devotion.
Moonlight, firelight, starlight, and songs that are old but still new,
South Sea Island magic has brought me the magic of you.
