Eb                                            Ab
Sally wake up you don't have to pretend anymore
Bb                                                                                    Eb
'Cause while you were sleeping I drove us to someplace the weather will always be warm
Eb                                             Ab
We can go outside and bury our faces in the sun
        Bb                                                                     Eb
There's no need to worry 'cause no one will ask us where it is that we came from
       Ab          Eb        Ab                       Bb
We can walk on Main Street, dance in these honky tonk bars
Ab         Bb            Eb
No one will know who we are

Ab Eb Ab

Eb                                                Ab
Well you like the water so much you could be a fish
Bb                                                                     Eb
We're right by the ocean so you can go dipping any old time that you wish
Eb                                                         Ab
We'll watch the sunset, make love in the old lifeguard stand
Bb                                                                            Eb
When the setting is done and we've lost the sun we will nap on a blanket upstairs
       Ab        Eb      Ab                       Bb
We can walk on water, dance in the light of the moon
Ab          Bb         Eb
Honey, just me and you

Ab Eb Ab

Eb                                                     Ab
We'll wake to a restaurant with fancy napkins and plates
Bb                                                                               Eb
We'll watch the old man as he walks to the big white piano and sits down and plays
Eb                                              Ab
The maitre d' calls me lucky as he pours our wine
Bb                                                                                  Eb
What a beautiful girl and I know in this world that the good ones are so hard to find
       Ab           Eb      Ab                    Bb
We can walk on red carpet, dance to our favorite songs
Ab           Bb            Eb
We can stay all night long

Ab Eb Ab

Eb                                             Ab
Sally wake up, you don't have to pretend any more
Bb                                                                                    Eb
'Cause while you were sleeping I drove us to someplace the weather will always be warm
