Morenita

Morenita, gonna make you mine;

Tan bonita, wanna see you shine.

You’re the sunlight in the summertime -

Inspiration of the purest kind.


I fantasize about you with colors, colors from the sky,

And the cool wind of the morning surrounds me as I slowly close my eyes.

The sweet mist of your soft breath intoxicates me, lulls to sleep my mind,

‘Cause you drown me, you drown me like a siren in the ocean when you hold me in your arms.


Morenita, gonna make you mine;

Tan bonita, wanna see you shine.

You’re the sunlight in the summertime -

Inspiration of the purest kind.


If I lose you, if I lose you when the sun sets

And the pink light fades into the dark,

The inspiration’s gonna stay with me;

Can’t hold on--gotta set you free.

Hope that you blow back before too long.


Morenita, gonna make you mine;

Tan bonita, wanna see you shine.

You’re the sunlight in the summertime -

Inspiration of the purest kind.
