South Sea Island Magic is made of the light 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 campfire 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!
