Gerry Rafferty – Cafe In Cabotin lyrics

French-sounding guy
Bon soir mes amis
Welcome to the Cafe le Cabotin

Now we come down to this island in the sun
And it ain't been easy trying to get a day's work done
But tonight's the night we're gonna have ourselves some fun
We're gonna have some fun.

We're gonna go downtown to the Cafe le Cabotin
Where the baron is waitin' to welcome the rock and roll band
And if get a little crazy, the baron will understand
He'll understand.

Night and day, night and day
We will burn our boats and sail away
Ridin' high, ridin' high
We will leave our mark and say goodbye.

Now the place is jumping, the party has just arrived
Sing away the blues put the light back in your eyes
Yes on a night like this it's good to be alive
Just to feel alive.

Night and day, night and day
We will burn our boats and sail away
Ridin' high, ridin' high
We will leave our mark and say goodbye.

But the daylight comes, it's time to let it be
Yes the sun is up and shining on the sea
It was one more night and one more memory
Just a memory.

Night and day, night and day
We will burn our boats and sail away
Ridin' high, ridin' high
We will leave our mark and say goodbye.
