Jimmy Buffett – I Wish Lunch Could Last Forever lyrics

The place down the block, the one
With no clock
Covert rendezvous with you at the
Usual time
I savor the scent of the fish on
The grill
Life's so spicy up on bar-b-q-hill

Lookin' good, you look so fine
Waiter bring us one more bottle of wine

I wish lunch could last forever
Make the whole day one big afternoon
We'll begin with dessert a little coconut tart
Mmmm tastes as sweet as a piece of your heart
Cafe au lait beneath the Paris moon

Don't hide you eyes just wear your disguise
Brazil's in the air I swear it feels like Mardi Gras time
I savor the scent love that Anik Goutal
As we walk in time to the cathedral bell


I wish lunch could last forever
Make the whole day a first time love affair
We'll begin with a kiss, such a warm place to start
Let me into your life, let me into your heart
Mea culpa mea culpa carnivals in the air
