Sweet wind blowing off the bay
Sweeping the heat of the day away
Making the leaves of the palm trees sway
Down here tonight everything's okay

Net's coming in and the anchor's down
Hour of darkness comes around
Stars dust the sky and the lights go on
Soon tonight will be filled with song

Pans gonna play and the fire burn bright
Talking drums say everything's all right
Beating of the sea sends a message
To the far starlight "We're doing okay down here tonight"

The end of the road's still far away
But the traveling's better by the light of day
This hour of darkness is the time to dance
Lay down your burdens, give the beat a chance
