I'd like to take you by surprise at the grocery store Grab you by the hand and step on the electric door Leave the shopping cart right where it is I betcha somebody's got the same list I wanna take us away from all this to a distant shore.
I'd leave the car by the curb with the motor on The tape deck playin' our favorite love song And you'd say "What in the world?" And smile just like a little girl And I'd say "I can't tell you now but it won't be long."
Chorus: I know it sounds funny, but it's true... I get so busy I forget I'm in love with you And every now and then we need to get away to get close again.
Up in the air in a window seat Your head on my shoulder and a blanket around our feet We could leave the kids at home And if you get worried we could telephone We need a weekend of fun for under two hundred dollars complete.
There we would be in a sunny land We'd lie on the beach and you could wiggle your toes in the sand A tropical drink late at night And a midnight dip if the temperature's right The best things turn out better if they never were planned.
