One More Sunset

The beaches are bare – all the tourists have flown away Back to their daily 9 to 5 I’m glad I’m not there – slaving every boring day But soon enough I will say goodbye Summer came and went so fast this year Faster than I care to know Wish I could stay another day – a week, or so, But there’s one more sunset till I go The streets have all cleared – no more traffic jams at noon We’ve got plenty of rooms in this hotel The temps disappeared like the winds across the dunes Bidding their summer jobs farewell They’ll be back someday when winter warms Seeking work along the row And they will stay, collect their pay, three months or so, But there’s one more sunset till I go I’ll return one day a battered soul To my cozy bungalow Then I will stay a thousand days, a life, or so But there’s one more sunset till I go There’s one more sunset till I go There’s one more sunset
