10000 Islands Song

Morning sun rises. The night’s cold
recedes. Through silver mists behold:
The early light falls on a shore as you
and I have never ever dreamt or seen before.

Wow look at you now,
The Ten Thousand Islands.
It’s such a lovely place
to drop one’s anchor down and stay.
‘Cause you stand up, out in the crowd.
You are one in a million.
Realm of blue-green waves,
you have what the heart craves.

You are a reason to feel glad.
So often we are shown how much the world is mad.
You don’t fall for the lies that are so oft retold
‘Cause you help out and carry others’ load.

Wow look at you now,
The Ten Thousand Islands.
Every cozy bay
a place to frolic, laugh and play.
‘Cause you stand up, out in the crowd,
The Ten Thousand Islands.
Archipelago
bathed in the sun’s warm glow.

Your history is long and fine.
For every generation there is time, time, time
to plant new seeds and watch them grow.
Each one inspires the Islands that we love and know.

Wow look at you now,
The Ten Thousand Islands.
Here at the Tiki bar
you’ll meet guests from near and far.
‘Cause you stand up, out in the crowd.
You are one in a million.
Beaches of white sand
surround each lovely land.

Wow look at you now,
The Ten Thousand Islands.
It’s such a joyful place
to drop one’s anchor down and stay.
‘Cause you stand up, out in the crowd,
The Ten Thousand Islands,
and come sun or snow,
long may our friendship grow.
