A7 Dalt A7 D6 G/B A7+5 D6 Em7 F#m7 Em7 A sleepy lagoon, a tropical moon and two on an island; A7 Dalt A7 D6 G/B A7+5 B7 G/B D6 A sleepy lagoon and two hearts in tune in some lullabyland. Em7 A7 G/B A7 The fireflies' gleam reflects in the stream -- Em7 A7 G/B A7 They sparkle and shimmer. D D6 Cdim A star from on high falls out of the sky, Em7 A7 G/B A7 And slowly grows dimmer. A7 Dalt A7 D6 G/B The leaves from the trees all dance in the breeze A7+5 D6 Em7 F#m7 Em7 And float on the ripples; A7 Dalt A7 D6 G/B G6 We're deep in a spell as nightingales tell of roses and dew. Gm7 Gdim D F#7 G Gm7 The memory of this moment of love will haunt me forever -- Gdim D Cdim A A7+5 D A tropical moon, a sleepy lagoon and you.
