Island Dream

Like an emerald in the water
Like a pearl in the sea
Puerto Rico is a dream
An Island dream

A magical place
Were serenading coquis
sing Puerto Rico's lullaby
from dusk till dawn

The beautiful palm trees
Greet you through the day
With their waving fronds
Like fans in mid air

And the cool breezes
of the Caribbean waters
With their splendid rolling waves
Entice you to their waters
A refreshing vacation from reality

Turn around to see
the majestic mountain
The rain forest calls your name
The mysterious fog
hovers over the summit
It's the home of the God Yuquiyu
