Jackie Morris: Music

Miami

(Jackie Morris)

Mi – i – i – i – i – i – i – ami

Y’know I never knew

That your beaches were so balmy

Your water oh so blue

Thought you only were for snow birds

Rocking chairs along the street

But you got a flock of new birds

Rocking to a different beat.

 

CHORUS:

And they’re living it up, living it up in Miami

They’re building it up...building it up to the sky

They’re eating it up, drinking it down in Miami

You won’t find a bargain in all South Beach

But we can make believe it’s within our reach.....

 

Mi – i – i – i – i – i – i – ami

Art deco’s back alright!

Pastel colors in the sunshine

Neon fantasy at night. 

Music pouring from the cafes

Enjoy a cool mojito

Watch the woman with nine bracelets

Swat another darn mosquito.

 

CHORUS:

And they’re living it up, living it up in Miami

They’re building it up...building it up to the sky

They’re eating it up, drinking it down in Miami

You won’t find a bargain in all South Beach

But we can make believe it’s within our reach.....

 

BRIDGE:

Mi – i – i – i – i – i – i – ami

My – oh - miami

Mi – i – i – i – i – i – i – ami

You want the world to see

 

That when all is said and done

With your palm trees, sea and sun

You may be a little glitzy

You may be a little ritzy

You may be a little humid

But you’re sure a lot of fun!

 

Mi – i – i – i – i – i – i – ami

You’re sure a lot of fun.
