lyrics

There’s a boat at the docks in Miami
It sails at a quarter past nine
When it casts of from shore, you wont know what’s’ in store
Or the things that I’ve got on my mind

Watch the lights disappear on the skyline
As the boat sails away from the pier
Just a couple of hours, and a few whiskey sours
Before the island of Cuba is near

A daiquiri here, a daiquiri there
And then we’ll pause for a game of roulette
(come on, seventeen!)
Then we’ll cash in our chips and I’ll kiss your sweet lips
As we dance to a jazz quintet

We’ll be worlds away from our troubles
When we dine at Café By The Sea
With salted wind in your hair, we’ll begin our affair
Take the night boat to Havana with me
Take the night boat to Havana with me

At La Florida Bar, we’ll kiss under the stars
Then stroll to Hotel Nacional
(as Mr. & Mrs. Smith!)
Take a dip in the pool then well neck in the cool
On a bench in the Parque Central
`
We’ll watch the sun rise from the Prado
Underneath the cool shade of the trees
There’s romance and excess if you just acquiesce,
Take the night boat to Havana with me.
Take the night boat to Havana with me.

The Pornadoes Seattle, Washington

The Pornadoes formed in 2011 when Midwest transplants Jason Goessl, Tom Zgonc, and Ethan Sobotta were inspired to create music that embodied the spirit of their homeland. Goessl, the curator and musical director of the project, formed the group as a means to satisfy yet another diversion. The band’s blend of country western, jazz, and bluegrass flavorings bloom with refreshing cinematic qualities. ... more
