Lyrics

Good morning!

It's a beautiful summer's day, what a day to revel outside!
What a perfectly lovely day to enjoy a bicycle ride!
We'll go together in tandem, pedal wherever we fancy,
I'm in the mood for sangria and just a little romance!

Beaches scattered with sparkling jew'ls, how I love the blue in your eyes
Let's go paddle in tidal pools while a heron graces the sky!
Wildflowers loving the sunshine save as we go on our way,
Look for a glen in the shade and watch all the boats in the bay!

O, what wonderful bliss, your strawberry kiss, sweet berry delight!
I've been missing those strawb'ry kisses all winter,
Waiting for sun to nurture my garden!

There's a beautiful view, got nothing to do but take it all in,
Orcas, out in the Sound where salmon abound, are splashing their fins.
Smiling in front of the camera, memories caught in the scenery,
Breathtaking views in their grandeur, Strawberry kisses till evening!

O, what wonderful bliss, your strawberry kiss, sweet berry delight!
I've been missing those strawb'ry kisses all winter,
Waiting for sun to nurture my garden!

It's a beautiful summer's day, what a day to revel outside!
What a perfectly lovely day to enjoy a bicycle ride!
We'll go together in tandem, pedal wherever we fancy,
I'm in the mood for sangria and just a little romance!
I'm in the mood for some Strawberry kisses, Mmmm!

Charming, fun and challenging!
Worth the effort if your group can handle the meter changes!
