My last song for FAWM 2020!
We took a vacation in January to Key West, so I wanted to commemorate it. It was lovely and I'd go back in a minute!
What’s 90 miles from Havana?
And no, this isn’t a test
It’s the closest thing to heaven
The island known as Key West
A hop, skip and jump from Miami
Down the overseas highway
You can snorkel the coral reefs
And watch all the dolphins play
Sunsets are stunning – the rum is running
The palm trees have lots of sway
Warm breezes are blowing – mojitos are flowing
It’s so intoxicating!
Papa Hemingway’s where it’s at
With his polydactyl cats
And you can go see where Harry (Truman that is)
Played poker and made merry
Hail to the Conch Republic
Duval is where you want to be
Margaritas at Sloppy Joe’s
Take a bus ride down the street
Sailboat excursions – Kayak diversions
The chickens are everywhere
Even at Mallory Square
Plenty of wild life – plenty of night life
Don’t forget to eat some Key Lime Pie!
