Songs from MERLION

Music by Desmond Moey

 

ONE NIGHT OF MY LIFE

 

V1 We met on a beach by moon light,

where water embraces land,

and he swept my heart with passion,

like the sweep of billows on the sand.

V2. I drifted on waves of pleasure,

to lie with him by my side,

and we rocked upon the ocean,

to the rise and surging of the tide.

 

 Ch1  So I had my one night to remember,

then he was gone by the break of day,

 My one sweet love I'll always hold,

though all else should fade away.

 

Ch2 Dreaming of the one night I will cherish,

when his tender touch, turned my world to gold,

In his eyes I see a fire of love,

a flame that will not grow cold.

 

Br1. It will still endure, while the wind and sea

still repeat their one eternal song,

so this love held within my heart

will last a whole life long.

 

 C3 Dreaming of the one love I remember,

ev'ry time the moon rises on the sea,

oh the tides still ebb, the tides still flow,

 and he is always with me. 

 

 V3. And I hope one day I'll see him,

and once more he'll take my hand,

and we'll find one night together,

where the ocean reaches to the land.

 

c4. Dreaming of the one love I remember,

ev'ry time the moon rises on the sea,

oh the tides still ebb, the tides still flow,

 and he is always with me,

 

And the one night,

the one love of my life....

Merlene’s mother, Aquina Queen of the fishes, remembers how she met Leo the Lion King.

 

DANCE IN THE SUN

Music by Desmond Moey 

 

I frolic on the bay, I can prance and I can play, I'm speeding,

just see me run! [SHE RUNS SHE CAN RUN!]

 

I revel on the shore, I can swim and I can soar, on land and on sea

there's no one like me.

 

I will dance, I will dance in the sun! Like the ocean wave, I'll be free,

 and nothing gets in my way.

 

Light like a sun beam gleaming bright I will shine!

I want to dance, I want to dance, I'll dance in the sun!

 

ALL: SHE FROLICS ON THE BAY, SHE CAN PRANCE AND SHE CAN PLAY,

SHE'S SPEEDING, JUST SEE HER RUN! [M: I run I will run]

 

 

 

SHE REVELS ON THE SHORE, SHE CAN SWIM AND SHE CAN SOAR!

S: On land and on sea, there's no one like me!

 

I will dance (SHE WILL DANCE) I will dance (AND DANCE)

in the sun! (IN THE SUN!)

 

ALL: 

LIKE AN OCEAN WAVE THAT IS FREE,

AND NO ONE GETS IN HER WAY,

 

ALL:

LIGHT LIKE A SUN BEAM GLEAMING BRIGHT SHE WILL SHINE!

DANCE IN THE SUN, SHE'S HAVING FUN, DANCE IN THE SUN…!

SEE THE LIGHTS

Music by Desmond Moey

 

See the lights...!

Beauty surrounds us, sea of lights.

Colours so fancy, so cool yet so bright,

we dance through the night...,

 

Let's celebrate...!

Blue oceans, clear skies before us...,

Bask in the glory beneath, in the Sea....!

 

2.

Finny flight,

Gliding and swimming, what a ride....

Through stormy weather we just coast along,

singing our song....

 

We celebrate!

Hear all the joy bells go ringing,

feel all the pleasures of love, so we sing...!

 

 

3.

See the lights...!

Beauty surrounds us, Sea of lights.

Colours so fancy, so cool yet so bright,

we dance through the night...,

 

Come along! Hear all the joy bells go ringing,

feel all the pleasures of love, so we sing....!

 

See the lights, Let's celebrate! Sea of lights, Let's celebrate!

Finny flight, we celebrate!

We love the sea.... Celebrate...!
