Jimmy Buffett I Wish Lunch Could Last Forever Lyrics

Last updated:

I Wish Lunch Could Last Forever
By: Jimmy Buffett, Jay Oliver
1989
The place down the block, the one with no clock
Covert rendez-vous with you at the usual time
I savor the scent of the fish on the grill
Life's so spicy up on bar-b-q hill
Looking good, you look so fine
Waiter bring us one more bottle of wine

Chorus:
I wish lunch could last forever
Make the whole day on big afternoon
We'll begin with dessert a little coconut tart
Tastes as sweet as a piece of your heart
Cafe au lait beneath the Paris moon

Don't hide your eyes just wear your disguise
Brazil's in the air I swear it feels like Mardi Gras time
I savor the scent love that Annick Goutal
As we walk in time to the cathedral bells

Chorus:
I wish lunch could last forever
Make the whole day on big afternoon
We'll begin with dessert a little coconut tart
Tastes as sweet as a piece of your heart
Cafe au lait beneath the Paris moon

Oh yeah, Uh huh, Ooooh...

I wish love could last forever
Make the whole day a first time love affair
We'll begin with a kiss, such a warm place to start
Let me into your life let me into your heart
Mea culpa mea culpa carnival's in the air

We'll begin with a kiss, such a warm place to start
Let me into your life let me into your heart
I wish, I wish that lunch could last forever

Oh yeah, Uh huh, Oh, Oh...

-- Spoken:
"Tout la jour, mademoiselle [ Everyday, mademoiselle ]
Dejeuner tout la jour [ Lunch every day ]
Ah oui, une boutelle de vin blanc [ Ah yes, a bottle of white wine ]
Un dessert? C'est necessaire [ A dessert? It's necessary ... ]
Tres necessaire" [ ...very necessary ]
