Ceilin’ fan it stirs the air
Cigar smoke does swirl
The fragrance on the pillowcase
And he thinks about the girl…
Spillin’ wine and sharin’ good times
She sure could make him smile
He pays her well but what the hell
He’ll be movin’ in a little while
Havana daydreamin’
Boy he’s just dreamin’
His life away

“Havana Daydreaming” lyrics by Jimmy Buffett
