"Puerto Rico" as written by and Colin James Hay....
Lolita, standing on the corner
Such beauty in one so young
Her eyes stare, only for a moment
With the sun’s glare she is gone
It’s one world, one world to another
No warning of things to come
The splendour, one side of the picture
Only one glimpse, have to run

It’s okay down in Puerto Rico
All the people say, "We must come back here some day"
It’s okay down in Puerto Rico
Come what may, there’s always church on Sunday

It’s mid day, all the streets are quiet
People sleep through the hot day sun
With darkness, atmosphere’s appealing
The night holds promise of things to come

It’s okay being in Puerto Rico
As the people sway, we're slippin' into a new day
It’s okay being in Puerto Rico
If there’s a way, we’ll come back here some day



It’s one bar, then onto another
In the centre of old San Juan
Ten thousand people standing on the sidewalks
I drink with each and every one

It’s okay being in Puerto Rico
All the people say, "You must come back here some day"
It’s okay being in Puerto Rico
Come what may, there’s always church on Sunday

It’s okay being in Puerto Rico
As the people sway, we drink into the new day
It’s okay being in Puerto Rico
If there’s a way, we’ll come back here some day
