Well she could really drive me crazy so
She could bring me down but I don't want to know
But still I'm caught up by your pretty smile
Want to get close
But Tere's far away

I met her next to the golden place
For a moment there we stood face to face
The sun drew little line in the silver sea
Silversnakes like antique jewelry
Mesmerized when the lady blew a kiss to me
Tere smiled, dressed in black, making eyes at me
And funny shadows dancing on the wall as she walked by
Summer '88, somewhere in July

Well it seemed just an ordinary date to me
As we walked down the beach of the Spanish sea
I thought I heard a distant scream below the waterline
But when I turned to see Tere's silversnakes entwined

Embracing her she feels so real
And tracing her, but there's no image on the waterline
The passion in her eyes
I want to make it last for all time

Tere girl, Tere mine
She likes to keep away
But when the morning comes and the love is gone
She doesn't realize what she has done

Tere girl, Tere mine
I will always save the day
When she could really drive me crazy so
She could bring me down but I don't want to know
But I'm caught up by your pretty smile
Want to get close
But Tere's far away

Stormy evening Tere wasn't at the beach of aches
I asked some people "where's the girl with the silversnakes?"
But they just stared at me
One said "I have something to tell

"Tere died, April 13, twenty years ago
Drowned in the silver sea but one thing I don't know"
Remaining words were taken by the wind lost in the storm
I screamed "Her dying day was the day I was born!"

Embracing her, she feels so real
And tracing her, but there's no image on the waterline
The passion in her eyes
I want to make it last for all time

Tere girl, Tere mine
She likes to keep away
But when the morning comes and the love is gone
She doesn't realize what she has done

Tere girl, Tere mine
I will always save the day
When she could really drive me crazy so
She could bring me down but I don't want to know
But I'm caught up by your pretty smile
Want to get close
But Tere's far away

[Moresque intermezzo & Moorish Solo]

Embracing her, she feels so real
And tracing her, but there's no image on the waterline
The passion in her eyes
I want to make it last for all time

Tere girl, Tere mine
She likes to keep away
But when the morning comes and the love is gone
She doesn't realize what she has done

Tere girl, Tere mine
I will always save the day
When she could really drive me crazy so
She could bring me down but I don't want to know
But I'm caught up by your pretty smile
Want to get close
But Tere's far away
