So ‘say a little prayer’ that this ‘natural woman’ will be ‘sitting on the dock of the bay’ in a town near you! We know she will get your ‘respect’ and you’ll be ‘dancing in the street’ till at least the ‘midnight hour’ because as Lisa says ‘ain’t no mountain high enough’ to keep her from bringing the SOUL TRAIN to your station.
The temperature is perfect and the holiday crowds have gone, leaving the pristine beaches, uncrowded. In fact it is not unusual to find you have the beach all to yourself.
