Song Lyrics

Booked passage on an oceanliner
Went out on the sea
Sat at the captain’s table
She was seated next to me
She brushed my arm discretely
With the pearls around her neck
She looked like Rita Hayworth
And I look hurt black silk dress

We went up to her cabin
And laughed the whole night through
Over champagne and jet planes
And hearts and cars broken into

Having a wonderful time, wish you were her

I traveled to the south of France
Checked into a pink hotel
She was standing by the croupier
The dice were in her spell
I stake my whole fortune
On a hand that beggars out
She moved around to hand the bank
And she brought me luck

We got into her fast car
And sped into the night
Watched the sun come up over
Saint Paul Divine

Having a wonderful time, wish you were her

I set sail for Egypt
Great pyramids
Crawled inside the darkness
To where the pharoahs live
Walked out into the evening
She was bathing in the Nile
She took me to a caravan
Where she danced around the fire

I’ve never been so happy
To be so miserable
I try to forget you
But I can’t run fast enough

Having a wonderful time, wish you were her
Having a wonderful time, wish you were her
Wish you were her
Wish you were her
Wish you were her
