The Man plans to leave the wintry Northeast for a new, magical land.

Idealistic, optimistic - The Love Boat sails again!



It’s a place where summers never end.
Lovely ladies dance in the sea.
Skies are warm and anyone's your friend.
I know that there’s room there for me.

Sunday morning, the beach goes on and on.
The people wear flowers in their hair
And love is in the air.
Love is everywhere.


Where I'm from, it's quiet and unkind.
Silent figures slouch through the snow.
They don't seek the things they'll never find.
They know that there's nowhere to go.

Come with me. We'll drive across the land
Where life is a sweet as a song
And summer lasts all year.
Let me disappear.


Let me go where summer's always new.
The beach seems to reach to the sky.
Just get in.
We won’t even tell them goodbye.

Take me there!


from The Man from 1943, released July 12, 2016
