Lyrics: 

Cuban summer/Verano cubano (needs music)

It was a great Cuban summer,
one of those that would not end…
he a tourist – she: a stunner,
a sweet dream of forlorn men…

In previous lives he was a pirate,
looking for her, what is this tune?
rum took its toll,
and all of her, once that was „private“,
was revealed by him too soon

(Chorus)
Verano cubano…verano cubano…
time goes by soon…
life is just a short and magic tune…
verano cubano… verano cubano…
life is just a short and magic tune…

She was his queen of the good sins…
but they`d never meet again…
love´s transient just as footprints
in the Cuban hot, white sand…

All depends just on the perspective…
a magic summer made of fun…
and as they danced
he wondered who was more addictive?
the girl or was it the rum?

(Chorus)
Verano cubano…verano cubano…
time goes by soon…
life is just a short and magic tune…
verano cubano… verano cubano…
life is just a short and magic tune…

I really hope someone puts this to music - I'd love to hear it! Always good writes and engaging stories from you. My only comment if you're open to it is switching "owned" to something less... concerning. I wasn't sure if this was going in a dark direction and needed a content warning at that point. Maybe "uncovered"? "Revealed"?
