Walking along the beach last night
Who do you think I spy?
A girl with ebony fire eyes
Soft and low do she cry

Now what could be such a source of pain?
I so boldly inquire
Pointing finger Havana way
These three words which transpire

She told me that only in Miami
Is Cuba so far away
Only in Miami
My story, she goes this way

Fish may fly through the purple keys
Golden birds take to air
I am bound to the earth, it seems
My life can be so unfair

Only in Miami
Is Cuba so far away
Only in Miami
Is Cuba so far away

Standing on the shoreline waiting
Everyone anticipating
I can hear the broken hearted say

"Only in Miami
Is Cuba so far away"

And she cries for her child without a mother
And she cries for her son without a father
And she cries for herself without a lover
Can't face another day, chase the blues away

I thought I heard her mumble as she
Turned away

Only in Miami
Is Cuba so far away
Only in Miami
Is Cuba so far away

Standing on the shoreline waiting
Everyone anticipating
I can hear the broken hearted say

"Only in Miami
Is Cuba so far away
Only in Miami
Is Cuba so far away"
