It's a quarter to seven on a Saturday morning
I open my eyes after the Friday night
I don't worry about the rain upon my window
'Cos where I'm going I know the sun will always shine

So now I'm heading away down to Rio de Janeiro
I'll be leaving all my lonely times behind
And if I'm looking for love in Rio de Janeiro
There'll be someone there I know who'll find the time

In this golden place, there's a smiling face
I've got to find
And I won't have to wait too long
Before she's mine

My friends are telling me I'm chasing rainbows
Or searching for the gold beneath the sea
But rainbows only shine when it's been raining
And gold can never keep you company

So now I'm wonderin' what to say in conversation
To the lady of my dreams that I should meet
If I speak to her in the language of all nations
Then I'm sure that she'd be knocked right off her feet

And I know she will, then I'll love her till
The end of time
And I won't have to wait too long
Before she's mine

Do you know why I've to wait?

Well, I've been happy enough in Rio de Janeiro
I've got a woman here that I can call my own
It doesn't matter if I'm living here or there
'Cos she used to live next door to me back home

So if you're thinking that I've settled down forever
Well, I'll be telling you you've made a big mistake
'Cos I'll be heading away down to Denver, Colorado
There's a woman there I've got to try and make

She can fill the hole in my heart and soul
For a long, long time
And I won't have to wait too long
Before she's mine

You know I won't have to wait too long
But you know I won't have to wait too long
Don't you know I won't have to wait too long
I told you I won't have to wait too long

But you know I won't have to wait too long
But you know I won't have to wait too long
