  • If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air
    Quaint little villages here and there
    (You're sure)You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod
    (Cape Cod, that old Cape Cod)

    If you like the taste of a lobster stew
    Served by a window with an ocean view
    (You're sure)You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

    Winding roads that seem to beckon you
    Miles of green beneath a sky of blue
    Church bells chimin' on a Sunday morn
    Remind you of the town where you were born

    If you spend an evening you'll want to stay
    Watching the moonlight on Cape Cod Bay
    You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod

    (aah, aah)

    If you spend an evening you'll want to stay (on Cape Cod Bay)
    Watching the moonlight on Cape Cod Bay
    You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod
    You're sure to fall in love
    You're sure to fall in love with old Cape Cod Writer/s: Alan Jeffreys, Claire Rothrock, Milton Yakus
