Winner Stan Geberer “One More Florida Song”

(Audio unavailable but see lyrics below)

ONE MORE FLORIDA SONG By Stan Geberer

Orange blossoms in the spring, Made many singers sing
Everglades in the fall, Summer rains made the sawgrass tall

Who’s gonna sing about the Florida Sand, When all those singers no longer can

Who’s gonna write one more Florida Song, One where everybody wants to sing along…oh…

And if those singers were still here, Maybe they’d sing about the small key deer
Or sing about Florida’s whispy sky, In the winter with the clouds so high

Who’s gonna write one more Florida song, Who’s gonna write one more Florida song

Or maybe they’d sing time is so short, How to save God’s earth you got to go to court
And how it seems we can hardly win, But their songs made us try again and again

Who’s gonna write one more Florida song, One where everybody wants to sing along

Now the sky is a wintery blue, Over the pines and the cypress too
And a new song in the air so still, Sing it for ‘em if you will

Lets sing about the Florida sand, Lets sing about it while we can
Lets sing one more Florida song, Now everybody sing along

Lets sing one more Florida song, One more Florida song
