If This Isn't Heaven (I Think It Will Do)

I wake up each morning with a song in my mind,
And I'm always so eager to rise and shine;
I look at the ocean playing tag with the shore,
And I know that I've come home forever more.

I left the big city and the bright lights behind,
The freeways and neon — I almost went blind;
So I packed my belongings
and I came back to you,
Now if this isn't heaven I think it will do.

If this isn't heaven it's sweet and it's true,
Oh, dear ol' Placentia my heart goes with you;
May I wander your meadows
my whole life through,
And if this isn't heaven I think it will do.

Now, I don't earn the dollars
that I did years gone by,
But you don't need a fortune
to be happy and thrive;
For there's more things to heaven
than a dollar or two,
Now if this isn't heaven I think it will do.

I've got me a good wife
and my friends old and new,
And I know when I need them
they'll always come through;
I've got the mountains and valleys
and the lifestyle I choose,
And if this isn't heaven I think it will do.

If this isn't heaven it's sweet and it's true,
Oh, dear ol' Placentia my heart goes with you;
May I wander your meadows
my whole life through,
And if this isn't heaven I think it will do.
And if this isn't heaven I think it will do.
