Back To The Island

(R. Butler / E. Rolle)
Originally performed by Baha Men
Lead Singer: Isaac



This station, rules the nation
Come on, come on, yeah
Here we go, go back to the island boy

Wake up early one morning
Kiss my mama goodbye
Goin' back to the island
Dont worry mama, don't cry

I'll be leaving on the island stable
I sure hope that she's still able
Goin' to sea around 5 o'clock
I'll stand at the bow and see the dock
Out in the fields from dawn till dusk
Swimmin' in the blue hole is a must
Back to the island where I was born
First thing I will do is grow some corn

(chorus)

Been cookin' outside in the iron pot
So young when I learned, I haven't forgot
I don't know where they're walking
Old folks smokin' pipes and talking
Saturday night we're gonna dance and sway
Shake my belly, do the dawn day
People don't you understand
Live like a king and be a happy man

(chorus)

"Are you ready? How ya goin' get there?" (Zac and Taylor)
"By mail boat" (Isaac)
"Are you ready?" How ya goin' get there?"
"By mail boat"

Go, go, go, go. . .

We got to go down to Nassau, go to New USA
Go to Cat Island, Long Key and X-zuba
Go down to Frequia go to New Guinea
Go to Long Island and Latina

(chorus)

I got to go, I got to go, I got to go back to the island
I got to go, I got to go, I got to go back to the island
I got to go back, I got to go back, I got to go back to the island
I got to go, I got to go, I got to go back to the island

(chorus)
