Back to the island

(Baha Men)

This station…rules the nation!
Yeah, yeah, yeah go back to the island boy

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

Everybody
We’re livin’ on the island stable
I sure hope that she’s still able
To go to the sea around 5 o’clock
I’ll stand at the bow and see the dock
Out in the fields from dawn ’til dusk
Swimmin’ in the blue hole is a must
That island where I was born
First thing I will do is grown some corn

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

We’re cooking outside the island park
I was young when I learned I haven’t forgot
Old folks smoking pipe and talking
Saturday night we’re gonna dance and sway
Shake my belly, do that all day
People don’t you understand
Live like a king and be a happy man

Wake up early one morning
Kiss my mama goodbye
Goin’ back to the island
Said don’t worry mama, don’t cry
Go back to the Island, boy
Are you ready?
How you gonna get there?
I made a boat
Are you ready?
How you gonna get there?
I made a boat

A boat, a boat, a boat, a boat
A boat, a boat, a boat, a boat
A boat, a boat, a boat, a boat
A boat, a boat, a boat, a boat

We got to go to Nassau
Go to Noussa
Go to Cat Island want to be Exuba
Go down to Fregua
Go to Niguana
Go to Long Island
And then Ratingua

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

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, 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

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