 Pretty Little Island
  

Pretty Little Island

When this old world starts bringing me down and I lie awake
And the four strong winds blow hard
I hear a little rustle in the palm trees and the tide breaks

     On a pretty little island, a floating island far away
     A trippy little island, I know you’re smilin’
     But I’ll spend my days in the sun on a pretty little island

I can’t keep track of trouble, so never mind me
If I don’t have much to say
Headlines and bad news don’t find me

     On my pretty little island, a floating island far away
     A crazy little island, you can go on smilin’
     But I’ll spend my days in the sun on a pretty little island

          I’m alone at last, I don’t even miss my past
          Got a boat tied down by the breaking waves
          I’m on the other side, and I’m fit to be untied

          Where the coconut’s sweet, and the mangoes many
          Free beach doesn’t cost a penny
          No clothes, you don’t need any

I was thinking, maybe you’ve got that notion
To come by this peace inside
So get on your boat and sail it over the ocean

     To a pretty little island, a floating island far away
     A crazy little island, I’ll keep you smilin’
     We’ll spend our days in the sun

     You’ll know for sure that I’m the only one
     I’ll make you feel at home when the day is done
     On a pretty little island
