They say no man's an island No man can stand alone I don't wanna be an island I just wanna live on one They say the grass is always greener In someone else's yard I don't care 'bout your pasture I just wanna follow my heart Back to the islands Where the right winds are blowin' Back to the islands Where the rum is always flowin' They say you gotta take a little bad To go with all that good Well if your life makes you sad Get out of that neighborhood They say what's worth doing is worth doing right Well if you ain't smiling Pack your things and leave tonight Back to the islands Where the right winds are blowin' Back to the islands Where the rum is always flowin' Who cares what they say anyway? It's your life, might as well live it your way

It's always summer in my heart It's always time to dream of you I should be looking at this here flow chart I'd rather be sailing on the ocean blue It's always sunny in my dreams It's always time to sail across the world I don't wanna be on tiger teams I just wanna sail, me and my girl There's a lighthouse shining bright There's the bob of the waves for you and me tonight There's a love I see in your eyes There's the feel of my fingers coming up your thighs It's always flip flop weather in my soul It's always time to love and smile There's always happiness left in a fruit punch bowl Honey let's close our eyes and hug for a while There's a lighthouse shining bright There's the bob of the waves for you and me tonight There's a love I see in your eyes There's the feel of my fingers coming up your thighs It's always summer in my heart It's always time to dream of you I should be looking at this here flow chart I'd rather be sailing on the ocean blue

Dreaming of you with a flower in your hair Thinking of you on an island somewhere You're wearing a thong And nothing's wrong it's true You're wearing a thong And nothing's wrong With the view Thinking of you with a smile of your face Dreaming of you and your warm embrace We'll be up all night Til the first morning light it's true We'll be up all night Til the first morning light Me and you You say you love me, you can't wait to show me You wanna hold me till we're both lost at sea Dreaming of you fast asleep in my bed Thinking of what doesn't need to be said The look in your eyes Says there'll never be lies It's true The look in your eyes Says there'll never be lies tween me and you

I don't wanna live my life in your no wake zone I don't wanna live it tethered to a damn cell phone And if I gotta go through Hell I'll go ring the Devil's bell And ask him to please leave me alone I don't wanna live my life worried to the bone I don't want the kind of life where all fun is postponed I know you got somethin' to sell Please be kind, bid me farewell I ask you, please leave me alone I want to sail away to parts unknown I don't need riches, I don't need a throne I need her by my side As we look down at the tide Come on baby let's go be alone And I don't wanna live a life that is not my own And I don't want a heart so hard it might turn to stone I know you think the mall is swell But I need less noise can't you tell So please, leave me alone Your hand in my hand Our feet on the sand Look in my heart We'll draw our own chart I want to sail away to parts unknown I don't need riches, I don't need a throne I need you by my side As we look down at the tide Come on baby let's go be alone

I grew up in the city waiting for the sky to fall My life, what a pity, had nothing tropical I lived for the day when I would sail away And leave behind this tired world of gray I grew up in a world where boring is the norm Where wishing for an island is a local art form But yesterday I dropped anchor in the bay And tonight I'm dancing, watching your hips sway Looks like I made it my friends Don't feel bad for me ever again The rum and the good times erased the pain Looks like I made it my friends I live on a beach that takes my breath away The sun invites me to nap and to play At sun down we get together and pray So much to be thankful for, I must say Looks like I made it my friends Don't feel bad for me ever again The rum and the good times erased the pain Looks like I made it my friends

Love me a beer when the weather gets hot Love me a beer when the weather gets cold Love me a beer... man it never gets old Love me a beer right after a shot Love me a beer after my Cuervo gold Love me a beer... man it never gets old Love my beer from near and far Love my beer straight from a mason jar Love me a beer... man it never gets old Love me a beer in the pubs of old Love me a beer wherever it's sold Love me a beer... man it never gets old I love me a beer where the hops are bold I love me a beer that helps the evening unfold Love me a beer... man it never gets old

G Bm They say life's a beach w a bottle of rum Am D I hope they ain't listening - I don't want them all to come G Bm They say life in the islands is paradise Am D I hope I don't see the day when paradise dies C G So all you on the mainland stay where you are Am D Don't come overcrowd my tiki bar They say be your own island right where you stand Close your eyes and feel your toes in the sand Can you picture it in your mind's eye No need to come here no plane fare to buy So all you on the mainland stay where you are Don't come overcrowd my tiki bar Em C First come the good intentions G D Then they pour new foundations Em C Then they want to turn a profit G D They don't care bout the islands one little bit

I put some smell good on my pecker Cause I hope to see her later And I hope she'll ask me in That girl is my kind of forever I just wanna be together That's why I'm wearing this goofy grin And if I play my cards just right You know I just might... ... spend the night I put some shiny on my clever I really want to impress her I need tonight to be full of win If she says music is the answer I'll pretend to be a dancer And offer to take her for a spin And if I play my cards just right You know I just might... ... spend the night Can't think of anybody other My heart is beating all aflutter I'm dying to taste her skin I just want now to be much later When I know what makes her purr And our life together can begin
