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

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
Then they pour new foundations
Em C
Then they want to turn a profit
They don't care bout the islands one little bit
