Island Girl
I see your teeth flash, Jamaican honey so sweet
Down where Lexington crossed 47th Street
Oh, she's a big girl, she's standing six foot three
Turning tricks for the dudes in the big city

Island girl, what you wanted with your white man's world
Island girl, black boy want you in his island world
He want to take you from the racket boss
He want to save you but the cause is lost
Island girl, island girl, island girl
Tell me what you wanted with the white man's world

Well she's black as coal but she burn like a fire
And she wrap herself around you like a well worn tire
You feel her nail scratch your back just like a rake, oh
He one more gone, he one more John who make the mistake

Island girl, what you wanted with your white man's world
Island girl, black boy want you in his island world
He want to take you from the racket boss
He want to save you but the cause is lost
Island girl, island girl, island girl
Tell me what you wanted with the white man's world

Island girl, what you wanted with your white man's world
Island girl, black boy want you in his island world
He want to take you from the racket boss
He want to save you but the cause is lost
Island girl, island girl, island girl
Tell me what you wanted with the white man
Tell me what you wanted with the white man
Tell me what you wanted with your white man
