I see your teeth flash, Jamaican honey, so sweet
Down where Lexington cross 47th Street
She's a big girl, she's standin' six foot three
Turnin' tricks for the dudes in the big city

Island girl, what you wantin' with the white man's world?
Island girl, black boy wants you in his island world
He wants to take you from the racket boss
He wants to save you but the cause is lost

Island girl, island girl, island girl
Tell me what you're wantin' with the white man's world?

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

Island girl, what you wantin' with the white man's world?
Island girl, black boy wants you in his island world
He wants to take you from the racket boss
He wants to save you but the cause is lost

Island girl, island girl, island girl
Tell me what you're wantin' with the white man's world?

Island girl, what you wantin' with the white man's world?
Island girl, black boy wants you in his island world
He wants to take you from the racket boss
He wants to save you but the cause is lost

Island girl, island girl, island girl
Tell me what you're wantin' with the white man?
Tell me what you're wantin' with the white man?
Tell me what you're wantin' with the white man?
