Back To The Island (Coconut Club Mix) Lyrics

by Baha Men

Come on
Yeah
Gotta Do it
Go Back to the Island Boy
Yeah, Yeah, yeah, yeah

Let's go

(Chorus)
Wake up early one mornin
kiss my mama good-bye
Going back to the island
i say don't worry mama don't cry

i'll be leaving on the hou'r's label
I sure hope that she's still able
Sow the seed around 5 o'clock
I'll stand at her bow and see the dark
Out in the field from dawn till dusk
Swimming in the blue hole is a must
That island where i was born
First thing I'll do is grow some corn

(Chorus)

I've been Cooking outside in the island pot
So young when I learn I haven't forgotten
how to catch them dark crabbas dey walkin
Old folks smokin pipes and talkin
Saturday night we gonna dance and sway
Shake my belly and do the Gongay
People don't you understand
live like a king and be a happy man

(Chorus)

Are you ready?
Yeah
How you gonna get there?
By Mail Boat

Are you ready?
Yeah
How you gonna get there?
By Mail Boat

You got to go down to Nassa
Go to il Lucia
Go to Canne island, ron key and Zuba
Go down to Free Port
Go to manwana
Go to Long island and ros inagua

Chorus

I got to go
I got to go
I got to go back to the island

Chorus

Junkanoo yeah x 4
