I see an island far away
Through my spyglass from distant shores,
Smooth white sands that beckon me
To dwell there forever more.
I board my ship and trim the sails
Trade winds bear me across the sea,
To bring me closer to mountains high
An island paradise, she yearns for me.
Closer I come under skies of blue
A paradise with palms of gold,
Into your arms, they welcome me
A beauty my eyes can scarcely hold.
My journey finished, I row to shore
I find your warmth that beckoned me,
Your Island Paradise that called my name
A castaway I shall forever be.
