Song Description

I TRIED TO WRITE THIS SONG IN THE TRADITION OF HARRY BELAFONTE. THIS ISLAND SOUND HAS BECOME MORE AND MORE POPULAR THESE DAYS, ESPECIALLY IN COUNTRY MUSIC.

Story Behind the Song

A FORMER NORTHERNER FINDS OUT THAT LIFE IN THE ISLANDS IS NOT THE EASY LIFE IT APPEARS TO BE

Broadjam Member Reviews

fun tune, though a bit corny. like the allusion to the tropical tributes from the "stars." yeah, i got it...

    - Warren Hein

I heard the water lapping first off, made me want to hit the beaches go on vacation, love your harmony, loved the Harry part first heard that when I was 12 made my moth buy his album, it just topped off a fun song.

    - Delta Burnett Reed
Lyrics

I was gonna make a fortune
singing songs about the sea
Sold my ticket on the boat back home
to live that island dream
Now the tourists
in the tiki bars
are dreaming tropically
and I want to sail a skiff back home
to find reality
-----chorus----
(but) i already missed 'dat boat
already missed 'dat boat
already missed 'dat boat

Now i play for tips and cocktails
wish i had something to eat
I want to hop a steamer back to find some sanity
and the tourists
in the tiki bars
can't see the poverty
of the shipwrecked
and forgotten in this
prison by the sea
---chorus----
Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville
seems like the place to be
Sip Sangria wine with Jerry Jeff
on some secluded beach
This Calypso blurs your senses
pulls you into fantasy
Steel Drums and guitar pickin'
drowning out the misery
Bob Marley's reggae music
even Kenny Chesney
no the secret Island tropic rhythm
to fuel your tiki dreams
Even Harry Belafonte
who sang so mournfully
Day oh
Day oh
Daylight come and me want go home
Day oh
Day oh
Daylight come and me want go home
