Verse 1
What the sun already knows   
It's so (damn) dark at five or so    so so 
And really, what's with all this snow
It's got to go

This weather's really got me down                
As cabin fever makes the rounds
And thin ice is all around
On frozen ground

Chorus 1
I need to hop a jet that's headed south       
Doesn't matter window or the aisle              
Watch the frigid earth - gently fall below              
And set my watch to island time

Verse 2
What's up with meetings all day long
Where's the calm before the storm         
Why do I stay here
It's just wrong       

Chorus 2
Cancel my appointments put the business phone on hold  
I want to find a palm tree I can climb
Dance to reggae sipping rum drinks sweet and cold
And slip away to island time         

Verse 3
What the sun already knows   
The tropic heat it warms my soul              
I'm going to stay until I go  
This island makes me whole

Chorus 3 - steel drum solo

Chorus 4 
Seventh heaven's a/always legend on a sandy beach
There is simply nothing more sublime
Palm trees sway so easy - to the southern breeze             
I'm gonna stay on island time    

Chorus 5
I could be/will be legend on a crescent beach
This is where I know that I will find                     
Paradise is always here right within my reach
I'm gonna stay on island time
