Lyrics

Hook:
I'm just a local boy from rota
can't stop making music this one's for you
love it here on Saipan music's in my right hand
I'll take it down and I'll put it on a track now

Feel the breeze and them coconut trees
on an island where I'm at in the middle of the sea
can't stop if you're climbin' on top
just another track getting ready to pop

Ain't no lie they'll be haters out there
hatin' on my music but who damn cares
there's no reason to be hatin' on me
ask somebody I'm nobody just me...

Hook(Repeat)

By the beach I'll be strumming my guitar
I'll be laying down tracks from the hood of my car
staring out at the golden sunset
living on an island is as good as it gets

Rasta Rap:
Me island boy me a want to try and come on in and understand a
Come on inside I want to try to take you for a ride a
ride a in the paradise I'll down you down slow
me just tell the people all the things they want to know

Hook(Repeat)

Instrumental

Me said me love me town in the blue ocean
me surrounded by the love all the people have shown
one day you should come and visit us
beautiful islands of the Marianas baby

Hook(Repeat)
