Island woman, island woman
You making me forget who I am
Island woman making forget who I am.

De fishing good near your island
That's why I come back for more
I saw you swim near my boat
And I followed you back to shore.

refrain
Island woman making forget who I am
Island woman making forget who I am.

You dance for me in the moonlight
Drink de rum and have fun
When I wake in d'daylight
You take me money and run.

I'm back with my family
Someday when I get money
I comin' back, you will see
