Tomorrow late I'll buy the Indian lovers' spice
From the Spice Islands
From the Spice Islands


Does it start like that?

There's a song called Spice Islands by a New Zealand group named Goldenhorse. Is that what you are looking for? Lyrics here:

If not, where did you hear it?   Can you quote a few distinctive phrases? Is it new or old?

Grenada may be that Spice Island you are looking for - (video with lyrics)

http://youtu.be/kjLr8Dn16gI?list=RDkjLr8Dn16gI


Summer Time, come on 
To the isle of spice, lets go
Summer Time, come on 
In the isle of spice, lets go

Buckle up, take that trip 
Go Grenada for the summer time
Play ah mas, drink some rum
Smell some spice and free up your mind
A gem in the Caribbean so unique
Scenery to sweep you off your feet
Friendliness people you'll ever meet
Great food and calypso music
Time of your life surely guarantee
We got ladies, sexy ladies, gorgeous ladies
All so fine
Got bum bum like zoom zoom
Good waistline, oh how dey could wine
See ah somebody in ah tight outfit
In ah club stay so feet of the beat
Spicyest woman you'll ever meet
There eh no doubt about it
Can't resist my Grenadian baby 

When its Summer Time, come on 
To the isle of spice, lets go
Summer Time, come on 
In the isle of spice, lets go

Festival over, this chick from Venezuela
Say she want to stay 
[Spanish]
Just one dip in the sulphur stream 
Love the Jab Jab make 
that give her the scream
- is the island of our dream
She love the ice cold and green
Say she want a Grenadian man 

When its Summer Time, come on 
To the isle of spice, lets go
Summer Time, come on 
In the isle of spice, lets go

Gda Music, thanks for the lyrics, whether it is the song wanted by Guest or not. Did you get them from the singing, or is there a print source?

Thank goodness for the cassette tape machine. The repetitious and constant replay of certain words/phrases is the essential tool when hopefully deciphering at least some of the more obscure parts of any lyric. In this case I just pasted the Spice Island lyric thereby taking the easy way out to print my own copy for reference.

Hello everyone, sorry haven't been on here for a while. I have been on holiday and busy with work. The spice island I'm looking for is a shanty. I've heard a crew called Short Drag Roger.

I've just sat and listened to it and wrote it down. just in case anyone else wants to learn it

SPICE ISLAND

I'm a merchant man east India line
Oh way hay oh haul away
Sail the roaring seas to where the weather its fine
Oh haul away for the company
We're the finest crew ever seen onboard
Oh way hay oh haul away
We knows how to sail her and use a sword
Oh haul away for the company

Spice island I'm bound away
Time will pass a year and a day
Afore I'll see spice island or Portsmouth town

Mr lindergren he declares to me
I pays you more than the ruddy navy
And me ships are fast gunned to the teeth
Send many a frenchie to his lasting grief

In Singapore where the yellow girls smile
Then I'll wait the company's ship a while
I'll catch me a rig to a canton town
I'll take me pay and have a walk around

Off the African coast ha the pirates sea
Well they aint no match for the bombay marine
Through the spanish maine she's homeward bound
We'll taste the air boys in Portsmouth town

Spice island I'm bound away
Time will pass a year and a day
Afore I'll see spice island or Portsmouth town
