MY LITTLE ISLAND (4:06)

My Little Island - 1999

The sun drenched feeling of escapism, is revealed nicely in this lazy but charming tune. You can almost envisage Paul Young swigging a cocktail from a coconut as he sings.

Lyrics

Welcome to my little island
Though it's not much to look at I know
But it's somewhere to come
When things have slowed down
You can stretch out and let yourself go

Welcome to my little island Just relax get away from it all
When the people and crowds
Get too noisy and loud
You can slip out and over the wall
Just give my little island a call

When I came to my little island
Well I wasn't too certain at first
Far away from my friends
And the things I depend on

I guess I had feared for the worst
Now all my reservations reversed

Come on over to my little spot
Where it's never too cool and it's never too hot
You can dance on the beach
You can reach for the stars in the sky

Welcome to my little island
This is paradise you can't deny
And we all journey here
When we've conquered our fears
Are you willing to give it a try?
Then wave your little island goodbye

Come on over to my little spot
Where it's never too cool and it's never too hot
You can dance on the beach
You can reach for the stars in the sky
Welcome to my little island
