Island Girl (Elton John)

Music by Elton John Lyrics by Bernie Taupin I see your teeth flash, Jamaican honey so sweet Down where Lexington cross 47th Street She's a big girl, she's standing six foot three Turning tricks for the dudes in the big city Island girl What you wantin' wid de white man's world Island girl Black boy want you in his island world He want to take you from the racket boss He want to save you but the cause is lost Island girl, island girl, island girl Tell me what you wantin' wid de white man's world She's black as coal but she burn like a fire And she wrap herself around you like a well worn tire You feel her nail scratch your back just like a rake He one more gone, he one more John who make a mistake
