Got To Get Off The Island

     
 

Got to get off of the island

Got to get over the sea

Liviní with libertyís lady

No longer appeals to me

The people down here in the village

Are destined to complicate

They cover their eyes, ears, open their mouth

And talk about communicate

 

Got to get off got to get away

Got to get off get away

Got to get off of the island

Got to get off get away

 

Iím going to sail on a ship to Missouri

The woman awaiting me

She never learns not to worry

And Missouriís where I wish to be

So goodbye, farewell

Iím leaving my second home

Living the life of the outlaw

And winding up all alone

 

Got to get off got to get away

Got to get off get away

Got to get off of the island

Got to get off get away

 

Got to get off of the island

Got to get over the sea

Liviní with libertyís lady

No longer appeals to me

Got to get off got to get away

Got to get off get away

Got to get off of the island

Got to get off get away

 

Got to get off of the island
Get off get off get away
