Lyrics

Going Caribbean
 
V1:  I work a forty-hour week on the twenty-seventh floor, monkey suit and a tie
      The bus rides crazy, boss is lazy, sometimes I wanna lay down and die
      Alimony’s late, bills are due, my cars broke down in the garage
      Overtime, under paid, and kissin’ ass so I can keep my job
                      
CH:  Say hey I wanna go down the island way
      Spend a little time in the sand
      Where the palm trees grow and the trade winds blow
      To the rhythm of a steel drum band
      A simple kind of livin’, a tropical religion of coconut oil and sun
      I’ll be a liberated man, workin’ on my tan, I’m goin’ Caribbean
                                 
V2:  I heard for two hundred dollars and a gold plated watch
      I could make it out to sea
      Floatin’ to an island on a cargo ship sounds first class to me
      Tendin’ bar for room and board, livin’ on the tips I earn
      Making lots of money servin’ Pina coladas and watchin’ the tourists burn
                      
CH:  Say hey I wanna go down the island way
      Spend a little time in the sand
      Where the palm trees grow and the trade winds blow
      To the rhythm of a steel drum band
      A simple kind of livin’, a tropical religion of coconut oil and sun
      I’ll be a liberated man, workin’ on my tan, I’m goin’ Caribbean
 
V3:  Bet there’s brown skinned beauties and college cuties
      Runnin’ all over da beaches        
      Businessmen in floral print shirts actin’ like human leaches
      When the tourists leave, I’ll take it slow
      Layin’ around in the sand
      Send a postcard home sayin’ don’t miss a thing I’m going Caribbean
                      
CH:  Say hey I wanna go down the island way
      Spend a little time in the sand
      Where the palm trees grow and the trade winds blow
      To the rhythm of a steel drum band
      A simple kind of livin’, a tropical religion of coconut oil and sun
      I’ll be a liberated man, workin’ on my tan, I’m goin’ Caribbean
      Going Caribbean,
      Going Caribbean ah-ha-ha!
