And the Women

Words and Music by Bruce Kula

I love it on the islands, got the bougainvillea vine
got the coconut palm
got the sweet red wine
and the women
and the women
I love it on the islands and I love the island livin'
but I'd never come back if it wasn't for the women

I love it on the islands, got the sugar cane fields
got the mangos and bananas
got the Caribbean Sea
and the women
and the women
I love it on the islands and I love the island livin'
but I'd never come back if it wasn't for the women

Wavy, curly, straight-haired
Semi-naked, dressed, bare
Big, small, short, tall, dark, light, black, white
Rich, poor, less, more, bittersweet, mixed, neat
It's all a pointless silly quibbling matter to me
if they're women
ah they're women

I love it on the islands got the sweet dark rum
got the black sand beaches
got the white hot sun
and the women
and the women
I love it on the islands and I love the island livin'
but I'd never come back if it wasn't for the women

I love it on the islands, got the bougainvillea vine
got the coconut palm
got the sweet red wine
and the women
and the women
I love it on the islands and I love the island livin'
but you never catch me back there if it wasn't for the women
