Elton John - "Island Girl Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

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 wanting with the white man's world
Island girl

He want to take you from the racket boss
Black boy want you in his island world

He want to save you but the cause is lost

Tell me what you wanting with the white man's world

Island girl, island girl, island girl

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 the mistake
