Back To The Islands

Just because we come from the islands

doesn’t mean we’re far away from home
Where my people are free and feeling happy
that’s the place we really want to be

Just because we come from Samoa
doesn’t mean we don’t rock and roll
Come on down and join in the party
cause Baby, I’m feeling really mighty

Look around you, tell me what do you see?
The city lights, made for you and me
Get yourself together
Never mind the weather

Do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do, do do do
Do do do do, do do do do do
Do do do do, do do do

Look around you, tell me what do you see?
The city lights, made for you and me
Get yourself together
Never mind the weather

Just because you come from the city
Everything’s OK and looking pretty
But you’ll never take me away
cause I’m going home, I’m gonna stay

Look around you, tell me what do you see?
The city lights, made for you and me
Get yourself together
Never mind the weather

(Instrumental)

Look around you, tell me what do you see?
The city lights, made for you and me
Get yourself together
Never mind the weather

Do do do do, do do do
Do do do do, do do do
Do do do do, do do do (hey, hey, hey)
Do do do do, do do do (hey, hey, hey)
