I'll be the madness that carries you away
I'll be the sadness to light your darkest day
I'll be the desert island where you can be free
I'll be the vulture you can catch and eat

Desert island
Love is all around
Desert island
Where you can laugh aloud
Desert island
Everywhere's a beach
Your desert island
Is what I wanna be

We'll develop muscles
From cracking coconuts
Let our clothing drop off
Feel each other's butts
Start a better country
Where we can get things done
Make a fortune turning
Sand to silicon

Desert island
Love is all around
Desert island
Where you can laugh aloud
Desert island
Everywhere's a beach
Your desert island
Is where I wanna be

While we're still holding on
Counting days until we're gone
Can we spend some time alone
In our free love zone

Desert island...
