There ain't no map to ecstacy
You read romance by storm
Shipwrecked with sails all torn, baby
There ain't no captain's call before you fall
Oh you will not be warned
Til on maelstrom wings you're born, baby
And then your heart will bloom
You'll croon love's tune
That sweet typhoon
Left you marooned in paradise
A happy castaway will be rescued soon
And you know that will be your doom

Because you'll pay for your day at Pleasure Island, baby
For love is grand until it ends
And then your heart will be broken
That ride costs a token
You'll foot the bill for every thrill
I promise that each caress
Each moments passion
Is another check the bank will soon be cashing

Oh love isn't blind, just short-sighted
Get sick on champagne and all those dangled karots
Never to fall again, dear
Baby, please what fool would dare it?
Not me I ain't no sucker
Though they're born every minute
Kids today can't live without their pleasures
Oh yeah I learned that sword's a double-edger
Oh man I'm in debt to a girl I can't forget
I pray for love rekindled
But I know it's just another swindle

I paid for my day at Pleasure Island yeah
Seduced by land now I can't stand the way it feels
But when I remember ephemeral affairs
Well I must admit I got quite a deal
