"Island Hopping" as written by and Joe/schloss Strummer....
Chop down the cherry trees on Mango Street
That's the council for you every week
I'm just the kind of seafaring guy
Who waits for the tide and the town to get high
I don't like to do a drop of work
Drive in cab nor paint the church
It's been the same since I don't know when
So I'm going Island hopping again
Casper the suspicious ghost
He floats the cargo down the coast
But that's to risky for a man like me
Whose face is known in the territory
I'm like a fly in Harry's Bar
don't use my wings don't walk to far
It's been the same since I don't know when
So I'm going island hopping again
Been the same since I don't know when
But I'm going Island hopping again
Now papa Hemingway he rent this boat
With U.S bills I'm sure she'll float
And I ain't buying on the street
Gotta couple of merchants that I gotta meet
I'm waiting here for the firebell to ring
So I can watch somebody doing something
Its been the same since I don't know when
So I'm going Island hopping again
Been the same since I don't know when
But I'm going Island hopping again
