"Isla de Encanta" as written by and Charles Thompson....
Hermanita ven conmigo (x2),
Hay aviones cada hora,

Isla del encanto,
Me voy! (x3)

Donde no hay sufrimiento (x2),
Me vieron pasar por la calle,
Isla del encanto,
Me voy! (x3)

Nuestro propio animal canta a la gente pa'gratis ,
Hey babe what are we doing here? .
Laaaaa,loooh,patria.
Isla del encanto,
Me voy! (x3)

Translation

Little sister come with me,
There are planes each hour,

Island of the enchantment,
I'm leaving!
Where there is no suffering,
They saw me pass by the street,
Island of the enchantment,
I'm leaving!

Our own animal sings for free for the people,
Hey babe what are we doing here?
Laaa loooh,fatherland.

Island of the enchantment,
I'm leaving!

    General CommentFrank Black was in San Juan, Puerto Rico for a while and that experience surfaced in a lot of his songs. This song is definitely about Puerto Rico. In fact, I was in San Juan last week, and was amused to see that on all the license plates was "Isla del encanto" I was like, hey! That's a Pixies song! And my friends had no idea of course. But a lot of Surfer Rosa comes from Frank's time in PR, as well in other songs. Crackity Jones is about his roommate.
