Island goodbye, island goodbye
We been too long together, my island and i
'cross the blue sea, cross the blue sea
We been too long together, my island and me
Cobwebs and dust, cobwebs and dust
I hate to leave you but leave you i must
Float through the sky, float through the sky
We been too long together, my cobwebs and i

Unlock the gate, unlock the gate
Lower the drawbridge the hour is late
Whom shall it be, whom shall it be
We been too long together, my drawbridge and me

Troubles goodbye, troubles goodbye
We been too long together, my troubles and i
'cross the blue sea, cross the blue sea
We been too long together, my troubles and me

Cobwebs and dust, cobwebs and dust
I hate to leave you but leave you i must
Float through the sky, float through the sky
We been too long together, my cobwebs and i

Tear down the walls, tear down the walls
Gather my treasure and scatter it all
Whom shall it be, whom shall it be
We been too long together, my treasure and me

Kisses goodbye, kisses goodbye
We been too long together, my kisses and i
'cross the blue sea, cross the blue sea
We been too long together, her kisses and me

Cobwebs and dust, cobwebs and dust
I hate to leave you but leave you i must
Float through the sky, float through the sky
We been too long together, my cobwebs and i

Run to her side, run to her side
Run to my island and make her yer bride
Whom shall it be, whom shall it be
We been too long together, my island and me
