Michael Franks – Island Christmas lyrics

I don't want to smell those chestnuts roasting on an open fire
I can peel you a banana, if your heart desires

I want an island Christmas this year
I need an island Christmas this year

I want no more Christmas Carols counting birds up in pear trees
I want you to smear some sunscreen, all over me

I want an island Christmas this year
I need an island Christmas this year

Pack that see-through summer dress, you wore last summer
Just let me, kidnap you

Underneath the coco palms on Christmas morn
So slowly, I'll unwrap you

Pack that see-through summer dress, you wore last summer
Just let me, kidnap you

Underneath the coco palms on Christmas morn
So slowly, I'll unwrap you

Let's call up and buy those tickets
Quality not quantity
'Cause the greatest gift we have to give is you and me

We need an island Christmas this year
Let's have an island Christmas this year

We'll decorate a mango tree
And you can string some lights on me

No snow to shovel Christmas Day
We'll snorkle through a turquoise bay

While others plod through Jingle Bells
We'll roam the beach, collecting shells

I understand flannel pajamas
Are not allowed in the Bahamas

Handel's Messiah is far too long,
A repertoire for the steel drum
