Jeri Southern – An Occasional Man lyrics

I got an island
In the Pacific
And everything about it
Is terrific

I got the sun to tan me
Palms to fan me
And
An occasional man

I love my island
It's very lazy
If I should ever leave it
I'd be crazy

I've got papayas,
Peaches,
Sandy beaches, and
An occasional man

[Chorus:]
When I go swimmin
I am always dressed in style
'Cause I go swimmin
Wearin' just a great big smile

My little island
Was made for pleasure
And in the cool of evening
It's a treasure

And when the hour grows later
What is greater than
An occasional man

[Repeat chorus]

My little island
Is such a beauty
You may forget
To hear the call of duty

But if you give a slip
To your ship,
Miss the trip,
Take a tip and blame
An occasional day
