ISLAND WOMAN (Alice Simms) The Merrymen - 1970 Also recorded by: Andre Toussaint; Original Trinidad Steel Band. Oh, the fishin's good near your island That's why I've come back for more I saw you swim near my boat And I followed you back to the shore Island woman, island woman Making me forget who I am Island woman, island woman Making me forget who I am I forgot to sail back to market To sell me fish and get bait I forgot me wife and me children Forgot they soon will be dead (sic) Island woman, island woman Making me forget who I am Island woman, island woman Making me forget who I am Well, you danced for me in the moonlight We drunk a rum and had fun Ah, but when I woke in the daylight Oh, you'd taken me money and run Island woman, island woman Making me forget who I am Island woman, island woman Making me forget who I am Now me bucket is full of empty I'm back with my family Ah, but someday when I get money I'll be going back, you will see To my little island woman, island woman Making me forget who I am Island woman, island woman Making me forget who I am Island woman, island woman Island woman (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2006)
