VERSE 01: I'd like to try to fly some distance as quickly as I can/From civilized existence and try another plan/I'd like if I could do so to be another Caruso/Upon some island in the sea/yes, that is what would just suit meREFRAIN 01: Let's go and live upon a desert island/Where the isn't any worry, fuss, or care./We'd build some little wooden huts and feed on yams and coconuts/Oh we'd be happy there./We would listen with elation the the parrots' conversation/when they've anything of interest to say/And at night we'd lie at rest with a scorpion on our chest/In our little dessert island far awayREFRAIN 02: Let's go and live upon a desert island/Where the isn't any worry, fuss, or care./We'd loaf around and dress in beads and learn to love the centipedes/And they would all love us./With the snake that goes awriggling on its tummy we'd be chummy/We'd grow fonder of the monkeys everyday/And some local shark we'd get for a nice domestic pet/In our little dessert island far away.VERSE 02:Each morning on awaking I'd go and light the fire/And breafruit I'd start baking as much as we require/I'd chase a goat and catch it/And bean it with my hatchet/And if you let it get away/why that would be our meatless day.
