Music Monday: Sammy Hagar + UB40

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

Sammy Hagar and Friends – All We Need Is an Island and UB40 – Kingston Town

So I took a week off last week to show Cupid some love but now I’m right back into my wanting music to remind me of tropical island and warm weather. Sammy has the right idea in his song, all I need is an island… and then UB40 with a tribute to Jamaica. Didn’t actually get to visit Kingston when I went to Jamaica but instead went to Montego Bay at the opposite end of the island but hey, still tropical and warm. 🙂

Lyrics: 

Well, all we need is an island
Big ol’ sandy beach
Palm tree for some shade
Sweet sugar cane

All we need is an island (all we need is an island)
A hammock that swings
A tall cool one, a whole lotta sun
A belly full of rum

All we need is an island
Ooh, all we need is an island
All we need is an island

Get the cold-ass winter gone
So cold and so long
Feel it in my bones
All we need is an island (all we need is an island)

A little time alone
A feeling in me, you and me
A little ecstasy
All we need is an island

Ooh, all we need is an island
(All we need is an island)
All we need is an island

A line and a pole
Put me a pig in a hole
All we need is an island

Work, work, work away
Honey, take me to this paradise
With a miracle kiss
All we need is an island

Ooh, all we need is an island
(All we need is an island)
All we need is an island

(All we need is an island)
Ooh, all we need is an island
(All we need is an island)
All we need is an island

 

Lyrics: 

The night seems to fade
But the moonlight lingers on
There are wonders for everyone
The stars shine so bright
But they’re fading after dawn
There is magic in Kingston Town
Oh Kingston Town
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
And when I am king
Surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything, yeah
And now I am king
And my queen will come at dawn
She’ll be waiting in Kingston Town
Oh Kingston Town
The place I long to be
If I had the whole world
I would give it away
Just to see, the girls at play
Yeah
When I am king
Surely I would need a queen
And a palace and everything, yeah
And now I am king
And my queen will come at dawn
She’ll be waiting in Kingston Town
She’ll be waiting in Kingston Town
Right now
She’ll be waiting in Kingston Town
Oh yeah
She’ll be waiting in Kingston Town
