I've got an island in the Pacific
And everything about it is terrific
I've 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

When I go swimming, I am always dressed in style
'Cause I go swimming wearing just a great, big, smile

My little island is 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

My little island is such a beauty,
You may forget to heed the call of duty
But if you give a slip to your ship, miss the trip....
Take a tip and blame
The occasional dame
