"The tea pot's talking, it's a shrill dispatch ..."

lyrics

Under The Island Sun

The tea pot's talking it's a shrill dispatch
bad weather and a train you don't want to catch
the kid's crying school's open and the train's on time
eat your breakfast baby school's open and the train's on time

Chorus:

Under the island sun
there we can all relax
the laundry is always done
we're never out of Apple Jacks
dance by the ocean
fill your basket with the coconut and the lime

Under the island sun
we never punch a clock
lot's of money and fun
you need some help
you just shout it down the block
eat your breakfast baby school's open and the train's on time

You drop her off on icy steps you go downtown
and wrestle with sales reps
for five minutes there your morning reverie was so sublime
eat your breakfast baby school's open and the train's on time

Chorus

So much to think about so many places to be
the crush and clamor for peace and serendipity
I see my child growing up I see the time we need
I see the sun on a billboard from a train going full speed

The snow is falling on paper palm trees
we can't go skating until the ponds freeze
don't cry baby school's open and the train's on time
don't cry baby school's open and the train's on time

Under the island sun
