Come and listen to my story 'bout some island girls,
The kind in flipflops, never wearin' heels and pearls.
They kicked one builder right off their pretty isle
And did it with the locals in an island style.
Scandal, that is. Group gossip. Drinks and friends.
Well, the next thing you know, the girls are in the news.
A video chick who looks past the sex and booze.
She gets the tale about defeating sleazy men
And gains solidarity with these island hens.
Women, that is. Island life. Fish-Eye Lens.
