Lyrics:
1st Verse
I think I’ve got a touch of island fever
I do believe I feel a bit sauted
This morning I was just some non-believer
Tonight I feel I’ve joined a wild crusade

/ 2nd Verse
I never thought of life as being breezy
I never thought of time as time to play
I never thought that I could take it easy
But all those feelings changed for me today

/ Chorus
Layers and layers of spices and flavours
Are finding their way to my brain
Layers and layers of costumes and players
That make my whole life look insane

/ Bridge
Palm trees and views I can’t believe
Why would I ever want to leave?

/ 3rd Verse
I want to take my shoes off and go walking
Down beside the Caribbean Sea
I like the funny sounds of parrots squawking
I think I hear a hammock calling me

/ Chorus
Layers and layers of spices and flavours
Could this be some kind of charade
Layers and layers of costumes and players
I think I will join the parade

/
Layers and layers of spices and flavours
Could this be some kind of charade
Layers and layers of costumes and players
I think I will join the parade

/ Tag
I think I’ve got a touch of island fever
