Elton John Bernie Taupin
Rock of the Westies (1975)
I see your teeth flash
Jamaican honey so sweet
Down where Lexington cross 47th Street
She’s a big girl, she’s standing 6 ft. 3
Turning tricks for the dudes in the big city.
What you wantin’ wid de white man’s world
Black boy want you in his island world.
He want to take you from de racket Boss,
He want to save you but de cause is lost.
Island girl, island girl, island girl
Tell me what you wantin’ wid de white man’s world.
She’s black as coal
But she burn like a fire
And she wrap herself around you
Like a well worn tyre.
You feel her nail scratch your back just like a rake,
He one more gone, he one more john who make de mistake.
