Lyrics

What if you and I were stranded on an island. We could leave everything and everyone behind. No one’s calling on the phone so we can walk on down the beach. Maybe climb a couple trees so we can grab something to eat. Much less stress and no more hassles. Swimming in the ocean and building sand castles. Getting all the sleep we’ll ever need at our sunny paradiso by the sea.
But even though they take more than they ever give. I suppose we eventually would miss the kids. So what if you and me and Jaden and the baby were stranded on an island. Stranded on a desert island.
Now it’s a couple of days in and I’m starting to get tired of working on the shelter and trying to make fire. Looking for water makes me so thirsty and Jay’s got the shakes cause we ain’t got no T.V. Need suntan lotion. Surrounded by the ocean. No more city state or federal raking the loot in. Looks like we’re home schooling. Need to go potty use your own hand-dug latrine. We can wipe our butts with leaves now we’re really going green. More and more I’m thinking of the people that we haven’t seen, like at work the band our friends and family.
And I know we eventually would miss the kids, even though they take more than they ever give. So what if you and me and Jaden and the baby were stranded on an island. Stranded on a desert island. Yeah what if you and me and Jaden and the baby and Joey Missy Bebe and their T.V. Construction plumbing gas and phone companies were stranded on an island. Grammy Poppy matches Tom and Marty. Mel Mar Melissa Steve Hunter and Johnny. Kenny the Chris’s and the whole Bridge community. A library groceries and electricity. Simon Ian Ryan Kayla Andrew Luka and Carina. Child care heath care and a couple of umbrellas. What if you and me and everybody were stranded on an island. Stranded on a desert island.
