Stuck on an island where the land is always green
A picture perfect movie scene
At the Oasis hidden by the Waipouli
I heard it calling out to me

Back on the mainland I can feel the uptempo
That races through the daily show
Trying to hold on to a fading after glow
That's playing through the radio

At the Oasis hidden over by the sea
I heard it calling out to me
For just a moment I could swear it almost seemed
Like I was back in Hawaii

Cheer me up, Mr. island DJ
I wanna hear some more bad Reggae
Give me a shot of your sweet plastic and plain
I wanna feel like I'm on vacation
I think I'm building a toleration
Every time that bad Reggae station plays

Bad reggae, wash away the purist in me
Bad reggae, take me back to Hawaii
Bad reggae
