While we float on this mortal sea
We wear our colours so heroically
Were only living on G and T
Everyone else is just a refugee 
Ah I wake up, I'll take up
It's about time for a shake up
When pride is blind you know
We're only stuck in second gear
So wrap up, never give up
It's about time to deliver
Without the man who drives you 
You know I'm staying in 

[Chorus:]
Were on an island in the sea
Were on and island we never leave [Repeat: x1]

Well we feel subsequent resent
And overseas we like to represent
Cause nothing but embarrassment
We had nothing but our good intent 

Ah I wake up, I'll take up
It's about time for a shake up
I'm talking loud, that doesn't mean
You can't be understood
So wrap up, never give up
It's about time to deliver
I think it's about time
We got to meet the neighborhood 

[Chorus]
Were on an island in the sea
Were on and island we never leave [Repeat: x3]
