Whacky Wednesday - Make me an Island

Reactions: 
Reminds me of a song sung by Joe Dolan... I found it on Hyscience talk about stubborn!

"The villa owner refuses to move, so the real-estate developer has had to dig out all around it to force him to,"

MAKE ME AN ISLAND
- A. Hammond & M. Hazlewood
Different eyes, different size, different girls every day.
Different names, different games took my breath clean away.
But I'm changed, rearranged, I'm enlightened and how
you have caught me, you have taught me and I'm different now.
Take me and break me and close all your windows and doors.
Shut me off, cut me off, make me an island, I'm yours.
Take me away from the world, take me away from the girls.
Take me and break me and make me an island, I'm yours.
Running round, shifting ground, that's the life I have seen.
But I'm tired, uninspired and I've wiped my slate clean.
You are mine, I am yours if the Lord will allow.
You have caught me, you have taught me and I'm different now.
Take me and break me and close all your windows and doors.
Shut me off, cut me off, make me an island, I'm yours.
Take me away from the world, take me away from the girls.
Take me and break me and make me an island, I'm yours.
Take me and break me and close all your windows and doors.
Shut me off, cut me off, make me an island, I'm yours.
Take me away from the world, take me away from the girls.
Take me and break me and make me an island, I'm yours.
Take me and break me and make me an island, I'm yours.
Albert Hammond, who I discoverd was born in England and not in the USA by the way, is probably one of the most prolific songwriters of the pop/rock era with Mike hazelwood. Having written hits for many stars and groups like the Hollies... "Gimme dat ding" sung by the Pipkins was also one of theirs! Amazing...

"And there was a beautiful view

But nobody could see.
Cause everybody on the island
Was saying: Look at me! Look at me!"
Laurie Anderson, Language Is A Virus
