Island Hopping Dream


Words by Mark L Berry & Music by Nadia Cripps
Performed by Nadia Cripps and TC Elliott


Nadia Playing Piano I packed my bags
Left my winter coat
Went to find my wings
Left my folks a note
Bought a one-way pass
For S-J-U
Don’t know where I’ll end up
But before I am thru
I’m coming back as crew
I’m only coming back
When I wear wings too

TC Elliott The hardest part about any job is getting it
The hardest part of any dream is forgetting it
And if my dream takes longer than expected
And if it feels like I’m endlessly rejected
I’m gonna do what I have to do

So I became an airport rat
Begging to interview
Every pilot that
I ran into
Is your airline hiring?
I want to know
Who will be acquiring
More planes and grow?
I want to be an F-O
Co-piloto quiero yo

The hardest part about any job is getting it
The hardest part of any dream is forgetting it
And if my dream takes longer than expected
And if it feels like I’m endlessly rejected
I’m gonna do what I have to do

There are DC-3s
And Briton Norman Islanders
The Seaplane Shuttle
And DeHavilland Twin-Otters
Every island in the Caribbean
Is connected by air
But who needs another pilot?
I’ll take any job, I swear!

The hardest part about any job is getting it
The hardest part of any dream is forgetting it
And if my dream takes longer than expected
And if it feels like I’m endlessly rejected
I’m gonna do what I have to do
Still I’m gonna do what I have to do
