Here comes a couple of props spinnin’ out of the dark
Then pushin’ out the mail just as soon as it’s parked
My backdoor ride before the airliners fly
I’m onboard as the Islander takes to the sky

Tryin’ to get off-island in the middle of the night
Need to be off-island before the mornin’ light

Over the shore and out over the sea
When the Captain turns and he looks at me
Viequez is hot you know what to do
Wake me before landing or you can do that too

Tryin’ to get off-island in the middle of the night
Need to be off-island before the mornin’ light

The Captain slept in the cargo net
I wasn’t familiar with this aircraft yet
But two engines and wings Hey, what the Hell
We’ll keep this between us I’ll never tell

Tryin’ to get off-island in the middle of the night
Need to be off-island before the mornin’ light Chris Madden
