I'll Take an Island is a song from the album "Yakko's World". The music was written by Julie Bernstein and the lyrics by John P. McCann.


I'll take an island
Staten or Ireland
Japan and Cyprus, too
With water on four sides
Not three
Like peninsulas do
I'll take Greenland
It's not a mean land
It's east of Baffin Bay
And Easter Island's
Got heads
Big as a Circle-K
Crete belongs to Greece
While Jamaica has Kingston Bay
Brando lives in Fiji they say
And Cuba's in the water
Doing what it oughta
Old Indonesia
Is bound to please ya
Stop by for Java and cream
While the Philippines
Got islands
Coming out of their jeans
Take it, boys!
Play, magic fingers, play!
Ooh, swing it!
Let's hear it for the band, folks!
All right!
You keep the landmass
I'll take a Sandwich
Island near the cold South Pole
If you're looking for me
Try an island
Anywhere on the globe
