Lyrics

ISLAND LIFE ARUBA 10/15/21
MUSIC AND LYRICS: RICHARD HOLLEY
VERSE 1
ISLAND LIFE IS CALLING TO ME
THE SUN AND THE SEA MAKE ME HAPPY.
ARUBA’S THE PLACE WHERE I’D RATHER BE,
WHERE MY SPIRIT AND HEART RUN FREE.

CHORUS
ARUBA, WELCOME HOME, WELCOME HOME
YOU ARE ALWAYS AT HOME IN ARUBA.
THEIR PEOPLE, EVERYONE IS SO KIND,
YOU CAN REALLY UNWIND IN ARUBA.

BRIDGE
REGGAE-DANCING; SCUBA-DIVING;
THE IGUANAS ARE JIVIN’ BY THE POOL ALL DAY.
COUPLES SMILING; CHILDREN LAUGHING;
CAUSE’ THIS PARADISE IS WHERE THEY COME TO STAY.

VERSE 2
WALKS BY THE SHORE, YOU WILL ALWAYS WANT MORE
“ARIBA” THEY’LL POUR IN ARUBA.
COUPLES IN LOVE, SPARKLIN’ NIGHTS UP ABOVE
ALL THE FUN YOU’VE EVER DREAMPT OF.

CHORUS
ARUBA, WELCOME HOME, WELCOME HOME
YOU ARE ALWAYS AT HOME IN ARUBA.
THEIR PEOPLE, EVERYONE IS SO KIND,
YOU CAN REALLY UNWIND IN ARUBA.

BRIDGE
REGGAE-DANCING; SCUBA-DIVING;
THE IGUANAS ARE JIVIN’ BY THE POOL ALL DAY.
COUPLES SMILING; CHILDREN LAUGHING;
CAUSE’ THIS PARADISE IS WHERE THEY’VE COME TO STAY

SLOW PRE-END
WHEN IT’S TIME TO GO HOME,
(DON’T GO HOME)
AND LEAVE THIS LOVELY ISLAND BEHIND,
WE CAN’T WAIT TO COME BACK,
(PLEASE COME BACK)
TO OUR BEAUTIFUL ARUBA, TO FIND PEACE OF MIND.

FADE (on CHORUS)
ARUBA, WELCOME HOME, WELCOME HOME,
YOU ARE ALWAYS AT HOME IN ARUBA.
THEIR PEOPLE, EVERYONE IS SO KIND,
YOU CAN REALLY UNWIND IN ARUBA.

ARUBA, WELCOME HOME, WELCOME HOME,
YOU ARE ALWAYS AT HOME IN ARUBA.
THEIR PEOPLE, EVERYONE IS SO KIND,
YOU CAN REALLY UNWIND IN ARUBA.

ARUBA….ARUBA…. WELCOME HOME
