Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This goes out to all the rude girls on the dance floor,
It's your boy, Sean Kingston, y'all already know.
What a gwan!

The way that you move make me fall in love, ooha, ooha, ooha
Your sexy brown eyes, I can't get enough,
Oh girl you got me thinking 'bout da island ways,
The palm trees,
I'm kissing underneath da moon,
Oh baby girl you need some water,
Your body's getting hotter,
The sweat drippin' off of you.

Now break it down slow,
Where I'm from, girl, is how we do.
Now give me some more,
You got da whole club watching you.
You got me saying,
You dr-dr-drop it like an island girl,
You p-p-pop it like an island girl,
You g-g-got it like them island girls.
I don't know where you from but you dancing to the drums.
Like a island queen, your dancing like a island queen.
Oh, your such a pretty pretty little thing,
Tonight your my island queen.

Girl your royalty but what you doing here without your king,
I don't know, I don't know,
If it was up to me you'd be wearing my diamond ring.
Come home with me,
Take you over seas,
'Cause you move like that's where you belong.
Get your rest by the water,
Our body's getting hotter,
We be drumming to the early morn'

Now break it down slow,
Where I'm from, girl, is how we do.
Now give me some more,
You got da whole club watching you.
You got me saying,
You dr-dr-drop it like an island girl,
You p-p-pop it like an island girl,
You g-g-got it like them island girls.
I don't know where you from but you dancing to the drums.
Like a island queen, your dancing like a island queen.
Oh, your such a pretty pretty little thing,
Tonight your my island queen.

If your dancing with your queen,
Fellas, let me hear you sing, oh, oh
If your dancing with your king,
Ladies, let me hear your sing, oh, oh,
You take me to another place,
Where I'll watch you move your waist.

Oh girl I'm falling in love,
I don't know where your from,
But when you dance to the drums,
The whole club is watching you.
You got me saying,
You dr-dr-drop it like an island girl,
You p-p-pop it like an island girl,
You g-g-got it like them island girls.
I don't know where you from but you dancing to the drums.
Like an island queen, your dancing like an island queen.
Oh, your such a pretty pretty little thing,
Tonight your my island queen.

Ooha, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh my I, my island queen,
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh my I, my island queen.

Ya!
This song was dedicated to all my island girls,
And if your not from the islands,




Come see me.
I'll put in a little island in ya.
