"Desert Island" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared as a B-side to the "Love on a Farmboy's Wages" 7" doublepack single. It was later included as a bonus track on re-releases of Mummer.

The demo appeared on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 7 in 2006.

QuotesEdit

Andy (on demo): “Truly awful recording of a truly OK song. Slammed down for the Mummer sessions, complete with slowed down backing voice. Gratuitous castaway joke: Q: Who invented the five day week? A: Robinson Crusoe, as he was fucked by Friday.”

LyricsEdit

Cast away on a desert island

Me and poor Crusoe are sharing the same fate

Cast away on a desert island

With Great Britain written on its name plate


With my umbrella I go walking

Through all the sands on a building site

Across the shopping malls and motorways

Birds from Heathrow fill the

Night with people flying to escape

Friday comforts me and says it's pay day


Cast away on a desert island

With Great Britain written on its name plate


The game and coconuts is plentiful

You pick 'em right off of a supermarket shelf

And all the man-eaters are parked away

Down in garages

While their selfish owners drinking to escape

Lord of flies with cocktails in his conch shell


Don't rescue me, no

This is my home sweet home dear

Don't rescue me, no

I am far from alone here


Cast away on a desert island

Me and one nation are sharing the same fate

Cast away on a desert island

With Great Britain written on its name plate

Cast away on a desert island
