Make Me An Island (Hammond & Hazelwood)
Recorded by Joe Dolan
1969 - Pye 7N17738 / If You Care A Little About Me

Different eyes, different sighs, different girls every day
Different names, different games took my breath clean away;
But I'm changed, rearranged, I'm enlightened and how
you have caught me, you have taught me and I'm different now.

Take me and break me and close all your windows and doors,
Shut me off, cut me off, make me an island, I'm yours;
Take me away from the world, take me away from the girls,
Take me and break me and make me an island, I'm yours.

Running round, shifting ground, that's the life I have seen,
But I'm tired, uninspired and I've wiped my slate clean;
You are mine, I am yours if the Lord will allow,
You have caught me, you have taught me and I'm different now.

(This track reached No.1 in 14 different countries in 1969 and reached No.3 in the British charts)
