Isla de Encanta

Hermanita ven conmigo
Hermanita ven conmigo
Hay aviones cada hora

Isla de encanta
Me voy, me voy, me voy!

Donde no hay sufrimiento
Donde no hay sufrimiento
Me vieron pasar por la calle

Isla de encanta
Me voy, me voy, me voy!

Nuestro propio animal canta a la gente para gratis
Hey babe, what are we doing here?

Uuh-Aaaaaaah!
Loooooord!
Patria

Isla de encanta
Me voy, me voy, me voy!

Song Notes

“Isla de Encanta” is a song by Pixies that appears on their 1987 EP Come on Pilgrim. The song is sung in Spanish, and draws upon some of songwriter Black Francis’s experiences in Puerto Rico. “Isla de Encanta,” is an alteration of the island’s nickname, La Isla del Encanto (meaning “isle of enchantment”).

No recorded version of the track by Ash exists. However, Tim Wheeler played the song live with And So I Watch You From Afar on March 24th, 2012, at the Xoyo in London. The show was sponsored by Jack Daniels and saw Tim play a whole set of Pixies songs.
