                                          THE ISLAND
                      On the island people used to live
                        Trees used to grow
                       Animals used to graze
                      Birds used to fly
                        But it never sinks!

                       There comes an explorer
                     A white man from Cuba
                      Who also wondered
                      Where did this small piece of land came from
                       But even the people who stay there
                       Did not know the origin of the island
                       At the center of large waters
                       Fully loaded with trees
                       Fully loaded with animals
                       But, it never sinks!
