Mauritius is a song by Charli XCX from her unreleased album, 14It serves as the eleventh track from the album. The track was written by XCX and produced by Darren Bazzoni.


It was a quarter to ten at night and she was feeling alright,
Just been out shopping all day ‘cause it was the school holidays,
And she got back home, sat alone,
Flicked on the computer and talked to her friends,
And this boy came online,
He said he’d missed her, he said he liked her,
Even though they were best friends and had been for such a long time

So she started to ask some questions,
Just some random little things,
Cos she felt that if they were going to click,
She’d need to know the details

He said, “My favorite color is light blue, I like Irish ice cream,
Whiskey’s pretty yummy and I like worn-in jeans,
I’d put kissing over hugging and laughing over tears,
I like pizza and Mauritius but I ain’t been there in years.”

Well, what a lovely, lovely boy,
He seemed bright enough, he had a life and a good personality,
But not much going on in the bedroom, if you know what I mean,
But I guess it kind of adds to his appeal,
This is the guy who said he liked her,
And that she reminded him of something he could see but couldn’t quite reach

So she wrote all this down in a book that she could look at any day,
And it would always remind her of his smile,
And his funny colored hair

She said, “I like lots of different colours and cookie dough ice cream,
Bailey’s is the best even though it’s quite fattening,
I’d put kissing over hugging and laughing over tears,
I like pizza and I don’t think I’ve been to Mauritius.”

Is it good there, is it good there, does it have lots of sun?
Is it good there, would it be really, really fun?
He said, “I think it would be fun if we went there sometime.”
He said, “Let’s go.”
She said, “Where?”
To Mauritius
