The Lyrics

Just thought I'd get this in now, in case Dubai actually does manage to pay back its tens of billions in debt...
It was a sandy place with such cachet
Don't think they'll last for much longer
[Sung again]:
With all the cash they have to pay

Bye Bye Dubai, Dubai goodbye.
Dubai, Dubai bye bye.
Bye bye Dubai, debts are sky high
Dubai, Dubai bye bye.

You've been borrowing pots of money
Loads of money, and money don't come free
(I wish it could be)
Now it's time for you to repay it
And you start trying to delay it
Debt exceeds the GDP, so:

Bye bye Dubai, Dubai goodbye.
Dubai, Dubai bye bye.
Bye bye Dubai, who will stand by
Dubai, Dubai bye bye.

Palm-tree islands - now those are silly 'uns
They won't sell and they've cost you billions
Gee.. what stupidity we see
How did you get the banks to lend it
Such a dubaious way to spend it
Got no oil so plans are foiled, so

Bye bye Dubai, Dubai goodbye.
Dubai, Dubai bye bye.
Bye bye Dubai, the end is nigh
Dubai, Dubai bye bye.

"Such a dubaious way to spend it" - oh, that was awful, Phil - the best kind of pun.

Very good title, dubaious pun (as noted by Red Ant) and parody, Phil. I thought the best example of the Dubai "silly 'uns" was done by the people who built the extravagant Dubai golf course used for the last official event of the European golf season last month. For their sand traps, they imported sand from the United States.

..they imported sand from the US for their golf course? I wish I had the salesman for that working for me
