The Lyrics

got there it's so appealing
sit beside the sea with a cup of tea
i just cannot stand the heat
coz i don't smell sweet coz i'm stuck to seat
hey waiter can i have a gin sling
with champagne not pomange
going out this afternoon
gonna go to spain gonna go by train
it's just so slow so slow
now i want a meal with view

off off off off off to crete
the wine will flow and flow
won't you lift the toilet seat
off off off off off to crete
please don't wet the toilet seat
off off off off off to crete
don't you drink your whiskey neat
off off off off off to crete
and i think your daughters sweet

hey hey hey got yer
i'm no beleiver
where's the dead sea scrolls
where's the dead sea scrolls
the rep takes all of my money
talks off my ear-hole
should be on the dole

shock your gonna get me pumping
thanks for turning up
knocked my coffee cup
walk her see you on the shore
look at the moonlite sky
with your one good eye
wind may blow and so
i've the sex appeal for two

off off off off off to crete
i just don't know we'll throw
pebbles far across the sea
off off off off off to crete
won't you try and be discrete
off off off off off to crete
will you help me beat my meat
off off off off off a treat

got to got to find my keys help me
you gotta help me your gonna leave me
if you want a cuddle be indiscrete
snog her on the shore it's gotta be neat
off off off off off the street
won't you find somewhere to cheat
off off off off off the seat
i some what sense defeat
off off off off off a treat
won't you take me home from crete.

Great stuff, Tomario...perfectly encapsulates the direness of a Club 18-30 holiday. 555

(ABC3) Had to read it twice to get the story...I gotta travel more often (or maybe I don't, if this parody is saying so!)

(ABC3O) Congratulations on the first (and probably only) MSM parody here, Tomario. I got a bit lost after the second chorus, but being as how this is a dance toon it probably has near-inifnite remixed versions. Perfect pacing and rhyming up to that point anyway, and an out-there idea. Regarding the 12th line from the bottom: the answer is no, but I'll give you a 555.

Not really my kind of humor :(, but the poetry was good, and you mimicked the accent well. One point from my meteorology education: Crete is hot, but it isn't all that humid.---MM

(ABC3O) Hey...I remember this song! It was once played on the radio for some reason...maybe it was a cover, as this song came out BEFORE I WAS BORN...yeh, great work, tomario!

(ABC3O)See above. This brings back memories of boozy nights with a bunch of Canadians in Chania, and thus gets a big thumbs up from me, tomario!

(ABC) Clever use of repetition for rhythmic effect.
