The Lyrics

I heard a nerd,
A Bora Bora nerd
Native, like me
Quite bored stiff-lee,
Awake he's stirred..

We scan the seas,
Beg cruise ship skippers, please
Help out, m'lord..
Take us aboard
Away from these..
White sands, palm trees...

How are things in Bora Bora?
'Bout the same as it's name might suggest
Ocean tides keep splashin' in and out,
Washin' the shore,
Seagulls just fly and nest..

How are things in Bora Bora?
Nothin' much to do, fish and sit butts
Far too many of those double jokes,
"Hello, Hello"
"Goodbye, Goodbye"
And they drive ya' nuts..
Houses are all huts..

Query any sleepin' fellow
Bored and lyin' 'round the bay
Better here or Philidelphi-a?
He''ll say..
I'll glad-ly trade Bora Bora
For PA..

We'll glad-ly trade Bor-a Bor-a

Charming OS from Finian's Rainbow (thanks for that!) and worthy of the parody author! If you want a tropical paradise, go to Noman. Remember...Noman is an island! ;D

Good job, and nice tour of the island, AFW. Are you really a native or was that just part poetic license?

Thanks, OMR...and Rod...not a native, but Boy, how I wish I were...instead of being stuck here in NE Ohio, smack in the path of the oncoming Great Lakes blizzard..
