The Hurricane Song

(sung to the tune of “Kokomo” by The Beach Boys and with full apologies)

Aruba, jamaica ooo they wanna rake ya
Bermuda, bahamas left us in pajamas
Key largo, montego maybe I will forego
Jamaica

Off the Florida Keys
There’s another hurricane
That’s why we wanna go and get away from it all

Bodies in the sand
Tropical debris slicing up your hand
We’ll be falling in streets
Dodging bullets from all the looting bands
As sand banks overflow

Aruba, jamaica ooo they wanna rake ya
Bermuda, bahamas left us in pajamas
Key largo, montego maybe I will forego

Ooo each archipelago
Storm’ll get there fast
Then it’ll take it slow
That’s why we wanna go
Away from overflow

Season’s at peak, third storm to hit this week

We’ll block out the sea
And board up all openings completely
By and for we’ll restore a little electricity

Afternoons like night
Cancelled last minute flights
That worried look in your eye
Can’t help thinking that we’re going to die
From ocean overflow

Aruba, jamaica ooo they wanna rake ya
Bermuda, bahamas left us in pajamas
Key largo, montego maybe I will forego

Ooo each archipelago
Storm’ll get there fast
Then it’ll take it slow
That’s why we wanna go
Away from overflow

Not convinced, when it hasn’t been here since

Anybody knows
A little hut like a bungalow
When the winds start to blow
It won’t survive this at all
Get out of kokomo

Aruba, jamaica ooo they wanna rake ya
Bermuda, bahamas left us in pajamas
Key largo, montego maybe I will forego

Ooo each archipelago
Storm’ll get there fast
Then it’ll take it slow
That’s why we wanna go
Away from overflow

Aruba, jamaica ooo they wanna rake ya
Bermuda, bahamas left us in pajamas
Key largo, montego maybe I will forego

Ooo each archipelago (repeats)
