The Flying Pickets

The Flying Pickets
Coral Island/Summertime

Capture if you will, a tropic island
The palm trees wafting gently in the breeze
It's 40 degrees celsius in the shade
The waves are coming in in threes

You bought a couple of chinop helicopters for a Beiroet barbie
Gone of the rings blood warming gently in the sun
One hand you've a nice cool tube of vortex
and the other hand you got the biggest Queensland coctail you've ever seen in your life
now you know what i'm talking about, don't you?

you got all rolled up in a copy of australien womens weekly
then tairee heads*kwaak*that mollen dindy madness, that devils weed from hell
you rolled youself up, a little zombieand
And you take a little toke of that little number
and suddenly
it's summertime

babubabum babubabum bebabubababubum(ahhh)
babubabam babubabum bebabubababubum

summertime(summertime)
and the living is easy
the fishes jumping(jumping)up
and the cotton is high(the cottons's as high as an elehpant's eye)
your daddy's rich(rii-ii-iich)
and you mama's goodlooking
so hush-hush baby don't you cry-y-y
one of these mornings
you're gonna wake up singing
you're gonna spread(spread) your(your) wings
and reach for the sky (reach for the sky)
until that morning
there ain't nothing can call you
But your mommy and daddy standing by-y-y
