Party On The Porky Island

Summer is coming, or has already arrived somewhere, so it is time to open the barbecue season. Hopefully you can find the right mood with this reggae song smile BIAB provides excellent realtracks also for reggae.

This is yet another collaboration with Miira, we have written the lyrics together. Music and arrangement is by me and Miira is taking care of the vocals.

And to whet your appetite, there is also a video available.

This is actually the second part of our Till Meat Do Us Part trilogy, the first song was the title track.

Lyrics:

Party On The Porky Island

Sun, the friendly host
shining on the giant roast
chicken drumstick in your hand
enjoy the beat of the band
party on the porky island.

Gushing plate for lunch
oozing grease from the grill
glass is full of punch
belly asking for refill
I'm in trance
I'm in love with this meaty romance
at the party on the porky island.

Waves, the foamy dream
cherries on the ice cream
people joining in this fat feast
they loosen their belts, lusts released
party on the porky island.

[Chorus]

Join the party, celebrate
it doesn't matter how much you have overweight
barbecue, roast and stew
come, come, have some rum
drink, eat, have fun, and shake your bum.

Sea, the salty taste
sweat drops on the growing waist
pancakes on the frying pan
now eat as much as you can
party on the porky island.

[Chorus]

--------
Janne

We watched the video and really enjoyed it! We agree with Scott about the vocal having hints of ABBA. This very nicely done. Good lyric, vocal performance and mixing. Sweet!

Hi Janne,

A very refreshing summer song!
But... Rob didn't like the video all that much, being a very convinced vegetarian cry
But all in all... very nicely done.
