The Lyrics

This song was originally performed by Marvin Straight. I just don't know if it was before or after he went blind.
Ooh,
when we set sail for Katmandu I never thought I'd throw up on you.
Then I lost my lunch on the dance floor,
And tears filled my eyes while playing shuffleboard.
And I've learned to despise creme brulee.
All I can say is anchors away.
Don't you know that...

I got sick on a Cruise Line and a bowel movement
Just crossed my mind.
Oh, I got sick on a Cruise Line
And I'm not sure I'll make it home alive.
Honey, honey yeah.
(I got sick on a Cruise Line and I threw up on some old lady). Eww.

I know that I'm far too young to die,
But the main course had to be e coli.
There was so much that I wanted to see,
But I've been glued to a toilet seat.
We could have gone somewhere else.
Now I'm suing the board of health.
I can't believe that...

I got sick on a Cruise Line and I've got diarrhea all the time.
Oh, I got sick on a Cruise Line and I'm not sure I'll make it home alive.
Honey, honey yeah.
(I got sick on a Cruise Line and I threw up on some old lady). Eww.

There's gonna be a mutiny on this ship,
And I wish I were on the Titanic.
Find me a lifeboat I feel abused. Is it true that the crew is sick?
They've been puking down below.
Did you see the Captain jump overboard?
Don't you know that...

I got sick on a Cruise Line,
And I've got a bowel movement all the time.
Baby, I got sick on a Cruise Line
And I'm not sure I'll make it home alive.
Honey, honey yeah.
(I got sick on a Cruise Line and I threw up on some old lady). Eww.
Honey, honey I know...I've got to go.
(I got sick on a Cruise Line and I threw up on some old lady). Eww.
Said I got sick on a Cruise Line.
Ooh, I got sick on a Cruise Line.

Katmandu? - March 09, 2007 - Report this comment
Lots of great lines. Was sailing to Katmandu intentional? I didn't think you could sail there, but intentional or not, that was pretty hilarious.Or maybe this is after the next big flood, where Katmandu and it's mountain range are now accessible by boat. Anyway, good job. Some of the old time authors here should take a peak at this for humor hints, instead of writing self-congratulatory or boring science crap.

I got sick on a Cruise line. I think it was this one: "Qantas never crashed? Great, Raymond! Now all we have to do is fly Qantas from Cincinnati to Sydney, and then fly it back to Los Angeles!" (from "Rain Man")

Somehow I don't think Disney will be using this as background music for their adds. :-) Good job. "Yeah, Michael definitely hurt Rainman's feelings, in 2007. Yeah, definitely."
