The Lyrics

Wearing a white suit, that show was a hoot
Mr. Ricardo, host of the spread
Fantasy seekers, brimmed hats and sneakers
Paying to play out stuff in their heads


Chorus:
Waving at planes again, Ricardo Montalban
Looking like a stiff shaker of salt
Some people came to find their fortune and fame
Mr. Roarke put some bucks in the vault

Don't know the reason I watched many seasons
With stuffy Ricardo and little Tattoo
Ricardo was snooty, a Mexican cutie
Maybe he's still there, I haven't a clue

(Chorus)

Women in crop tops, whole lot of flopped plots
Planes flew em in and then flew em back home
Their money was tendered
Some lives were endangered
But Mr. Roarke saved them from fantasy doom

Waving at planes again, Ricardo Montalban
Standing like a stiff shaker of salt
Some people came to find their fortune and fame
Mr. Roarke, put some bucks in the vault

Yes and some people claim that small Tattoo was to blame
He and Roarke stuffed some bucks in the vault

I think I watched the show once, hated it and, never tuned in again but, I like this. Especially liked the wordplay on "Women in crop tops, whole lot of flopped plots". 555

Rick got there first but I've already cut it so I may as well paste it...."Women in crop tops, whole lot of flopped plots" - lovely wordplay Royce - 555

I, too, liked the "flopped plots," plus the "stiff shaker of salt" line.

"Waving at planes again, Ricardo Montalban" is a catchy-paced phonic-mimicking great rework of OS and is Five-worthy in itself... WTF is Ones-guy's problem now??? Put up (a valid, specific criticism) or shut up.
