The Lyrics

Disclaimer: I have never been on a cruise to Sumatra, I'm sure if I took one it would be absolutely wonderful. Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
I think we'll never get home
Look how the fog hides the mast
Can't tell sideways from up
How long is this gonna last

We just keep driftin' away
The ocean's smokin' like dry ice
Where will we wind up tomorrow
Bet it's someplace that I despise

They said this cruise was premiere,
Never gets old,
Down to Sumatra,
No seat unsold.

But I keep on getting madder
In this hot sticky climate

If there's a way to escape this
I swear I'm gonna find it

'Cause there is sunburn and heat stroke
The guide didn't cover
When we signed up for this cruise
And one thing I know, the humidity blows
And the only relief is the booze
And if we ever dock I will just run away
Catch a flight back to dear Saskatoon

Well this cruise really sucks
We'd move better on ducks
'Cause we're stuck in a bad latitude

This situation is nuts
And I feel like a putz
'Cause I'm stuck in a bad latitude

But wait, that isn't all
The sea is actin' so rough
It makes me hold on real tight
And I will hurl soon enough

I need a guardian angel
To catapult me off this thing
And put my feet on the ground
Or just drop me in a hot spring

It's got so bad I can't sleep
Who would have guessed
This is my future
Just stuck on this quest
Just forever sailing in a fog
You cut with a knife
Steamin' 'round and through these big waves
For the rest of my life

And there is lightning and monsoon
The guide didn't cover
When we signed up for this cruise
And one thing I know, we are moving too slow
So they better not run out of food
And if we ever dock I will just run away
Catch a flight back to dear Saskatoon

Well this cruise really sucks
I paid three thousand bucks
To be stuck in a bad latitude

This situation is nuts
And I feel like a putz
'Cause I'm stuck in a bad latitude

Bad latitude
It's such a touristy snare
In this bad latitude
Won't someone shoot a flare

We're just a cruise ship of fools
Deceived by travel reviews
And I constantly rue
What I'm going through

We're in a bad,
We're in a bad latitude

We're just a cruise ship of fools
Deceived by travel reviews
Think we all oughta sue
The entire crew

We're in it bad
Yes, it makes me mad
And may I add
Ooh, we've all been had
It's really sad
That we're in a bad
We're in a bad latitude

Well this cruise really sucks
And I feel like a schmuck
'Cause I'm stuck in a bad latitude

This situation is nuts
And I feel like a putz
'Cause I'm stuck

'Cause there are storm squalls and whirpools
The guide didn't cover
When we signed up for this cruise
And one thing I know, we are tossed to and fro
Every day we all get a new bruise
And if we ever dock I will just run away
Catch a flight back to dear Saskatoon

Oh, we're in it bad
Oh, it makes me mad
Oh, we're in a bad latitude

Oh, we're in it bad
We've all been had
We're in a bad latitude

Oh, we're in it bad
Can't charge my iPad
We're in a bad latitude

It's a very special episode of The Love Boat!

I'm a bit confused by the word "Latitude". I've heard the word many times but I'm not too sure what it means or what it has to do with this parody. Personal problem that I could easily fix by reading a dictionary still this was a pretty good parody. Not your best but it was pretty good.

Matthias, "latitude" is the Y coordinate on navigation system. It measures the relative position on north-south axis. Latitudes are measured by degrees and zero degree latitude means you are on equator, while 90 degrees means you are either on North or South pole. Latitudes are also called "parallels" since they are parallel circles.

For someone who has lived all his life at Shreaking Sixties, the Sumatran latitudes - very close to Equator - are indeed bad latitudes. Fives.

(Artistry) A "555 hour tour....a 555 hout tour...." LOL

Seemed a bit heavy talking about the weather, could have been funnier to also talk about bad food, poor service, boring activities...but you stuck with the simple main concept/title sub to its zenith, which I was commenting elsewhere is the way to go with a Meatloaf parody.

(Artistry) I was surprised at the repeated lines here, that's not something I expect from you. Still, this was a really good parody, just coulda used a tad more polish. 555!

Great as always

(Artistry) I agree with Aggy that a variety of different ideas would've been relly funny, but as is... it's still really good!
