Anybody else remember this tune?
The chorus was something like:
" . . . lemme tell ya now"
LiliAnna LiliAnna darlin,
please divorce your husband
If I have to swim or sell my clothes
I'm goin back to the island of Barbados
1st verse might have been (don't laugh if its wrong):
Land of flying fish and potatos
Land of flying fish and potatos
Such a beautiful island
on this <something> vacation
. . . .
<something> <something> <sputter> <chug> <clunk>
forgot the rest
That's all I have anymore. It was 30 years ago, I wasn't wrapped
up real tight then and my wiring's been misfiring ever since.
Any help greatly appreciated.

I'd post this question over at rec.music.folk . I stop over there once
in a while and I've even been known to post a thing or two, but most
of those folks are a little too scary for me. More than a few are
casualities of the Great Folk Music Scare of the 60's, but I'd be
surprised if someone didn't know (and probably still own) this song.
Use an assumed name.
Will you go there for me, buddy? <blink blink> ;-)
Hey George, That aggravation that pops up around rmmga from
time to time is a really small part of all the info that's
flowing thru here every day. There were dozens of great threads
running just in the last month. You used to post more, and good
stuff too, as I recall. Be nice if you were still doing that.
Well the old short term memory has seen better days (or so I
dimly recall) but I got my Georges pretty straight --- Kashner,
Garklavs, George4098, and of course George of-the-no-last-name.
I guess you and 4098 could be the same unit without the model

That and a buck'll get ya a cup a joe.
>I guess I was posting more a while back,
>and the fact that I don't have a hell of a lot to say anyway
Doesn't stop me. Besides there's always 50 different threads
>I think I post more than enough.
Me too. I mean me, not you.

Even at their worst they only take up a very small corner of all
>Feel free to use my name if you go to rec.music.folk.
I told ya I ain't going there.

I intend to.

No, you. And while you're there . . .

Gee, I'm flattered. So flattered, in fact, that I'm hesitant to
suggest maybe you've got me mixed up with someone else. Or your recall
isn't that great. <g> I'll take the compliment anyway, even if it's
intended for someone else. I guess I was posting more a while back,
but considering it's hard to get two words out of me in "real life"
and the fact that I don't have a hell of a lot to say anyway I think I
post more than enough.
I will say that when I first signed on here there weren't as many
flare-ups as there seem to be now, but I guess those things run in
cycles. All in all, this group has a pretty good mix of people, and
I've learned a lot since being here.
Feel free to use my name if you go to rec.music.folk. Stay out of any
threads with "hammered dulcimer" in the header....they can get nasty.
Wanna have some fun? Post a message asking for a definition of folk
music, then sit back and watch 'em bump heads....
I used to be a big JCY fan and remember the Barbados song. It's
running around in my head, but I can't remember the words. I'm
sure it isn't potatoes though.
Missed you at DC 1 buddy. Since you are in the neighborhood I'm
surprised you couldn't make it. Shoot, it's only a ten hour
drive or so from Cleveland isn't it?
DC1 sounds like it was a blast. That squirrely fire fighter from
Boston wasn't there was he?
Nice of Jeff and Trish to open there home for that.
