This song is the reason I know the names of most of the islands in the West Indies.
“This one’s for Jamaica, Africa (you know, the country of Africa!), Dominica. Trinidad and Tobago. St. Kitts, Bermuda, Antigua, St. Lucia, St. Martin, and do not forget Monserrat, Nevis, Aruba, Grenada, Guyana, and Cuba. St. Vincent, Anguilla, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Curacao (why do they say “Kuricko”? I’ve always heard people say “Coor-a-sow”), Dominican Republic, and Rio. Martinique and Guadelupe. And Virgin Islands….”
(They left out Barbuda, Barbados, Haiti, the Antilles, St. Barts, and Turks and Caicos, I guess. Some of those are foreign territories, but Haiti and Barbados? Come on, Dream Warriors. Anyway, I still like the song.)
