Shakiradam-Ships Don't Lie

Recommended Posts

I hate the name Eurodam. HAL should call the new ship Shakiradam to attract the younger demo. The name would also avail itself to one hot godmother and a catchy jingle.

 

For those of you not familiar with the Colombian earthquake, there are plenty of examples on YouTube.

 

But the commercial would go something like this, a la ``Hips Don't Lie.''

 

New Lady in the port tonight

No perks No perks

We got the Shakiradam in the port tonight

No tipping, no tipping

 

I never really knew a ship could have so much

She makes me want to go Dutch

Ney, ney. Tots zions. Bedank for your guilder.

 

Oh baby when you talk like that

You make HAL feel phat

We can make a buck, with a little luck

And some clever marketing

 

You know ships don't lie and thats the rub

You want a cruise, not a tub

All the attraction, no tension

Here's how we bite into your pension

 

Hey girl, I can feel your body moving

And it's driving me nuts

Well you think you can go past Cape Hatteras,

Without paying a buck for a mattress

 

Give us 50 and we'll turn on the stabilizers

Another 20 for a porthole

Toss in 10 for appetizers

and 35 for Dutch night sole.

 

Oh baby when you talk like that

You make the bean counters holler

Add it up, add it up

Sooner or later, we'll have your dollars.

 

You know ships don't lie

Give us some cash for bingo

Lemonade! Charge. Bread pudding! Charge

Those little drinks with captain don't come cheap.

 

Hey, maybe we can charge to use those walkie-talkies that beep

And the voice from the bridge ?

Where are we and where are we going?

That will be 20 bucks and another 5 to hear the C-D.

 

I never really knew a ship could have so much

She makes me want to go Dutch

Ney, ney. Tots zions. Bedank for your guilder

 

Want to dump the kids at the oasis

Don't think about it unless you give us some lettuce.

Why are the chumley bears getting all the molases

Because they spend money on a daily basis.

 

Massage! Waxing! And some naughtly little faxing.

 

Ships don't lie and we're Zuiders

Give us more money or you'll get a bag of sliders.

 

How can we charge the suites more?

Don't give them enough hangars or toilets that stink.

Not like Celebrity's CONSTIPATION.

 

I want the captain and hot man at my CC thing

Give us $100 and we'll give you a ring.

 

Ships don't lie and you don't need to holler

We'll let you in the dining room on formal night in sweats for a dollar.

Ney, ney. Tots zions. Bedank for your guilder

 

No tipping. No tipping.

So how do you really feel about Eurodam? :D Don't hold back.

Gotta say that is one clever piece of poetry.

On the cuttin' edge for this board. Shakira's hips don't lie. Did you stay up all night thinking of your lyrics? Gosh! ...You have skills.

I believe the Berghoff no longer exists

 

But the Squan Tav, with Notre Dame shrine, is still serving up red sauce.

Mariner: maybe, just maybe, you might consider seeking professional help:D

 

maybe, just maybe, you might suggest Seattle use these lyrics in "rap song" to be performed at the finals of Snowball Jackpot Bingo right before the final lucky number is randomly selected

 

have a "feeling" you're not in love with the new name and looks like you'd vote against EuroDam in the HAL naming poll (if HAL ever runs the poll:eek:)

 

if you're in the voting mood, however, maybe just maybe you should drop in and take a look at the $30.00 Pinnacle Grill thread

 

the voting there is "hot and heavy";)

Well I just hope that if Shakira tries to enter the dining room in the outfit she wears in that video, they strictly enforce the dress code and send her back to my ....I mean her cabin to change :) :) :)

You MUST send this to HALHQ, attn Stein Kruse.

Print it out nice and fancy, on really nice paper, with nice fancy font and color illustrations, even!!!! :D

 

Oh, that's RICH!

 

Learn it REALLY well and do it at the Talent Show!!! :eek:

Greg,

 

I would not be surprised if Stein's Blackberry didn't ring with a copy of it last night.

 

There's little doubt that the crew is passing it around and already rehearsing it for one of their partys!

Maybe ... just maybe ... there's yet hope that the "Eruodam" name won't float? I wonder ...

I have it from the best authority that all cruise directors will perform this song instead of ``Love in Any Language'' before each disembarkation talk!
