Club Tropicana drinks are .....expensive

"Let me take you to the place where membership's a smiling face

Brush shoulders with the stars.
Where strangers take you by the hand and welcome you to Wonderland
From beneath their panamas.

Club Tropicana drinks are expensive

Fun and sunshine - there's enough for ev'ryone.
All that's missing is the sea
but don't worry
you can suntan.

Castaways and lovers meet
then kiss in Tropicana's heat.
Watch the waves break on the bay

Soft white sands
a blue lagoon

Cocktail time
a summer's tune
a whole night's holiday.
Club Tropicana drinks are expensive
. . .
Club Tropicana drinks are expensive
. . .
Pack your bags and leave tonight

Don't take your time
gotta move your feet
don't you miss the flight.
Pack your bags and leave tonight
. . .
Cool - cool - cool - cool

Club Tropicana drinks are expensive
. . .
Cool - cool - cool - cool - . . ."

Wham! - Club Tropicana lyrics (adapted for the UAE).

Siiiiigh. For a minute there I thought it was the Caribbean, then I read, all that's missing is the sea.

That striped shirt is so loud, I can hear a steel pan!

"Fantastic" was never really released in the U.S. I had never heard this song until a few years ago. Well, not this version.

Aren't all tropical drinks overpriced?

Yes, you're right farmgirl. The Tropicana here charges a whopping $10 for a beer. Did you hear George is in prison right now?
