SING A TROPICAL SONG from 1944 film "Her Lucky Night" (Frank Loesser 1944) The Andrews Sisters with Vic Schoen & his Orchestra (film soundtrack) recorded April 4th 1944 New York On beautiful tropical Trinidad isle Where Caribbean breezes play, The quaint little natives will greet you and smile As they welcome you this way, As they welcome you this way. Upon de island from which we come, We have a national characteristic which is very strong, Because we put de accent upon the wrong syllable And we sing a tropical song. Upon de island from which we come, The point of interest, beside de coconut and de sarong, Is that we put de accent upon the wrong syllable And we sing a tropical song. We could show de natural wonders of the scenery to you, We could show de native birds and perhaps give two or three to you, And describe de climate and also tell the elevation, We could very hastily introduce de population! We could show you de hotel and many of out fscinating places, We could take you to de bar where visitors may fall upon their faces! If we only had a truck, we could probably take you to de races, But we prefer to acquaint you with de following interesting fact. That on the island from which we come, We have a national characteristic which is very strong, And if you should remain here, You will discover one peculiar thing before very long, That you have put de accent upon de wrong syllable And you sing a tropical song, And so we say welcome - to you!
