We've got sunlight on the sand
We've got moonlight on the sea
We've got mangos and bananas you can pick right off the tree
We've got volleyball and ping pong and a lot of dandy games
What don't we got? We don't got dames

We get packages from home
We get movies, we get shows
We get speeches from our skippers
And advice from Tokeo
WWe get letters doused with perfume, we get dizzy from the smell
What don't we get? you know darn well

We got nothing to put on a clean white suit for 'no clean white suit'
What we need there is no substitue for 'no substitute at all'

There is nothing like a dame nothing in the world
There is nothing you can name that is anything like a dame

We get restless, we feel blue, we feel lonely and in grief
We feel every kind of feeling but the feeling of relief
Well if your hungry as a wolf felt when he met red riding hood
What don't we feel, we don't feel good

Lots of things in life are beautiful but brothers 'oh my brother'
There is one particular thing that is nothing what'soever in any shape or form like any other 'and i like that shape... of thing'

There is nothing like a dame nothing in the world
There is nothing you can name that is anything like a dame

Nothing else is but the same nothing in the world,
Has the soft and wavy frame like the silhouette of a dame

I said there is 'there is' there's nothing 'there's nothing' there's absolutely nothing 'absolutely nothing'
Said there is nothing like a frame 'of a dame'

So suppose a dame ain't bright or completly free from flaws or as faithful as a bird dog or as kind as santa clause
Its a waste of time to worry over things that they have not
Be thankful for the things they've got

There is nothing that you can name that is anything like a dame
There are no books like a dame, nothing looks like a dame
There are no drinks like a dame and nothing thinks like a dame
Nothing acts like a dame or atracts like a dame
There ain't a thing that's wrong with any man here
That can't be cured by putting him near
A girly womanly female feminine dame'

Funky disco chicken
There is nothing like a disco
