We’re not putting up with Old Man Winter Don’t bother hanging up that mistletoe Pack it in the trunk with all our presents and a sleigh Forget that old snow shovel ‘cause we’re leavin’ here today Had enough of roasting all these chestnuts Don’t want Jack Frost nipping at our toes Père Noël won’t tease ya down in Old French Polynesia It’s a sleigh ride in Bora Bora We’ll be drinking “Bloody Mary”s in the sunshine on the beach Eating poi and hoping we’re not outside Santa’s reach Swimming with the fishes in the ocean, blue and green Far from shopping malls and traffic jams and credit card machines We’ll still find a way to have our Christmas Stringing leis on palm trees by the sea Tie this rope around the sleigh, help me hitch it to the boat We don’t need no reindeer, and we sure don’t need no snow We’ll turn this Bali Hai into a Bali Ho-Ho-Ho It’s a sleigh ride in Bora Bora Hate to leave the gorgeous South Pacific Can’t imagine all the cold back home Winter in the tropics, so sublime and so serene Let’s start planning now for Easter Island come next spring One more holiday in romantic paradise Dancing to the drums beneath the stars You’ll always be my sweetie while we’re sailing ‘round Tahiti On our sleigh ride in Bora Bora It’s a sleigh ride in Bora Bora It’s a sleigh ride in Bora Bora!

about

'50s throwback musical kitsch at its finest, "Sleigh Ride In Bora Bora" is the best novelty holiday song since your grandma got run over by that reindeer! Recommended if you like the holiday classics "Mele Kalikimaka," "Christmas Island," and "Snow" (from White Christmas)
