To Bermuda, Bahama come on pretty mama

    I love that song it makes more fun to do at the beach and so I want to be like fun song on the beach then I can write about the beach then me and Jonas brothers can do that. But we can write Kokomo for The Beach Boys, but it looks like the beach I love the beach my friends are taking me there and writing music and get creative, we’re using you feel the love, and also broken heart.

    This song is about an idealized tropical location, not a real one. There is no such actual place "off the Florida Keys" as "Kokomo"; the real "Kokomo", despite the tropical-sounding name is, ironically, in central Indiana.

    For the life of me, the bridge supposedly about the "Monserrat mystique" has always sounded like, "Be sure not to make / The Monserrat mistake," which would be appropriate as there was little there before the volcanic eruption and even less since.

    If you need a wewsite to explain to you how a couple at sea could try to "defy a little gravity," then I feel sorry for you.
