Argentinian Boy
I must sail tonight
Back to Illinois
And the Northern Lights
But my boarding pass
Is just second class
So there's not enough space for two

I will always remember
The sweet sound of your guitar
I will never forget
The first time you showed me your cha cha cha

Indonesian Boy
I must leave tonight
I will miss your soya sauce
so nice
Oh my island love
I must fly above
Alone alas I'll think of you

I will always remember
Your gong~a~geng so cute
I will never forget the time I played your bamboo flute

You will always stay handsome in my holiday snaps
I would pay a kings ransom to get the negatives back
Although thoughts of you remain I must get back on track
And put my poor heart shaped brain in the suitcase and pack

Oh my English Boy
I am coming home
Back to London town
I'll no longer roam
We'll eat fish and chips in our Camden dome
Where there's just enough space for two

I will always remember
The sound of your rhyming slang
I will never forget
The day you asked me to be in your gang

la la la la la la la la la la
