lyrics

Oh well hello there, the surf is up I see
Out on the island, we call it Bikini
But I’m sure you’ll drown
We can’t go swimming now
We’ll take the frown
And turn it upside-down

There was no option, a motion-colour film
Bikinians left, so we blew up a hill
But it’s different now
And no one is around
The testing’s loud
It’s the nuclear sound

Bikini Atoll, nothing gets old
Bikini Atoll, war is cold

I wouldn’t want to, ever head back there soon
There was a fall-out we left the lagoon
But it’s different now
And no one is around
The testing’s loud
It’s the nuclear sound

Sometimes I wonder, just if I’m having fun
And if I’d ask them, they’d say keep out of the sun
But I’m sure you’ll drown
We can’t go swimming now
We’ll take the frown
And turn it upside-down

Bikini Atoll, nothing gets old
Bikini Atoll, war is cold.

Let's go catch those waves, boys!
