Barrybados song

I always thought Barry needs an anthem - and what better than a version of the 1970's classic 'Barbados' by Tropically Typical

Here's my lyrical adaption - borrowing an airline from a Gavin & Stacey phrase!

Does anyone know any musicians who could make this song happen?

Would also be a good song for Barry Town United FC

Ladies and gentlemen

Welcoming you aboard Sugar Tit Airways Flight 372 to
Barrybados.

Kindly fasten you safety belts
and refrain from smoking until outside the Dolphin.

Woh
I'm going to Barrybados
woh
backa to the palm trees.
Woh
I'm going to see my girl friend
Woh
in the sunny Barry Riviera sea.

I don't want to be a call centre worker all my life.
I've seen too much of Cardiff City in the night.
Fly away on Sugar Tit Airways
fly me high
Barrybados sky.

I look up the sky and I see the clouds.
I look down at the ground and I see the rain go down the drain.
Fly away on Sugar Tit Airways
fly me high
Barrybados sky.

Woh
I'm going to Barrybados
woh backa to the palm trees
. . .
Far away from Cardiff City and the rain
It's really very nice to be home again.
Mary Jane met the Sugar Tits Airplane.
Now I know she loves me so.

Woh
I'm going to Barrybados
woh backa to the palm trees
. . .

Ladies and gentlemen
we are now commencing our approach To Barrybados.
The weather is fine
with a Maximum temperature of 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
The sky is blue
And the palm trees are really cool.
Dave's Coaches and his crew
hope you have had a pleasant flight
and that you will
Fly Sugar Tits Airways again.
Woh
I'm going to Barrybados
woh backa to the palm trees . .

Apparently Real Radio's Jagger & Woody have done a version - check out below - still think there's scope for a better version!
