    Today I discovered that the Tiki Room chorus is "All the birds sing words and the flowers croon."


    [face_plain]

    CROON?


    This whole time I thought it was BLOOM.


    Why is it not bloom?? That rhymes better with "room" anyway!! I have been singing this song for years and saying BLOOM.

    I even did a dance routine to this song when I was four years old (FOUR YEARS OLD, I say) and have been singing it as "bloom"!


    WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME?

    Why would you need to make a point of noting that flowers bloom?

    Isn't that like noting that the sun rising in the morning, or that water runs downhill?

    You probably haven't gone to the Tiki Room enough times in a single day.

    Clearly not enough to croon with the flowers. 8-}

    Flowers do not always bloom, and it is certainly obvious enough that the birds are singing words.



    EDIT: Jello, I've only ever been there twice in a day!

    i think jabba's point was that it's much more unique to the enchanted tiki room that flowers croon than it is that they bloom. i think i agree with him on this issue.

    The Tiki room is a great place to take a nap.

    croon/bloom

    Look up "Assonance." Might help if it is spelled properly--no guarantees.

    I like the idea of flowers crooning more than blooming.

    You're not allowed to have every part of your song rhyme except for one because I said so.


    Might as well change it to "where the birds sing words and gardeners prune" or some such nonsense.
