We’re on a boat!

Being the creative and cheeseball that I am, I decided to turn my company’s holiday party announcement into a rap. I’m on the social committee and we planned a festive time aboard the Tiki Mermaid for a cruise in Marina del Rey. With that in mind, only one rap could do . . .

Get your towels ready,
It’s about to go down.
Our office building doesn’t have a deck.
So we’re going somewhere that does.
We’re doing this, let’s go.

We’re on a boat, we’re on a boat
Everybody look at us
‘Cause we’re sailing on a boat
We’re on a boat, we’re on a boat
Take a good hard look
At IBISWorld’s boat.

We’re getting a boat for our holiday jam.
Straight flowing on a boat like pirates on the lam.
Busting five knots, wind whipping through our coats.
Well, maybe not that fast, but we will be on a boat.

Take a picture dudes, we’re on a Cali cruise.
Sipping fine wine and drinks ‘cause we like booze
In our luau shirts and holiday tresses,
We’re eating finger foods, instead of
updating global messes.

We’re riding Tiki Mermaid style, jealous I bet
Far from crashing waves, no one’s getting wet.
Marina del Rey days become del Rey nights,
But we’ll navigate the dark with our safety lights.

We’ll catch a bus and, then board our boat and,
Spend three hours booze cruising till we can’t stand.
We’re the best IBIS team in the whole wide world
Most know how to party, but some may hurl.

Sub-mit report, this boat is real.

No office! We at sea, land lover!
No coffee! Get a drink, land lover!
We on the deck with our toys, land lover!
This boat engine make noise, land lover!

Hey Harv, look out for us now,
Getting’ quite tipsy on the starboard bow.
Might step off of this boat into the sea somehow,
Like Rob Andrews, anything is possible!

Never thought we’d be on a boat
It’s a big blue watery road,
Justin Ruthven, look at us, oh, all hands on deck.
We totally earned the day
To have a party boat come our way
Believe us when we say: It’s Tiki Mermaid.

We’re on a boat, we’re on a boat
Everybody look at us
‘Cause we’re sailing on a boat
We’re on a boat, we’re on a boat
Take a good hard look
At IBISWorld’s boat.
