On a Tropical Island

"On a Tropical Island/As a Tropical Island" is a song sung by Jake in the episode "Morituri Te Salutamus." The song was written by storyboard artist Rebecca Sugar. Jake comes up with a plan to dig for lava so he can forge a molten hula hoop, thinking that it would boost morale and make the tomb as fun "as a tropical island."

Lyrics

Prelude

As a tropical island,
As a tropical island,
As a tropical island,
As a tropical island.


Main song

On a tropical island,
Underneath the molten lava moon.
Hangin' with the hula dancers,
Askin' questions cause' they got all the answers.
Puttin' on lotion!
Sittin' by the ocean!
Rubbin' it on my body!
Rubbin' it on my body!
Get me out of this caa-a-ve,
'Cause it's nothing but a gladiator graa-a-ve.
And if I stick to the plaa-a-n,
I think I'll turn into a lava maa-a-n.
I think I'll turn into a lava man!

Trivia

  • Jake does a lot of summer-related activities while singing this song. One includes molding some sand over his feet to look like a mermaid's tail, and morphing his hands to look like hula dancers.
