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 a 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.
