In honor of new U.S. drone base in Cocos Islands, Indian Ocean....
WMRDC,

April , 2012 -- To Seychelles, Cocos Land....

The Australian Apr. 2, 2012:

SIGNA Knight - a descendant of the original Malay slaves of the Cocos Islands - was one of the majority on the remote Indian Ocean outpost who voted in a UN referendum in 1984 to integrate with Australia.

That day was a proud moment for the lifelong islander.

But the 63-year-old now fears that the government he looked to for protection and a good future for his children has struck a deal with the US to turn his quiet island home, 2750km northwest of Perth, into a busy military base.

'I am worried about Americans coming,' he told The Australian. 'They go to war a lot. I think if they come here, they will do what they like....'

Mr. Knight, who was born and bred on Cocos's Home Island, believes his people will eventually be told about plans to increase the US military presence on the isolated chain of atolls but never asked."

Cocos Land

(To the Tune of the Beach Boys' Kokomo)

Darwin, Socotra ooo I wanna take you
Seychelles, Jakarta come on pretty mama
Maldives, Colombo baby why don't we go
Agana, Naha, Chagos Archipelago

Off Australia
There's a place called Cocos land
That's where you wanna go to get away from it all
Killer drones in the sand
Napalm melting in your hand
We'll all rendition
To the rhythm of an Al Qaeda band
Down in Cocos land

Darwin, Socotra ooo I wanna take you
To Seychelles, Jakarta come on pretty mama
Maldives, Colombo baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Cocos land
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Cocos land
To Diego Garcia, that Mauritius mystique

P-8s out to sea
They'll perfect their geography
By and by they'll defy a little bit of gravity
Global Hawk delight
Dead kids on moonlit nights
That Prozac look in your eye
Give us a tropical contact high
Way down in Cocos land

Darwin, Socotra ooo I wanna take you
To Seychelles, Jakarta come on pretty mama
Maldives, Colombo baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Cocos land
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where Obama wanna go
Way down to Cocos land
Pattani province I wanna catch a glimpse

Everybody knows
A little place like Cocos land
Now if you wanna go
And get away from it all
Go down to Cocos land

Darwin, Socotra ooo I wanna take you
To Seychelles, Jakarta come on pretty mama
Maldives, Colombo baby why don't we go

Ooo I wanna take you down to Cocos land
We'll get there fast
And then we'll take it slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Cocos land

Dili, Port Moresby ooo I wanna take you
To Seychelles, Jakarta come on pretty mama
Sulawesi, Borneo baby why don't we go
Ooo I wanna take you down to Cocos land....
