What am I going to do for my red opu
It's so very sore I don't know what to do
Listen my little sisters just look at all my blisters
Let them be a warning to you
 
 
Yesterday my steamer docked (airplane landed) at half past nine
The sun was shining bright and oh, the weather was fine
So I lay out on the beach 'til it was time to dine
That's how I got my red opu
 
 
All the pretty little girls were playing around
Getting a suntan so I thought I'd get one too
Out on the beach I played my ukulele
Getting a suntan that was not the thing to do, oh,
 
 
What am I going to do for my red opu
It's so very sore I don't know what to do
I guess the only way's to take and hour every day
Just oiling up my red opu
