There Ain’t Nothin’ Like A Dame from South Pacific, led by Susan Casper, backed up by Ursula and the Tips
We’ve got sunlight on the sand
We’ve got moonlight on the sea
We’ve got mangoes and bananas we can pick right off a tree
We’ve got volleyball and ping-pong and a lot of dandy games
What ain’t we got?
We ain’t got dames!

We get packages from home
We get movies, we get shows
We get speeches from our skipper
And advice from Tokyo Rose
We get letters doused with perfume,
We get dizzy from the smell
What don’t we get?
You know damn well

We’ve got nothing to put on a clean white suit for
What we need is what there ain’t no substitute for

There is nothing like a dame
Nothing in the world
There is nothing you can name
That is anything like a dame
