Phuket, etc., etc., etc.

Lennon, McCartney, Chaiwat and Chana opened for CSN&Y&TUKTUK.

Isn't it nice when families work together?

There may be a limerick here somewhere.

F.Y.I.

While English speakers often pronounce the “Ph” in words as an “F” sound, Thais tend to pronounce words beginning with “Ph” with a stressed “P” sound, meaning that Phuket is actually pronounced “Poo-ket” or “Poo-get”.

---The Ballad of Chaiwat and Chana

Now Chaiwat and Chana lived in Phuket Town
where they drove a tuk-tuk all around
Big Phucket Town
Delivering joints to joints about Phuket Town

One sad day they went to the bad
caught loading joints by a policeman lad
instead of loading their tuk-tuk
they were put in the slammer
before a complaint they could murmer

now Chaiwat and Chana have no tuk-tuk
and they have no joints to deliver to any joints
anywhere in Phucket Town
they have moved on far from Phuket
where they hope to buy another tuk-tuk
and say Phuket--forget it.
