"Enjoy It While You Can" is a song sung by cruise entertainment director Rowan Priddis at the halfway point of the cruise. He was backed by Gary Ocean and the Motion.

Lyrics[edit]

Enjoy it while you can,
Ice sculptures, conga lines and working on your tan.
Enjoy it while you're here,
One week of glitz and glam instead of pain and fear.
In just a few days' time this boat pulls into dock,
And when it does you lovely people may be in for a shock.
Here you've made exciting friends, back home you'll all lose touch.
Here Hawaiian shirts are cool, back home, well not so much.
Back home you'll be too tired for making magic in the sack.
So eat buffet, and play and pray there's some delay on our way back.
Enjoy it while you can,
Here at sea we drink and frolic, back home that's called alcoholic,
Your futures are but parabolic
Enjoy it while you can!

Behind the Laughter[edit]

The song's composer, Bobby Lopez, was given lyrics by The Simpsons writers, which he then tweaked and produced with a synthesizer band in New York. He opted to go for something "cheesy that actually could be performed on a cruise ship. We went in a Carnival Cruise, 'Feelin' Hot Hot Hot' direction."[1][2] Steve Coogan recorded his vocals in New York. It was then sent to Chris Ledesma and Alf Clausen, who added a orchestral arrangement.[2]
