Ong Ong Lyrics

(La la la)

I got on a boat on a hot sunny day
To get out of this town
'Cause the tarmac was melting and the people seemed to sway
Stuck in the underground

To the isle of the black kites and the wishing tree
I wanna be with you
On the slow boat to Lantau through misty seas
I wanna be with you

I pulled out the harbour with precession behind
And I'm feeling the love of you
So you better get to charge until I see you again
You know just what to do

If you're caught up in the gales on the junk boat sea
I wanna be with you
Whit the pilgrims the mountains in the high trapeze
I wanna be with you

If you're the landlord, the social on P.S.T
I wanna be with you
On an island of rainclouds and verdant seas
I will be there with you

Oh
(La la la)

What is the Meaning of Ong Ong?

A sunny day, a boat, and an escape from the mundane - sounds like a tropical vacation, right? Well, Blur's lyrics are more than just an invitation to a seaside getaway. With veiled references to Hong Kong islands and subtle nods to Chinese culture, this song is actually a love letter to the city. But it's not all sunshine and rainbows. There's also a sense of longing for connection amidst the hustle and bustle of urban life. The repeated phrase "I wanna be with you" is both a romantic plea and an affirmation of human connection in our increasingly disconnected world. So grab your sunhat, hop on that slow boat to Lantau, and remember - no matter where you are in the world, we're all just looking for someone to share it with. #LoveLetterToHongKong #UrbanLonging #HumanConnection #BlurTakesYouOnAVacation
