No More Ooh in Ooh La La!



Ebbing Flowing Darkly Inky Controversial Black Burkini
She was delayed when she came to the water
She was disturbing to those who could see
She was delayed when she came to the water
She was delayed by the powers that be
Du, twa, qua–no more ooh in ooh la la!

It was an ebbing flowing darkly inky controversial black Burkini
That she wore to la mer on that day
An ebbing flowing darkly inky controversial black Burkini
Down on the sand where she started to lay
Du, twa, qua–oh mon dieu, no ooh la la!

She was unafraid to be out in the open
Some people snickered, crying “ha ha”
Unafraid to be out in the open
Only she could see what she saw
Du, twa, qua–no more ooh in ooh la la!

It was an ebbing flowing darkly inky controversial black Burkini
That she wore to la mer on that day
An ebbing flowing darkly inky controversial black Burkini
Down on the sand where she started to lay
Du, twa, qua–oh mon dieu, no ooh la la!

She’s like a seal having fun in the water
The surfers are eyeing her keen
Just like a seal having fun in the water
On the front page of Surf Magazine!
Du, twa, qua–no more ooh in ooh la la!

It was an ebbing flowing darkly inky controversial black Burkini
That she wore to la mer on that day
An ebbing flowing darkly inky controversial black Burkini
Down on the sand where she started to lay
Du, twa, qua–oh mon dieu, no ooh la la!

(plus ça change)
Let’s go surfing now!
Everybody’s learning how
Come and wear Burkinis with me!
Come and wear Burkinis with me!
