By Jimmy Buffett, 1996 
Jimmy Buffett explores new creative ground here, putting the two-hundred year history of Amerigo, a fictitious Caribbean island, into a Calypso number, and framing it into another song, The Legend of Norman Paperman, the theme of the show. The principal singer is the Governor of the island, and the key characters of the show sing verses about the history. 
Narrator 
Kinja was the name of the island when it was British. The actual name was King George The Third Island, but the islanders shortened that to Kinja. Now the name in the maps and the guidebooks is Amerigo, but everybody who still lives there still calls it Kinja. The United States acquired the island peaceably in 1940 as part of the shuffling of old destroyers and Caribbean real estate that went on between Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Churchill. The details of the transaction were and are vague to the inhabitants. The West Indian is not exactly hostile to change, but he's not much inclined to believe in it. Meantime in a fashion Amerigo is getting Americanized. The inflow of cash is making everyone more prosperous. Most Kinjans go along cheerily with this explosion of American energy in the Caribbean. To them it seems like a new harmless and apparently endless Carnival.
Sanders 
Have you ever dreamed of escaping from your dull existence to a new life on a tropical island? Our story is about a man who did it - a real person, whose true adventure has become a legend here in the Caribbean. Welcome one and all to THE LEGEND OF NORMAN PAPERMAN. 
Ensemble 
Dis is the legend of Norman Papuhman 
Tale from the islands we'll share 
Chasin illusions can get quite confusin' 
Is it a dream or a nightmare 
Women 
Dis is the legend of Norman Papuhman 
Tale from the islands we'll tell 
Men 
Chasin illusions can get quite confusin' 
Cause heaven can turn into hell. 
Sanders [Sings] 
Kinja's the name of the island 
It's been Kinja for over two hundred years 
But remember paradise 
Doesn't come without a price 
Let me make that abundantly clear 
Kinja, our beautiful island 
In a windward archipeligo 
We've been English, French and Dutch 
Never seemed to matter much 
Now we're officially Amerigo 
Ensemble 
We're Kinja 
Still Kinja 
Our Kinja

Our ancestors came in the slave ships 
To work for the privileged few 
Who wore Paris fashions 
and lived in pink mansions 
While we huddled in shacks of bamboo 
Den da sugar beet bring us our freedom 
With the help of our God we got through 
Insurrection, beheadin's, funerals and weddin's 
Hurricanes and a World War or Two 
Chorus 
Hurricanes and a World War or Two 
We're Kinja 
Still Kinja 
Our Kinja 
We're Kinja 
Still Kinja 
Our Kinja

Mr. Churchill had to get some destroyers 
To put old hitler six feet below 
FDR he pulled a nifty 
Got our island for just fifty 
And do limeys dey pack up and go 
We dance through the streets in celebration 
Da fireworks dey light up da sky 
We got hotdogs and highways 
Got Fords and Chevrolets 
Not to mention the Forth of July

(Senator Pullman, the island's big enchilada) 
Senator Pullman 
Now the Yankees, they come wid der dollars 
It's a beehive of activity 
Sell dem crawfish and rum 
Keep dem dizzy and numb 
Oh we're liken' this prosperity 
We got new holidays for celebration 
We got new laws, but no one complies 
We got crawfish and mangos 
Calypso and tangos 
Ahhh, but we short on our watah supply 
Ensemble 
Mighty short on our watah supply 
We got the Carnival 
We love the Carnival 
The Kinja Carnival

Don't Stop The Carnival

And our story begins 
Dis is da legend of Norman Papuhman 
Tale from de tropics we'll tell 
Chasin illusions can get quite confusin' 
Cause heaven can turn into hell!
