Karate PartyKarate PartyKarate Party

Marissa tried some karate, Amy was picked up and dropped into the party! (The guy in red is an Aussie called Matt)
It started with daquiris, they got us in the mood,
Then a bus ride to Chatty and Blake made us some food.
We stocked up on beers then a short taxi ride,
Waiting at the bus stop, sitting side by side.
We arrived at the party and knocked on the door,
And added our shoes to the pile on the floor.
Some Aussies, some Kiwis and Japanese brides,
This is who greeted us when we walked inside.
A house warming party, an Australian plant we brought,
Us bloody loud Aussies, or so others thought.
Thrown out of the party, the neighbours too close,
So Blake entertained us throwing his bike into posts.
Walking down back streets without a care,
Blake couldnt resist Haren's dare
Straight up the wall and into a tree,
It could've turned into a drunken tragedy.
Busting to go and no toilet in sight,
Sweet talked the hotel guy, we made his night!!
A bar next to 'Boozer' and another round of beers,
'Kampeii' in Japan is how you say 'cheers'!
For singing and water fights and a little more booze,
To karaoke we went where Marissa had a snooze.
Laughing and joking as we walked out the door,
And to our surprise, it was night time no more!
The streets were so quiet, noone was there,
Marissa curled up and had a sleep on a chair.
Then she woke up and tried some karate,
Amy saw her on the ground so fell into the party.
Time for some breakfast, Royal Host was the go,
At 6 in the morning we saw people we know!!
A steak, a club sandwich, a beer and some fries,
And again Marissa lay down and closed her eyes.
Into a cab, bed just out of reach,
When someone suggested, "Let's go to the beach"
A beautiful morning, life it was grand,
Marissa all alone went to sleep on the sand.
The water was sparkling, the waves crashed around,
We practised our golf swing with two fishermen we found.
We waited at Family Mart, the cab took its time,
And now we are coming to the end of our rhyme.
Arrived home at nine, what more can we say?
This was the night we called it a day.
