Little CTO (Caribbean Tourism Organization), You’re Really Lookin’ Fine…

Last night, I attended the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s (or CTO’s) “Rum and Rhythm” event in Toronto, organized by the fabulous Lynda Sinclair. 

It was a night of rum, music, food, and fun!  And even though I only had my crappy cellphone camera with me, I did my best to capture some snaps.

For some reason, the initials “CTO” (for Caribbean Tourism Organization) made the song “Little GTO” run through my head all night… so – I thought I’d play with the classic lyrics a little in writing about the evening (with apologies to Ronny and the Daytonas…  you know the song…)

Little CTO (Caribbean Tourism Organization), you’re really lookin’ fine
Three B’s (Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda) and four-saints (St. Lucia, St. Vincent, St. Kitts,  St. Maarten) and the US Virgins too (Sts Thomas, John, & Croix) 

Listen to her rhythm pop now, listen to her rum why-ee-eye-ine
C’mon and turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GTA (greater Toronto area)…

Wa-wa, (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”)
Wa-wa, (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”)
Wa-wa (“Ahhh, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

You oughta see her Caymans – go diving for a quarter mile
And little Miss Anguilla has got plenty of style
Antigua, Cuba, and Grenada really drives ’em why-ee-eye-ild
Don’t forget DR (Dominican Republic), PR (Puerto Rico), and the T&C (Turks and Caicos)-turn it up, wind it up, blow it out GTA

Wa-wa, (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”)
Wa-wa, (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”)
Wa-wa (“Ahhh, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa

Gonna save all my money (turnin’ it on, blowin’ it out) and check out CTO 
Get some shorts and some sunscreen (turnin’ it on, blowin’ it out) and I’ll be ready to go
Maybe take in some destination weddings (turnin’ it on, blowin’ it out) or some incentive groups – you never know (turnin’ it on,blowin’ it out), yeah, yeah


Now that I know how to make jerk chicken (thanks, Selwyn Richards), I’m the coolest thing around

Cause of little CTO, ain’t gonna be no cookin’ clown

When I turn it on, wind it up, blow it out GTA

Wa-wa, (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”)
Wa-wa, (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa (“Yeah, yeah, little CTO”)
Wa-wa (“Ahhh, little CTO”) wa, wa, wa, wa, wa, wa
