Disney Cruise based poem needed ...

Please help!!
I'm getting married on the WBTA in 2014 and need to have my invitation worded by Friday.

I've got the main bits done (our names!!), but I really want an informal/funny poem to add to it .. this would be the bit that would normally say 'you are cordially invited' etc.

The words I'd like included are a selection from these (plus more obviously):
Joa
Mick
Dodgy dancing
Disney
Magic
Vows
Jenga ()
Wedding
Cocktails
Ship
Islands
Cabins
Kiss/es/ing
Invite
Join
Friends/Pals/Buddies/Mates
Marriage
Drinking
Toast

If any of you can help me in any way, I would be very grateful .... I've postedit here in the DCL bit as you guys know the ships and know why we're getting married onboard. Hopefully it will help with the poem.

I'd like it to be funny and informal rather than sensible ... I am very informal!!

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me!

Joa

Sing to the tune of “Here Comes the Bride” if you dare…

Here comes the ship
With Jo-a and Mick
Dody dancing, with soft and glowing shtick
Lovely to see, marching to thee
a-Magic sailing for all eternity.





I could go on… I can do a mean Beverly Hillbillies rendition.

Thank you!
It was going to be on the Fantasy in 2015, but the price of the Transatlantic was amazing so we have around 60 family and friends on it so far.

It's gonna be a blast!

What about a take on the "Gilligan's Island" theme... with a very different ending, of course.

It's mostly spoken anyway so you could take lots of liberties with the wording.

Good luck! Sounds fun!

Shtick is a comic term meaning a funny act or routine. I just think this was an accidental misspelling of the work stick. A glow stick.

schtick is a yiddish term usually applied to "bit of business" as in comic routines however it was mispronounced a "stick" by Barry White in "never gonna give you up" song.....quittin' just aint my stick

anyhow, thats the whole thing in a nutshell, bubula!

Needs a little work. I put the words to the Gilligan's Island tune to keep it going. Here goes. Let me know what you think.

Not Great!!!

Just sit right back and hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip,
That started from this tropic port
Aboard a Disney Ship.

The Captain held a sail away
With Joa, Mick and frends
They all set sail on their Wedding Cruise
Aboard the Magic Ship (aboard their Magic Cruise)

The vows were said, the kiss was made
Cocktails and drinks were poured
Dodge dancing, toasts with all their mates
Before their cabins rest (before the cabins rest)

The ship stopped off at Castaway,
Disneys island of retreat
Had a Pirate Night
saw Mickey Too
Here on their Magic Disney Cruise.

is an older comedy tv show in the US. About a crew of two sailors taking 5 customers on a 3-hour tour. By the way, the boat get's stranded on an island. They all become castaways! Look up Gilligan's Island Intro to hear the tune. SHould be able to pull up previous episodes also.

Well I'm super-weird, but I'd do a series of Haiku.

(assuming that Joa is two syllables?)

Joa, Mick, kissing
Lovely islands and sea days
Disney Cruise Wedding

Cocktails, drinking, toasts
Dodgy dancing, friends, jenga
you are invited
