I have a friend in Thailand
His name is Ty One.
He makes tie-dyed Thai ties.
I have another friend in Taiwan
His name is Ty Two.
He makes tie-dyed Taiwanese ties.
Each year we meet to compete and tie one on in Taiwan.
I am the timer of the mai tai drinking
And tie-dyed Thai and Taiwanese tie tying contest.
I drink my mai tai while they tie my tie.
Ty One tries to tie my tie-dyed Thai tie faster than
Ty Two can tie my tie-dyed Taiwanese tie.
It was hard for Ty One to tie my tie-dyed Thai tie
While drinking Ty Two's mai tai.
It was hard for Ty Two to tie my tie-dyed Taiwanese tie
While drinking Ty One's mai tai.
I checked the time for my tight Thai friend Ty One
And the time for my tight Taiwanese friend Ty Two too.
It was a mai tai-influenced tie-dyed Taiwanese and Thai tie tying tie!
