Poo Towns of NZ - Katikati

Rock Drive 24/02/2020

Seeing as the big dog Rog was on air all day on Friday. Jeremy thought we should give his home town the treatment in this weeks Poo Towns of NZ.

This one's for you Katikati!

 

Lyrics below - 

 

Hey look at that statue - statue of an old man

He’s sitting on a chair and his name is Barry

So many murals - 66 at last count

The biggest attraction in Kati-kati

So many dentists, and lots of hairdressers,

For a town this small it might seem kind of dumb

Who’s the old man stealing plants from Hammer Hardware 

On his motor scooter taking some

 

They got some opshops with second hand records

One or two bucks for vinyl music is okay

Dave Gallagher was first All Black Captain

Did you know he’s from Katikati?

 

Avocados, kiwifruit, and big cucumbers

Yes, they are the biggest in N-Z

There’s potholes and roadworks, but there is no bypass

It’s been promised since some time last century

 

The only place that has an AA sign

With Naturist Campground and it leads to some C&B

No wonder Roger Farrelly likes it

The biggest creep from Katikati

 

Katikat Bird Gardens, highly recommended

And the current hometown of old Ben Hurley

The local high school, they just changed their motto

Used to be Failing Our Students Horribly

And over summer, pedestrian traffic lights

Are backing up the traffic far as you can see

Close to the Kaimais, and rivers and beaches

And it is the gateway to Bay Of Plenty

 

A park that’s full of haiku poems

A sculpture of an elephant seal that’s called Humphrey

A methlab behind the Indian Food Place

And Countdown’s busy in Katikati

 

I want Kat

I want Kat 

I want Katikati
