    Victoria sailing to radio and TV commercial, late 1970s Hey Yay Yay

    Does anybody remember hearing on the radio, back in the late 1970s, or even seeing on KOMO, KING, KIRO or KCPQ, a song commercial, about Victoria, that went like this:

    "Hey yay yay, let's go to,
    Victoria!
    To the Princess Marguerite!"

    It was a very fun and exciting song!

    Respectfully,
    Tim McGee.

    They played that jingle relentlessly on CFAX back in the day.
    Better to remain silent...

    "Take a Princess to sea,
    take a princess to sea,
    have a crumpet and tea,
    have a crumpet and tea.
    She’s fun aboard – all the way,
    sail away for the day,
    hey,hey, hey – let’s go to Victoria on the Princess Marguerite".

    I got HUNGRY for a crabpit, recollecting that song!

    Hujacking my own thread, where CAN I go for a good Crabpit and Tea?

    This song is the Canadian version of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish song! (Similarity in tune)
