I would be surprised if there were not a single song about ...

Buganvilla -

The scientist
The cabin-boy
The wife

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Getting "click-baited" on Mudcat for "female chanty" ...

I've heard of the flower la Buganvilla, usually known by the French spelling Bougainvillea, but not the others. Please enlighten, Garg.

Stan Rogers' "Lock Keeper" mentions bougainvilla blossoms.

Have I been 'caught'? :-)

No, you have been locked.

FWIW the flower ( wikipedia Bougainvillea) is tiny, what you see is colourful leaves or technically "three or six bracts".

AND...........

Loads of them apparently - lyrics.com - bougainvillea

I presume the allusion is to the domestic arrangements on board ship for Bougainville's circumnavigation of the world (which included the first woman to do it).

Bougainville was a remarkably talented guy, perhaps better at his job than Captain Cook.
