Charlie Tomberg's South Pacific Adventure - Friday, September 30, 2005 - Tanna, Vanuatu:

The signing and dancing continued with great energy. Initially, I heard the name "John Frum" repeated over and over in the lyrics, but after that I could not make anything else. When I asked, Asned said that they were singing about John Frum, but didn't translate the lyrics. We were later told by another guide from the hotel who lives in the village that they take current events that are happening in America and incorporate them into their songs.
