Orinoco Flow & its exotic places

Orinoco Flow - this is a song I have heard many times but never quite knew the lyrics till a Facebook friend mentioned it in the light of my coming trip to Venezuela which Orinoco flows through. I googled and wow - the lyrics is full of mentioned of exotic places:
Listen to the song on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jC5aUDN6OoU
Here's the lyrics from http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/e/enya/orinoco_flow.html, with mention of places such as Tripoli, Yellow Sea, Bissan, Fiji, Peru, Cebu, Babylon, Bali, Cali, Coral Sea, Khartoum, Islands of the Moon (Comoros), Bissau and Palau:
Let me sail let me sail let the Orinoco Flow
Let me reach let me beach on the shores of Tripoli
Let me sail let me sail let me crash upon your shore
Let me reach, let me beach far beyond the Yellow Sea

Deh deh deh deh deh deh
Deh deh deh deh deh deh

Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From Bissan to Palau in the shade of Avalon
From Fiji to Tiree and the isles of Ebony
From Peru to Cebu feel the power of Babylon
From Bali to Cali far beneath the Coral Sea

Deh deh deh deh deh deh
Deh deh deh deh deh deh

Turn it up turn it up turn it up
Ah-ah-adieu ooh
Turn it up turn it up turn it up
Ah-ah-adieu ooh
Turn it up turn it up turn it up
Ah-ah-adieu ooh

Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From the North to the South, Ebudae unto Khartoum
From the deep Sea of Clouds to the Island of the Moon
Carry me on the waves to the lands I've never been
Carry me on the waves to the lands I've never seen

We can sail, with the Orinoco Flow
We can sail we can sail with the Orinoco Flow

We can steer we can near with Rob Dickins at the wheel

We can sigh, say goodbye
Ross and his dependencies
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

We can reach we can beach
On the shores of tripoli
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From bali to cali far beneath the coral sea
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From Bissau to Palau
In the shade of Avalon
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

We can reach we can beach far beyond the Yellow Sea
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

From Peru to Cebu
Hear the power of Babylon
We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway

We can sail we can sail
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Sailaway sailaway sailaway
Ahhh aahhh ah
Ahhh aahhh ah
Ahhh
