A holiday
A holiday
And the first one of the year
My head feels like a coconut
Skewered wiv a spear

(wiv thanks to Fairport Convention)
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

Gather weary travelers,
I have a tale to tell.
It might just save your lives but only if you listen well.
'Cause there before the breakers
And just around the way,
There's a sign that says,
"Beware The Beast of Pirate's Bay!"

Some say he's a guppy a kid threw in the sea.
He ate so many sailors, now he's bigger than a tree.
His teeth are sharp as scissors
His claws, they are like knives.
And if you think he's ugly, wait 'til you see his insides!


Oh, don't you sail and don't you row and certainly don't you swim,
'Cause if you aren't careful you'll end up inside of him.
He'll eat you up, he'll spit you out. You'd better stay away.
Heed the sign that says, "Beware the Beast of Pirate's Bay!"

Some say he's a serpent that came straight from hell,
He came to eat the souls of pirates and other ne'er-do-wells.
Some they don't believe it, as for me I've got a hunch.
'Cause they used to have some pirates here.
But he ate them all for lunch!



Well, Captain Hook, you've heard of him, he came to Pirate's Bay.
It seems his little nemesis had nearly got away.
He reached into the water to grab at Peter Pan.
There was a crunch and a scream!
And now that scurvy captain's got hooks on both his hands!


Well, Blackbeard the Pirate, you know for what he's feared.
It's mostly for the dark, imposing color of his beard.
He saw the beast and now nobody's scared of him because,
His beard turned white and all agree,
He looks like Santa Claus.



Well, now the tavern's empty and there's only you and me.
And if you care I'd like to share how this song came to be.
So come a little closer if you really want to know.
This very sad and woeful tale happened so long ago.

Well, I was just a little boy when I went to Pirate's Bay
And there I saw a creature that was very much dismayed.
With a harpoon in his dorsal fin and a hook stuck in his side,
This mighty whale was in such pain, we both began to cry.

I pushed and I shoved, but he wouldn't give way
Into the deeper waters off our shallow Pirate's Bay.
All I could do to help him was to keep people away,
So I wrote a sign that said, "Beware The Beast of Pirate's Bay!"
And what did it say?

Don't you sail and don't you row and certainly don't you swim,
'Cause if you aren't careful you'll end up inside of him.
He'll eat you up, he'll spit you out. You'd better stay away.
Heed the sign that says, "Beware."
Hell I should know, I put it there!
Heed the sign that says, "Beware the Beast of Pirate's Bay!"
Arghhhh!!!

That's awesome. You need to write socially relevant satire songs. Gimme lyrics and I'll do the music.

Our Chinese cook,
he grabbed all he could took,
He say, "no storm is stoppin' me!"
he made fricassee of a sea anemone.
Down at the bottom of the sea.
I turned to my first officer and i said,
"what have you got to say to me?"
well, he turned and said, "im in over my head."
down at the bottom of the sea.

A she-Kraken,
lurkin' under my men,
looked up at their legs hungrily.
She counted eight so she thought she found a mate.
Down at the bottom of the sea.
They kicked and they fought but it was all for naught
'cause she just wouldnt set 'em free.
She had them taught in a tight sailor's knot.
Down at the bottom of the sea.



Some men call to GOD, when their number's up.
Some cry for their mums.
I just lement all these barrels of wasted rum!

Seaman Shaft, we all knew he was daft.
His story dont end happily.
He drifted by with a fishgig in his eye.
Down at the bottom of the sea.
Down at the bottom was treasure galore,
but gaurding it so greedily was an angry horde of skeletons with swords
down at the bottom fo the sea.



Down at the bottom of the sea
we're at the bottom of the stuck at the bottom of the deep,
dark, crazy-assed fish dwellin',
between the devil and the deep blue sea.
Arghhhh!!!
