Does the "yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me" (the disney pirates of the caribbean song) count?

If not, then I'd have to say "What shall we do with a drunken sailor?"
A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you a tough person. Even through many pirates have a reputation for not being the brightest souls on earth, you defy the sterotypes. You've got taste and education. Arr!

Benbow

Postby black bart on Wed Sep 26, 2007 8:49 am

Here be one o me favourites as it tells of our very own local:

The Admiral Benbow

Come all you seamen bold
and draw near, and draw near,
Come all you seamen bold and draw near.
It's of an admiral's fame,
O brave Benbow was his name,
How he fought all on the main,
you shall hear, you shall hear.

Brave Benbow he set sail
For to fight, for to fight
Brave Benbow he set sail for to fight.
Brave Benbow he set sail
with a fine and pleasant gale
But his captains they turn'd tail
in a fright, in a fright.

It goes on in much the same vein...we moight ave ta re-write it.

Arrrr I found a better one fer ye:

Saucy, sultry Wenches WE!
Waltzing through the Faire!
Merry and bawdy, big and bosomy,
Laddies all beware!

Kiss, kiss, kiss the Lads,
Lords and Himbos too!
Give ‘em a wubby with your bubbies –
Hope the wives don’t sue!

Strut, strut, strut your stuff,
Smiling all the while!
Give ‘em an inch and give ‘em a pinch,
And hope they take a mile!

pardon me while I excuse myself to visit the little pirates captainettes room afore I wets me pants again.

I'm partial to the one that begins

"The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright—
And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night."

and this one that be useful when I'm 'avin tha crew pump out tha bilges by 'and

He was a saucy sailor boy
Who'd come from afar,
To ask a maid to be the bride
Of a poor Jack tar.

The maiden, a poor fisher girl,
Stood close by his side;
With scornful look she answered thus;
I'll not be your bride.

You're mad to think I'd marry you
Too ragged you are;
Begone, you saucy sailor boy,
Begone you Jack tar.

I've money in my pocket, love,
And bright gold in store;
These clothes of mine are all in rags,
But coin can buy more.

Though black my hands my gold is clean
So I'll sail afar,
A fairer maid than you, I ween,
Will wed this Jack tar.

Stay! Stay! you saucy sailor boy,
Do not sail afar;
I love you and will marry you,
You silly Jack tar.

'Twas but to tease I answered so,
I thought you could guess
That when a maiden answers no
She always means yes.

Begone you pretty fisher girl,
Too artful are you;
So spake the saucy sailor boy,
Gone was her Jack tar.
My mantra
Just save the farkin Gorillas will you! They don't have spell check- but they do need YOU/US...

I'm *not* the lowest rank on this ship. What about the laboratory mice? I tell them something and they jump straight to it. "Yes, Mr. Lister Sir, eek,eek."

Politics

Postby black bart on Fri Sep 28, 2007 10:48 am

Arrrr...we needs a celebratory song to mark our acendancy over the Politics thread:

Oh Pirate chaps are we
We never touch the tea
We fart and burp
Our grog we slurp
All Accross the seven seas

Oh Politics is bollocks
Ye can stick it up yer rollicks
For a feisty wench
Or a hearty stench
On Pirates ye'll get yer licks
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.
