The Lyrics

I's sailing my dinghy to the sea.
It weren't dry, and it vanished with me.
I'd drowned (I'm sea-ly drowned)
I'm drowned (and can't be found)
I'm drowned (can't see me. . .drowned).

So my heirs laugh, 'cause they know I'm drowned.
"Show me the cash!" they crow 'cause I'm drowned.

Damn boat sinks in the wave-swollen bay;
In the drink went my craft--sank away.
I'd drowned (I'm sea-ly drowned)
I'm drowned (not on the ground)
I'm drowned (to Davey. . .drowned).

So my heirs hatch plots because I'm drowned
To get the cash they'll blow 'cause I'm drowned.

Sank like a stone because water-engulfed;
Stifled moan from the water I gulped.
I'm drowned (I'm sea-ly drowned)
I'm drowned (drowned in the sound)
I'm drowned; these creeps have found. . .

They'll get my cash, 'cause they know I've drowned;
They'll get my stash of bucks, Euros, pounds. . .

Gonna blow it--I'm drowned (in the sea drowned)
Gonna blow it--these clowns will reap my mound
Mound of bucks, pounds (me in the sound)
Get my dough 'cause I'm drowned (and not around)
Drowned. . .clowns. . .mound.

Loved this one ... triggered (mostly) fond memories of some fun (but some less so) small boat capsizes my sailing adventures include. :-)

pacing was water-tight...especially liked the engulfed / gulped rhyme

Hey, , , , take it easy Captain Queasy! Why so blue, Sir ? Perhaps a playful kitten mistress, to get you over your distress, Pirate Jack ?

Thanks, Stan, Alvin, Lips.

If you were drowned, then you wouldn't have written a parody and submitted it to AmIRight to tell the whole world about it. Seriously, a great job, as I usually expect from regular contributors such as yourself, and you get 5s straight across.
