(music begins)


Well, come on all o'ye big strong lads!
Muscle-man, bring yer bulk an' bad!

We got ourselves such a terrible flag!
Sail out yonder an' steal 'n brag!

So put on yer hooks
And pick up yer guns,
We're gonna have a whole lotta fun!


And 'tis one, two, three,
Watery fights galore!
YO-HO !!
Avast ye, my boat's hit a snag!
Hoist up that pirate flag!

And it's five, six, seven,
Ropin' up a surly mate!

Well,
It ain't no crime to plunderize!
BOOT-Y !!
We're all rum-supplied!


Well, come on blighters, raise that sail!
Swab me deck an' swab me rail!

Gotta go out and get that gold!
The only good pirate is the one who's bold!

And y'know them pieces of eight'll come,
When y'lock an' load an' show yer gun!


And 'tis one, two, three,
Watery fights galore!
YO-HO !!
Avast ye, my boat's hit a snag!
That's Jolly Roger's flag!

And it's five, six, seven,
Ropin' up a surly mate!

Well,
It ain't no crime to plunderize!
BOOT-Y !!
We're all un-good guys!


ARGH !!


Well, Spanish Galleons sure move slow
Aye man, they be all full o'gold

There's plenty good money to be made,
By defying the Navy with the tools of our trade!

Just load an' aim at ev'ry floating bank,
And thank 'em as they walk our plank!


And 'tis one, two, three,
Watery fights galore!
YO-HO !!
Avast ye, my boat's hit a snag!
Hoist up our skull-bone flag!

And it's five, six, seven,
Ropin' up a surly mate!

Well,
It ain't no crime to plunderize!
BOOT-Y !!
We're gold-hungry guys!


Well, come on brothers throughout our band!
Cabin boys? One for ev'ry man!

Come on lubbers, don't hesitate!
Join us now before it's too late!

Be the first one on your block,
To have a shoulder-parrot who talks!


And 'tis one, two, three,
Watery fights galore!
YO-HO !!
Avast ye, my boat's hit a snag!
There's Roger's Jolly flag!

And it's five, six, seven,
Ropin' up a surly mate!

Well,
It ain't no crime to plunderize!
BOOT-Y !!
We're all rum-drunk guys!

" AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGH !! "

Aye, matey, this Parody ye have written...aye, it be most hysterical...ye had me wailin' like a woman in fits of laughter and me eyes they did begin to waterin' up...even me glass one! I stamped me foot so hard on the deck here, aye, I nearly shattered me peg, I did...aye. Aye, and was good to see ye usin' one of 'ole' Country Joe McDonald's tunes here on the site...if he weren't so peaceable, aye, he might well have been a Pirate, too. Usually when somebody look at me funny I'd soon be slittin' their gillet...aye, but ye parody, well...it liked to send me off me plank I laughed so hard. 5's, matey...

"Be the first one on your block to have a shoulder parrot that talks" - I love it! I'm going to forward this one to all my pirate friends (oh, yes I do have some!) and prepare to be boarded...heh.heh. Oh, and Johnny, you get fives.

DKTOS, JD...but this WAS fun! Are you and Pirate Paul sharing buccaneering duties nowadays? I'll trust your pacing and give you 555 doubloons.

ah yes, there it is - I tried clicking on this yesterday and the link didn't work - I've just parodied this to an Aussie Rules theme elsewhere - great OS - but none of my subs were as good as "watery fights galore" - lol JD - 555

Saw this yesterday, meant to read it, got distracted, came back today. What's a pirate's favorite consonant? RRRRRRR. Fives for your eye-patched, peg-legged treatment of a funny OS.

AFW: Aye, a funny sea as far as yer eye CAN see!

Rrrravyn Rrrrant: Invite yer pirate friends on-board here & let 'em ARRGH along with me jolly crew!

Red Ant - July 28, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Excellent work here Johnny D! I never knew TOS' correct name or author (for some reason "Vietnam" by Arlo Guthrie is what I knew this song by) until now. A lot of great subs, and a wholly original song to go with!
Stuart McArthur - July 29, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) you're so good with your syllable-matching to the OS, Johnny (eg. Ropin' up a surly mate) that you make it look so easy that its difficulty can be underestimated - but it just makes it SUCH an easy read if you know the OS, because it's almost like it IS the OS - brilliant

(SOTM)...and really bad eggs...drink up, me hearties, yo-ho! Well done!
Phil Alexander - July 30, 2006 - Report this comment
Typically, I d/l'd the OS but with my complete lack of internet connection at home now I haven't been able to listen to it at the same time as reading this... so I guess I'll have to trust you on the pacing ;-) A rollicking ride, as always, JD
