The Lyrics

Sorry for the second submission. This one is cleaner with pacing. Now, about those stinkin' pirates:

(In Somalia pirates are kings
Then our ships meet here's what we say)

When grenades hit the sky that is not Captain Bligh
That's Somali
Think the world is your dime, on that boat full of slimes
That's Somali
Shots will ring tat-a-tat-a-ling, tat-a-tat-a-ling
And you'll cry for Mommy
Bombs will say have-a-real-nice-day, have-a-real-nice-day
Smashed like a mad Godzilla

As our bombs squash them flat and their bodies go splat
They're Tamales
We will dance on their graves for the way they behave
No lost love
If you try Pirate schemes our seals will have you
Fed to the morays
Excuse me, when you see, all the dead Somali
End of story

When they threaten mankind 911 still reminds
Crushed Somalis
If our boats start to fight you will never see light
That's a sure thing
Hear us sing U-S-A-is-king, U-S-A-is-king
And you'll sing "Mercy fella"
Your blood will say victory our way, victory our way
You low life salmonella
Great novella

As we sail on the seas and shots fly by like fleas
That's Somali
We will shoot down your boat with no glimmer of hope
You'll give up
We squash all pirate schemes, know that you will not
Feel our amore
Excuse me, but they'll see, when the seas are all free
Thank our country,(USA)

Thank our country

Mark, I agree with your comment above. One company recently paid a ransom of 3 million dollars for one of their tankers. It would have been far cheaper if they had fitted out their ships with rocket launchers and groups of mercenaries. They could have blown them out of the water as soon as they made their intentions known - and it would create new jobs!

Feed the salmonella to the morays. Great lines. My brother and I got into a dispute over how to handle the pirates. He wants to hang them, and I say throw them overboard. Looks like you're taking my side.

"Bombs will say have-a-real-nice-day" -- *Brilliant* irony, and 180-switch use of a tired cliché.... Props for including the intro, which many parodies of TOS don't. ... "for Mommy" is one syl. short of OS "Vita bella", and if that is the *only* nit that the world's premier professional nit-picker can find, well, that human perfection, Dude! 555+++

btw, feel free to return the favor and nit-pick any of my songs any time the urge strikes... don't dish it out if ya can't take it, ya know :) :) :)

Thanks, TT. I do not mind the nit-picks at all. I like to smooth out the parodies after posting, so I do appreciate the comments,,,

It's sad, but we can only edit them *before* posting - no "edit" button on this forum... sigh.. many's the time I've wished for one!

Dude, this song is the bomb!! This is one song that would end up in the history books in the future. I especially lobe the "tat-a-tat-a-ling" line in that song! Now that's amore! 555.

The problem with "pulled from the headlines" parodies is that when they're posted they're fresh and funny but looking back at them it's like reading a dated newspaper. This was but two years ago perhaps a year and a half but it seems so much older than that since so much has happened since then. Still not bad for what it was.

(Artistry) Pacing was excellent. I didn't think it was super-funny, but it was still really good!
Mark Scotti - April 10, 2011 - Report this comment
Thanks, Matthias(though it is dated, the pirating is still going on...)...Thanks to Blaydeman as well!

(Artistry) I dunno, this one didn't work for me. Maybe it was a bit too violent in the wrong way, maybe it's the fact I know nothing about Somali besides the fact that pirates apparently come from there, but this parody doesn't do anything for me. Pacing was great, though.

This one is certainly an interesting idea for this song. . .it may be 'violent' but its about a true real life problem that is unlikely to stop anytime soon, and something that doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. . .kudos

(Artistry) Nice OS title reference with "Feel our amore". Serious topic, fun parody!

When it comes to what happened in 1993, dragging bodies is a national past time in Somalia.
Sarge Salty - April 24, 2011 - Report this comment
Hi, nice parody. There is one element that's been overlooked. When the dictator Siad Barre was overthrown in early 1991 the victorious forces splintered and turned on each other. Somalia fell into anarchy and practically ceased to exist as a state. Tackling the pirates is tricky because there's no government or infinstructure to confront there. The pirates hit and run, just like the guerillas on the main land. It's hard to pursue and punish them. I knew someone in college who was in the 1993 war. It's really tough.
