The Lyrics

scurvy

i've got scurvy
my hair is thinnin'
black and blue spots
form on my shins
and my gums get spongy and grim
i'm achin' from scurvy

when i joined the sailor's world
i knew i must leave vegetables behind
and fruit just won't stay good, its true
when folks are sailin' on the boundin' brine
i need fruit, but none i get
these bleedin' membranes make me fret
it causes immobility in time

scurvy

i've got scurvy
no teeth, when grinnin'
seen no veggies
for days on end
and there's no way
its gonna mend
i'm achin' from scurvy

i finally got to gnaw some fruit
and totally relaxed, is how i felt
i've been cravin' frantically
and now, within my mouth, i feel it melt
seems i've lost all sense, you see
cause this scurvy's killin' me
it turns out i've been chewin' on some kelp

scurvy

i've got scurvy
my woes are many
like a white ghoul
pale, is my skin
its a cruel world
that i live in
i'm achin' from scurvy

At least you're not pervy writing about scurvy. TOS has always been a fun sing, so is the parody. 555
