"Gangplank To Heaven"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

There's a blighter who thought
He'd steal and not get caught
Now he's walkin' me gangplank to heaven

When he gets to its end
On his knees he will bend
But his words of regret we shall ig-nore

Arrrh, Arrrrrrh!
And he's walkin' me gangplank to heaven

There's a sign on me wall
Just to make very sure
Me crew knows penalties for gold-stealin'

When we caught this here crook
Like a songbird he sings
Tryin' to change our thoughts of his stealin'

Arrrh...it flakes me flounder
Arrrh...it flakes me flounder

There be feelin's I get
When I look to the west
And me spirit is cryin' for treasure

In me thoughts I see clear
Rings of gold through me ears
And the whorehouse where I take me pleasure

Arrrh...it flakes me flounder
Arrrh...it really flakes me flounder

And me hearties all croon
Salty sea-farin' tunes
And the piper will play for our pleasin'

And then soon there will come
A new keg of rum
And me hearties will bellow with laughter

If there's a rustle in me ship's hold
Let the alarm blow
It's some damn fool who's stealin' me gold

Yes there be one path ye shall go by
If ye steal me gold
There's no chance to change me mind - you're done

An' it flakes me flounder

Your death is coming at the end of
The gangplank I love
King Neptune's callin' you to join him

Poor blighter didn't heed me words, so,
Now he shall know
Me gangplank's doom for his thievin' sin

( instrumental )

And as we sail the sea so cold
Our Jolly Roger flag so bold
There walks the plank a thief we know
Who cries with fright and wants to show
How he wished he did not steal gold

And if we listen very hard
The moon illuminates his splash
Seawater cold receives his soul
Sinks like a rock in Neptune's hold

He's done walkin' me gangplank to heaven...

Arrrrg matey. Send that scruvy dog down to Davy Jones locker for his thievin' ways. Excellent parody JD. I predict a hit here.

This song sure deserves a parody, and you did a great job! It's perfect timing, since I just saw "Pirates of the Caribbean" yesterday! Was that your inspiration? And did you know that in some stores where guitars are sold, the signs read "No Stairway to Heaven"?
Johnny D - December 30, 2003 - Report this comment
Thanks Guy, Adagio, and Mari !

Mari - I haven't seen "Pirates of the Caribbean" yet, but it's on my list of movies-to-see ...... but even though I haven't seen it yet, it was, kinda-sorta, part of my inspiration for this parody. Guess with all the publicity around that movie, I must've had pirates on me mind, matey - aaarrrrrhhh !!!

I take it those signs mean the store's employees do NOT want to hear "Stairway To Heaven" over and over and over again, eh ?

Johnny D - A Pirate parody, ehh matey? Well, we'll see if 5 lashes x 3 will change your tune. The Captain, yes, well he IS a cruel man...cruel, but fair...Johnny D on the rolling sea...you sailed her well.

StH parodies aren't my favorites (probably because I'm just bitter about being unable to come up with a solid one myself), but I really like this one. And great job with the characterization, Johnny D(epp).

Still mind-blowingly good... I already voted last time, and I have this hunch that amiright only keeps track of who voted on what for so long, so I won't cheat and give you more 5s ;-).

Arrrh, Arrrrrrh, Cap'n JD? Love this Pirate Parody. And as a coincidence I just rented "Pirates of the Carribean" today. A subliminally motivated purchase, perhaps? Methinks mayhaps t'is some skullduggery afoot 'ere, matey...ahh...now t'is up to me to be as the Cap'n in me votin' duties...cruel, but fair...
