"This Tub Is Helmed By You"

Parody Written by:

John A. Barry

The Lyrics

This tub is helmed by you—
You’re Captain Bligh ’n’
You wretch, you strop all of the crew,
And we’re cryin’,
Cryin’ and dyin’.

You know, we can’t stand it
When you’re comin’ ’round.
And you withhold brandy. . .
When we dance a hornpipe, shan’t fall down.

Let’s overwhelm him, crew—
Now is the time!

We hate you!
We loathe you!
We’ll fix you!
We’ll put you in a scow.

With little fare
To drink and to eat.
That’s how ’tis now. . .
You hear us!

So, bub, “To hell with you!
Go suck some brine!!”

This was slick!

It ain't easy bein' a Captain (hic) ... just ask Gilligan's Skipper -- but everyone blames us for every teensy thing they don't like. Still, I bow to your stern rebuke, and sup-port the fact that we have a parody star-(on)-board. A cat-o-555-TTails to you.
