yarrr, i be busy, mateys

But I do have time to post some Talk Like A Pirate Day related lyrics.

Rated ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR for sex and violence. We pirates love that stuff.

Sex Pistols - Friggin in the Riggin

It was on the good ship Venus
By Christ, ya shoulda seen us
The figurehead was a whore in bed
And the mast, a mammoth penis

The captain of this lugger
He was a dirty bugger
He wasn't fit to shovel shit
From one place to another

Friggin' in the riggin'
Friggin' in the riggin'
Friggin' in the riggin'
There was fuck all else to do

The captain's name was Morgan
By Christ, he was a gorgon
Ten times a day he'd stop and play
With his fuckin' organ

The first mate's name was Cooper
By Christ he was a trooper.
He jerked and jerked until he worked
Himself into a stupor


The second mate was Andy
By Christ, he had a dandy
Till they crushed his cock on a jagged rock
For cumming in the brandy

The cabin boy was Flipper
He was a fuckin' nigger
He stuffed his ass with broken glass
And circumcised the skipper


The Captain's wife was Mabel
To fuck she was not able
So the dirty shits, they nailed her tits
Across the barroom table

The Captain had a daughter
Who fell in deep sea water
And by her squeals we knew the eels
Had found 'er sexual quarters

Friggin' in the riggin'
Friggin' in the riggin'
Friggin' in the riggin'
There was fuck all else to do


Aye, the Sex Pistols made a fine pirate jig. How could it not be so with a crew named the likes o' Johnny Rotten and Sid Vicious? Arrr.

I'm partial to "Anarrrrrchy in the U.K." and "Pretty (Polly) Vacant". And let's not forget: "Liarrrr"

Oh I GOTTA get that!

Argh! That shivers me timbers and calls me pot black. Free me guest's flippers so they's can drink me 'ealth.

Hey, it's cool enough you have Captain McAlister up now...

God, how I needed a Pirate song! I've been wandering around the office tossing out the mere handful of pirate phrases I know and there are only so many times you can pop your head into your boss's office and say AARRUUGGHH before he expresses his disappointment in your lack of creativity.

The starter's name was Arter,
By Christ he was a farter,
When the wind wouldn't blow,
and the ship wouldn't go,
We used Arter the farter to start 'er.

Ken, I believe that's from The Good Ship Venus

The Chorus:

"We sailed the good ship Venus,
My Lord you should have seen us.
The figurehead was a whore in bed,
And the mast, a throbbing penis."

Other verses out there?

What? Nothing from the "Pirates of Penzance?"
Arrr! More musical pirates ye never be seein! Nor hearing you God forsaken sons of sea hags!
Next week: Talk like a music pirate day. Be sure to make use of terms like "Napster," "Kazaa," and "Morpheus" ye limewire-y bastards!

Just another of those damned pedantic rants, but the lyrics aren't those of the Sex Pistols. This is a, dare we call it "traditional?", English song. I remember singing it in Bangkok, circa 1966, with identical lyrics.

And then there was "Strolling through the Park", to the tune of Humoresque... nothing but fornicating cats with syphilis, cats with piles. Those Brits can turn a funny phrase now and then...

Great tune!

The Anthrax cover from Penikcufecin was awesome too....

the tune is good, but the cartoon is best--it's at the end of 'The Great Rock n'Roll Swindle'
