Thread Name: Origin: Sloop John B
Subject: ADD: John Dee (parody)

Went away on a sloop John Dee,
To get to where we meant to be
Left both the drunken hands alone on the scree;
Just Molly and me
Without the damn family
Just we two single-handing
The sweet old sloop John Dee

We raised up our own damn sail
   We saw her set for ourselves
   We left all the whiners on shore, staying at home
   We're off for to roam
    You can leave us alone!
    Over the horizon,
    Leave the whiners at home!
