As I recall, Skip Gorman has also recorded it, with a yodel instead of the "Yo Ho." I love Finestkind's singing, but the yo ho makes it sound like they can't decide if they're singing a sea chanty or a cowboy song. But maybe that's the effect they wanted.

If you ever wanted to be convinced of the importance of proper punctuation in language, consider the difference between "Yo Ho!" and "Yo! Ho'!"
