Subject: Group effort: Being a sailor is...
From: Greg B
Date: 14 Jun 07 - 02:40 PM

As a 'highly extensible folk song' I thought perhaps
a group effort towards another fun verse would be in
order:

So, chip in with your lines from here:

Being a pirate is all fun and games
Till somebody loses her virtue...

(or perhaps WHEN somebody loses her virtue)

Hint: It occurs to me that 'virtue' rhymes with 'hurt you'

Good god, of course I meant 'being a pirate is all
fun and games'... where's me head at? Joe, I Offer you
an opportunity to edit out my fox paw.

Sailor replaced by pirate. j-clone

Being a pirate is all fun and games
Till somebody loses her virtue...
But if you watch pirates on TV and films,
There's nary a pirate can hurt you...



Well, what the hell rhymes with virtue?

I added "Song Challenge" to the title since that seems to bed the title people use for such things. Right?

Till somebody loses her virtue

This 'cutlass' of mine will not hurt you" (much) ...

He's already lost his, while naming no names
Who's the paternity suit going to refer to?

Being a pirate is all fun and games
Till somebody loses her virtue
She suddenly turns round and exclaims
'My God! He looks just like Fu Manchu!'

'Oh no moi dear, you're not so lucky.
You see, this thing on my shoulder's a bird.
Don't you know we all carry a budgie -
Yes, its true, all the things that you've heard.'

'I'm a baddie - it has to be said
I just never have any fears.
And these things sticking out of my head,
Why of course they're me old buckin' ears.'

'I'll tickle yer ribs wiv me sabre,
I'll make you walk out on the plank,
And if this all sounds rather macabre
Don't worry, its only a prank.'

Her bosom, it heaved with her passion
For now she just wanted his bed
But the wind and the waves made her ashen
And she leaned over and chucked on his head.

And that was the end of the love match
Twixt Long John and his beautiful Meg
Although she could cope with his eye patch
She just cringed at the sight of his peg.

Can I go home now please?

It's not that easy being a pirate
Having to pillage and rape and other ordinary things
People tend to want you hanging cause you're
Taking all their pearls and diamond rings

It's not that easy being a pirate
Having to watch the horizon every day for sail
And it's either a rich merchantman, or an armed frigate
Riches, or a ropes end and left hanging in a jail

It's not that easy being a pirate
You try dividing jewels and rich spoils amongst your crew
They cant understand the quantities, or count it, mate
And they expect so much what can a captain do?

It's not that easy being a pirate
When the cannon balls are flying up your way
Ahhh the fighting gets you feeling kinda frightened
So you turn to drinking rum at the end of every day

It's not that easy being a pirate
Having to end an argument by killing half your crew
It wasn't about treasure or a woman made them irate
But the fact that the cook served up cold stew

I'm Barnacle Bill-o the pirate of fame
With a cutlass and eye-patch to show
Me crew is ashore and now I'll do the same
Now where did them scurvy sods go?

Buccaneers! Buccaneers!
Oh Where are me old buccaneers?
Avast! Who said that? - They ain't under me hat!
I'm searching for my buccaneers

Being a pirate is all fun and games
Until somebody loses her virtue,
For then he will claim it was not him to blame--
"You coerced me, you harridan flirt, you!"

So away 'cross the main he will fly once again
All the sins of the world to enjoy,
Leaving you in the rain with a babe to maintain
While he buggers a young cabin boy.

BEING A PIRATE
(Don Freed). 1985; New words and arrangement: Tom Lewis. 2003

Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses an ear,
It drips down your neck then it falls on the deck,
'Til someone shouts: "Oy! What's this 'ere?".
You can't wear your glasses, you can't 'pull' the lasses,
And folks have to shout so you'll hear,
Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses an ear.

Chorus: It's all part of being a pirate (A pirate! A pirate!),
You can't be a pirate with all of your parts,
It's all part of being a pirate (A pirate! A pirate!),
You can't be a pirate with all of your parts.

Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses an eye,
It stings like the blazes, it makes you make faces,
You can't let your mates see you cry.
A dashing black patch will cover the hatch,
And make sure your socket stays dry,
Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses an eye.

Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses a hand,
It squirts and it spurts and it jolly well hurts,
Pain only a pirate could stand,
The fashionable look is a nice metal hook
But then you can't play in the band.
Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses a hand.

Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses a leg,
It hurts like the dickens, your pace never quickens,
Hopping around on a peg,
Ask your sweetheart to marry, but too long you've tarried,
'Cos now you can't kneel down and beg,
Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses a leg.

Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses a 'wotsit',
Though you didn't choose it, you don't want to lose it,
You're hoping that somebody spots it,
Then the 'Doc' comes along and he sews it back on,
Or he ties it on tight then he knots it!
Being a pirate is all fun and games, 'til somebody loses a 'wotsit'.

It makes me quite irate -
You can't be a pirate -
With all of your parts!
