Subject: Lyr Add: THE SAILOR SONG
From: Charley Noble
Date: 16 Nov 09 - 04:52 PM

Here's an odd "nautical" song that I just harvested off the web; it may be from Vietnam or at least it's from a Vietnamese music website:

The Sailor Song

Racing all around the seven seas
Chasing all the girls and making robberies
'Causing panic everywhere they go
Party-hardy on Titanic

Sailing, sailing, jumping off the railing
Drinking, drinking 'till the ship is sinking
Gambling, stealing, lots of sex-appealing
Come, let us sing the sailor-song!


So if we all come together, we know what to do
We all come together, just to sing we love you
And if we all come together, we know what to do
We all come together just for you!

Sailorman, you really turn me on
Now the guys are gone, come and let us get it on
Girls like me are pretty hard to find
So if you go, I'll kick your Heine!

Sailing, sailing, jumping off the railing
Drinking, drinking 'till the ship is sinking
Gambling, stealing, lots of sex-appealing
Come, let us sing the sailor-song!


So if we all come together, we know what to do
We all come together, just to sing we love you
And if we all come together, we know what to do
We all come together just for you!

Now, let's fight!
Ha, that's not a knife, this is a knife!
eik!!!

Sailing, sailing, jumping off the railing
Drinking, drinking 'till the ship is sinking
Gambling, stealing, lots of sex-appealing
Come, let us sing the sailor-song!


So if we all come together, we know what to do
We all come together, just to sing we love you
And if we all come together, we know what to do
We all come together just for you, Oh yeah!

I'm king of the world! woohoo!
Wow, this was great!
Yeah, baby, you can sail my ship!

So if we all come together, we know what to do
We all come together just for you... Yeah!

We should try this at the next Mystic Sea Music Festival...

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

I'm guessing the "Hello Kitty World of Karaoke" site?

Here's the link to the website: click here for a knotty and nautical time!

Remember, you asked for it!

This amused me enough that I tried to find more information. Toy Box is a Danish duo: Anila Mirza and Amir Adam El-Falaki. Though they both grew up in Denmark, some of their songs are in Urdu. The "Sailor Song" is from their first album, "FanTastic."

Here's the official music video on YouTube, it is about as silly as you might expect:

Here's their website if anyone is interested in more of the same:

KathyW-

Thanks for nailing this one down. Years from now, I'm sure, Mudcatters would otherwise be debating the origins of this traditional nautical song.

Wheee!

Sailing, sailing, jumping off the railing,
Charley Noble
