Subject: Friggin in the riggin (ANTHRAX'89 version)
From: gena@inko.viaduk.net

I found the original version of this song (Sex Pistols), but I need the Anthrax version. Album PENIKUFESIN, 1989.

It's in the DT: FRIGGIN IN THE RIGGIN.

I'm scandalized by the lack of apostrophes in the title.

The title has been mentioned many times in the forum, but there doesn't seem to be a thread about the song (besides this one).

Looks like a short extract from The Good Ship Venus

Actually, I belive they are parallel constructions.

Shocking? NOT!

The chorus at St Andrews University, ca. 1959, ran

Frigging in the rigging,
Wanking on the planking,
Buggery in the snuggery --
There's fuck-all else to do.

Courtesy of my first husband's hall of residence at Sheffield University in the late sixties, the lyrics I learned to "The Good Ship Venus" were in places worse than the ones linked to upthread from the Mudcat list. The cabin boy, for example "stuffed his arse/ with broken glass/ and circumcised the skipper". There was also:

The third mate's name was Carter
He was a musical farter
He could fart anything
from God Save The King
to Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.

I'm trying to picture Jim "scandalized." "Scandalized" is a nautical term which means that a sail is partly furled but is still being used to catch the wind. Perhaps, Jim would kindly provide us a link to how he looks scandalized.

I have fond memories of singing "Friggin' in the Riggin'" with my messmates aboard the good ketch "Stout Heart" back in 1965. It was one of the ways we made ourselves "welcome" in every harbor we dropped anchor in.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

scan•dal•ize - verb
1. Shock or horrify (someone) by a real or imagined violation of propriety or morality
- Their lack of manners scandalized their hosts
2. Reduce the area of (a fore-and-aft sail) by lowering the head or raising the boom
#1 is what I had in mind. I had never heard of #2.

The third mate's name was Carter
By God he was a farter
When the wind wouldn't blow
And the ship wouldn't go
Carter the farter would start her
