GUEST, Help:- Need a pirate song (31) RE: Help:- Need a pirate song 11 Sep 02

I recently wrote a pirate song, expanding on the wonderful "Pirates of Penzance." In PoP only the first verse and the chorus of the following are original; the rest I added. Lots of potential action that the kids would like (e.g. "bop on the head" ....) Like it?


Llewellyn Toulmin 2002 Borrowing on the Original Verse and Chorus By Gilbert and Sullivan

With cat-like tread Upon our prey we steal In silence dread Our cautious way we feel. No sound at all, We never speak a word, A fly's foot-fall Would be distinctly heard!


Come, friends, who plough the sea, Truce to navigation Take another station. Let's vary piracee With a little burglaree!

To London's bower Now we all shall sneak. Into the Tower We shall take a peek. We'll steal no fakes It is a little cruel What shall we take? Why, the British Crown Jewels!


Beefeaters will Try to halt our crime. We'll hold them still By asking them the time. Then a bop on the head, They'll crash to the floor, Now they're in bed We're at the golden door!


We'll take the key From our sleeping friend. Now we'll see Our theft through the end. The doors open wide Edward's crown look fine They cannot hide. These Jewels are mine!


I look so sleek In my crown divine With class I reek My diamond earrings shine. The crime scene we'll leave But a pirate ship's for rubes No need to grieve -- We'll simply take the Tube!


Now we've done This world's greatest crime What more fun Can we have in our time? Our next spree Will settle all our fates We'll steal the key To the Pearly Gates!
