Lorraine,

I learned this song a few years ago off of a tape a friend made for me, so I don't know the artist (who was female). Here's what I used for your missing words: Of course, you can just make up your own words to fill in, as well.

I find this a challenging song to sing, since the tempo is fast and there are lots of unusual words to get through. I presented it in a workshop called "Pirate Queens and Handsome Cabin Boys" which was devoted to traditional songs about transvestitism.
