2/25/2010 - 1Just4Fun

I featured 1Just4Fun back on January 5th. As I am running really short on time, I will introduce the song and run today :)

This song is called, "The Pirate" and retells the sad story of a pirate and the unfortunate happenstance of how he lost many body parts. I hope you enjoy.



Lyrics
Long ago there was a pirate from a rough motley band;
Had a peg leg, had an eye patch, had a hook for a hand.
Sure and one day someone asked him how he lost all his parts.
Well he heaved a great sigh and then this story he starts.

We attacked a Spanish galleon on a dark, moonless night.
I was climbing up a grapple to get into the fight.
Someone reached out from a port hole and he hacked off me leg.
But they patched me up right smart and they gave me this peg.

That’s how I lost it. I think they tossed it
Over the side and into the sea.
I didn’t mind it, but if you find it,
Do me a favor, just let it be.

Well, the next one was a merchant on a cold blustery day.
I was climbing up a grapple to get into the fray.
Someone reached out from a port hole and me left hand he took.
But they patched me right smart and they gave me this hook.

That’s how I lost it. I think they tossed it
Over the side and into the sea.
I didn’t mind it, but if you find it,
Do me a favor, just let it be.

First a leg and then a hand, arrr. Curse the luck said the crew.
But to also loose and eye, man, well we curse that luck too!
How’d you lose it? In a battle? In a terrible gale?
Well, the pirate he glowered then went on with his tale.

I was lying on the fore deck trying to catch me some sun,
When a sea gull drifted over and his business he done.
I was happening to look up then, having heard his loud cry.
And the load he was dropping hit me square in the eye.

Kinda gross now, said the boatswain. but it ain’t all that bad.
And it’s surely ain’t enough to make you lose your eye lad.
Oh ya think so? roared the pirate, It’s enough, yes, and more
If you just got your hook done on the evening before.

That’s how I lost me leg and that’s how I got this hook
if you hear sea gulls callin’
Mark my word don’t you look!
