A Pirate’s Song

(to the tune of The Happy Wanderer)

I love to go a plundering
Among some rich man’s stash
And as I go I pirate all
His jewelry and cash
Val-der-ee, Val-der-ah
Val-der-ah, Val-der-ah ha ha ha ha ha
Val-der-ee, Val-der-ah
His jewelry and cash

I love to stand upon the deck
And sail upon the sea
And as I go I yo ho ho
A pirate’s life for me

Val-der-ee, Val-der-ah
Val-der-ah, Val-der-ah ha ha ha ha ha
Val-der-ee, Val-der-ah
A pirate’s life for me

I’m Feeling Fine

(to the tune of I Walk the Line)

I keep close watch on this flask of mine
I keep a bottle with me all the time
I have a taste for homegrown Muscadine
Thanks to the wine, I’m feeling fine

I find it very easy to drink from a shoe
I find myself on the floor each time I do
Yes, I’ll admit it makes me act the fool
Thanks to the wine, I’m feeling fine

As sure as beer is dark and wine is light
I find myself quite tipsy every night
And the empties in my trash prove that it’s right
Thanks to the wine, I’m feeling fine

I’d like a taste of merlot or champagne
I’ll take another taste by any name
I know you might think that it’s just a shame
Thanks to the wine, I’m feeling

I keep close watch on this flask of mine
I keep a bottle with me all the time
I’ll take domestic, French, or even ‘Strine
Thanks to the wine, I’m feeling fine
