-> "Wreck of the 'William Bligh'"
Original Song Title:
"Sloop John B" (MP3)
Parody Song Title:
"Wreck of the 'William Bligh'"
We boarded the "William Bligh"
My cloned seamen and I
Sailed the waves in search of a welcoming shore
A tropical strand
A place we could land
Unpack our gear and start training for war
High on the "Bill Bligh's" mast
Our battle flag is unfurled
If we control the sea lanes then we'll rule the world
The crew is well drilled
And if we don't get killed
My dreams of conquest will soon be fulfilled
A crew of seventy three
Who looked a whole lot like me
And shared my ambitions as well as the shape of my nose
A whale swam in sight
The lookout shouted "Port bow, there she blows!"
Break out the harpoon gun!
Put your backs to the oars
We'll sell this guy for a million when we reach Japan
A prize from the sea
A delicacy (Yum! Yum!)
Ten tons of sushi in little tin cans
I picked up my glass and spied
Lashed to the monster's side
A wooden leg and a bundle of waterlogged bones
I ordered "Retreat!"
"We'll all be dead meat"
"Reverse direction, and set course for home!"
The whale came about and then
He Jonah'ed a couple of men
The rest of the sailors were quaking in fear of their fate
"Dump all excess weight
Before it's too late!"
They grabbed their captain, gave me the heave-ho
They sailed into history
The "William Bligh" without me
A two hundred year old whale hard on their stern
A rescue boat came.
In hopes of shifting the blame,
I said "Call me Ishmael" (But that's not my name)
They call me "Ishmael", but that's not my name.
