Re: YPP's Greatest Hits! - Entry Thread (Deadline July 20th)
Pirate name: Hawkings
Ocean: Viridian
Name of original event: Medira's Piratey Song Parody Contest!
Link to the original event thread: Contest Link

Original Song Title: Macho Man
Original Artist: Village People

I do feel I should comment briefly on my parody. When I searched the internet for Lyrics, I was unable to find a set that perfectly matched the version I was listening to to make sure everything scanned. Yes, I admit it, I do have the Best of the Village People album. So I linked in the lyrics I think best match my version. In the original version the lead singer echos many of the lines from the group chorus and my version should be done the same way. In a few places I've included parody versions of the under voice that I feel fit well that are not included in the online lyrics but are in the original recording. Also I did find an online karaoke website, SingSnap, that has a version that anyone not familiar with the song may listen to it. This version is not by the Village People and isn't the full version but it will give you the beat and rhythm of the song. So sit back, get funky and enjoy a piratey trip back to the time when disco was king.

 
Fearsome Pirate Lord
by Hawkings

Booty, gonna steal some booty.
Booty, (matey) don't conceal that booty.
Booty, gonna raid some booty.
Booty, (matey) getting' paid with booty.
Booty, lookin' out for booty.
Booty, (matey) Find a route with booty.
Booty, Searchin' bout for booty.
Booty, Sailin' out for booty.

(Avast there.)

Every mate wants to be a fearsome pirate lord
And rake in all the booty, for his massive hoard
Sailin' on the oceans, lootin' gold
Leavin' no survivors, so I'm told
You had best accept that, he's a pirate lord
Ready to deal death with, his mighty pirate sword

Har! Har! Har, har, har!
Fearsome pirate lord (pirate lord)
I'm gonna be, a pirate lord
Fearsome pirate lord
I'm gonna be, a pirate! Rawr....

Fearsome pirate lord
I'm gonna be, a pirate lord
Fearsome, pirate lord (yarr, harr)
I'm gonna be a pirate!

Booty, wanna spot more booty
Booty, (matey) love to plot, for booty,
Booty, sail the seas for booty,
Booty, (matey) gonna seize more booty,
Booty, go to war for booty,
Booty, (matey) wanna score more booty,
Booty, not enough, more booty,
Booty, (matey) gotta love more booty

You can tell a pirate, he has a swanky walk
His fancy boots and britches, causes mates to gawk
Flashy with his tunics, he's the king
Wearing feathered hats and lots of rings
You had best accept that, he's a pirate lord
Offer your devotion, and give him your accord

Har! Har! Har, har, har!
Fearsome pirate lord
I'm gonna be, a pirate lord
Fearsome pirate lord
I'm gonna be, a pirate! (that's right)

Fearsome pirate lord, (yarr, harr)
I'm gonna be, a pirate lord
Fearsome, pirate lord
I'm gonna be a pirate! That's right!

Booty, booty, booty gonna steal some booty,
Booty, booty, booty don't conceal that booty,
Booty, booty, booty sail the seas for booty,
Booty, booty, booty gonna seize more booty,


Every mate cannot be a fearsome pirate lord,
And lead a crew of pirates, and never be ignored,
Making all before him bow and kneel,
Possessing strength and honor and nerves of steel
You had best accept that, he's a pirate lord
And offer to surrender when e'er he comes aboard.

Har! Har! Har, har, har!
Fearsome pirate lord (pirate lord)
I'm gonna be, a pirate lord
Fearsome pirate lord
I'm gonna be, a pirate! (I've a hook for a hand)

Fearsome pirate lord, (see my cool familiars)
I'm gonna be, a pirate lord
Fearsome, pirate lord
I'm gonna be a pirate! (big hoop earrings)

Fearsome pirate lord (I've an eye patch)
I'm gonna be, a pirate lord
Fearsome pirate lord
I'm gonna be, a pirate!

Fearsome pirate lord
I'm gonna be, a pirate lord
Fearsome, pirate lord
I'm gonna be a pirate! Yarr!
