Delayed (not) December (not daily) Doodles! Let's Cheer Her(a) Up! [Winners announced] Reply to this Post

Let's Cheer Her(a) Up!

It's time for that wonderful thing, the singing doodle! Today, I'd like you to sing for me; or at least, make some kind of musical approximation to singing. This year, we're going to try to cheer Hera up!

  • The song must include the phrase Hera wants a peacock pet somewhere.
  • You can choose the music and lyrics of any song you want as long as it includes the magic phrase. You can even use lyrics from any of your own previous entries (reworked).
  • You can sing unaccompanied, or you can provide your own accompaniment, or you can source your own (public domain) backing track, or you can record using a karaoke site.
  • We actively encourage you to get your family / friends / housemates involved joining in with the singing or backing noises accompaniment.
  • Upload your file to a web space or file hosting service, and copy the link for the file.
  • Make sure (get a mate to check) that your file can be accessed and played without signing in, registering, membership or delayed download!
  • I'm looking for good singing, yes, but also for a fun and enthusiastic performance appropriately representing the most fabulous people in the world - our Doodlers.


Other rules/information

  • Only one entry per player
  • Contest will finish at 11.00am 16 January
  • All entries must mention your pirate name, ocean and 'December Doodles 2017' before the song begins.
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline.
  • Please read the rules post before posting.
  • Have fun!

Seems like Hera is about to get all the help she could get for accomplishing her most heartfelt dreams of a pet Peacock!
I shall do my part in the propaganda and create this shameful song .

(Hopefully it doesn't kill the ears of any artists who need them in order to hear Hera's pleas.)

Lyrics:

Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think her collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think she's the goddess
Who's got everything

Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many trinkets can one cabinet hold
Lookin around here you think
Sure! She's got everything

She's got pets and familiars aplenty
From those big cats to pink unicorns
You want some Hera eggs? She's got 20!

But who cares
It's not fair
She wants more

Hera just wants her own peacock pet
A feathery friend dressed in blue and purple
Walking around on those - what do you call 'em?
Oh - Claws!

Asking the artists don't get you too far
Bring out some help from your fellow pirates
Understand that it's for a good - cause!

Watch as they dance
You'll be in a trance
All we need now is one single chance
To share common ground
With a peacock


(Based off Part Of Your World from The Little Mermaid)

Cattrin on Obsidian
Color: White

I did a reworking of [Bridget Flynn by the Irish Rovers]. Lots of pirate shanties have roots in Irish songs, so I thought it'd be a good fit. Unfortunately no karaoke versions exist and I left my tin whistle at home...

[In my version, Hera considers her options for approaching the artists about her problem.]

Lyrics:
I've a nice little ship and temples to the third.
I've a strong wind running through the sails.
I've a cabin for the Zeus and perches for the bird-
Now, what could Hera want more?

I don't know, maybe so,
But a goddess's life is easy and she's free.
But I've lots to look after, though I'm missing my best bird,
It was not something I could foresee.

The arrtists often tell me I should go and have a try
To find parrots that looks a bit less bland.
And I know, the way they say it, that there's some bird on their mind,
But Hera wants a peacock pet.

I don't know, maybe so,
But t'would aggravate them greatly to decree:
"Now, there's a new pet type, plumage elegant and full",
But they'd never have an eye for me.

Now there are pirate artists who're worth her weight in gold.
And they're a gracious lot, don't you see?
And I mean to go and beg them just as soon as I get bold,
If they'll come and make a pet for me.

Say they so? I don't know.
But I'd love to see them flying in the quay.
And I'd be... kind to Cronus as an added bonus.
If they'll come and make a pet for me.

Herowena of Cerulean
Navy

Based on "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"
Recording

Hera wants a peacock pet
This is something she should get
Every pirate should, in fact
Have the chance to interact
With a bird so full of grace
Though its voice is commonplace
(Though my voice is commonplace)

In my cozy pirate shack
There's a lot of bric-a-brac
Like a vase of peacock plumes
Shed from peacocks, one assumes
So we know they do exist
On this fact we must insist
(On this fact we must insist)

Arianne of Obsidian
Blue <3

Parody of I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers

Recording (Cover yer ears!)

When she gets up, she knows she's gonna be,
She's gonna be the goddess that gets through to you,
When she sails out, yeah, she know's she's gonna be,
She's gonna be the the one to go and convince you,
When the rum flows, well you know she's gonna be,
She's gonna be the one that's givin' rum to you,
Because she needs you, yeah, she needs you all to see,
That what she wants is best for me and you.

'Cause Hera wants a peacock pet,
A bird of colour that she can adore,
A new friend with which to sail the seas,
While the waves fall upon the shore.

When she's navving', upon a deep blue sea,
She's gonna be the one to bear down upon you,
Yeah she'll pillage, all yer stock, poe and booty,
If you don't help to make her dreams come true,
So together, (yeah together) now we are gonna see,
We are all gonna see this venture through,
So call yer crewmates, (yer crewmates!) to make this final plea,
A plea that reaches the gods of me and you.

'Cause Hera wants a peacock pet,
A bird of colour that she can adore,
A new friend with which to sail the seas,
While the waves fall upon the shore.

Forgive me bad singing, I get stage fright easily and also may have skipped some of me own words! >.<

Greyladyy of Cerulean
Parody of "Please Mister Postman"

Forgive the even-worse-than-usual singing as I have (mostly) lost my voice.....maybe if ye all are lucky it will stay lost! :)

Please Mister Art-man

"Please Mister Art-man"
A parody of The Beatles "Please Mister Postman"

Wait, oh yes wait a minute mister art-man
Wait, wait mister art-man

Mister art-man look and see
Is there a new pet coming out for me
I been waiting a long long time
To make a peacock a pet of mine

There must be some kinda way
For a peacock to come and play
Please mister art-man can it be
A fancy feather bird come here to me

I been asking every Christmas mister art-man
So-o-o patiently
Just want a peacock to make me feel better
I want the whole bird, not only a feather

Mister art-man look and see
Is there a new pet coming out for me
I been waiting a long long time
To make a peacock a pet of mine

So many times you turned me down
Made me cry and made me frown
You didn't draw to make me feel better
Not a peacock, not even a feather

So mister art-man look and see
Is there a new pet coming out for me
I been waiting a long long time
To make a peacock a pet of mine

Hera wants a peacock pet (x3)
You gotta make it for me, I beg on bended knee
Hera wants a peacock pet (x3)
Draw it much better than only a feather
Hera wants a peacock pet (x3)

Everyone here is a winner in my book, yarrr! All our outstanding performers earn a winter ornament, a celtic harp, a celtic drum, a fiddle for participating.

However, since the concept of doodles calls for a winner, we shall have them! The winner is Greyladyy of Cerulean, who in addition to the aforementioned shinies, takes a Clotho Egg and 5 Shiny Sun Points! Runner ups are Arianne of Obsidian and Herowena of Cerulean, both take one Shiny Sun Point each.

Prizes have been delivered.
