[Event] 2018 December (not) Daily Doodle: 'Twas the Night Before... Singing! Winners Announced! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote




'Twas the Night Before... Singing!


Today, we uphold that time-honored pirate tradition to sing a shanty at any possible opportunity.

* First, choose a holiday song you like and tweak the lyrics to make them piratey style.
* Round up friends, relatives, and possibly complete strangers
* Perform the song, with your friends and relatives helping out AND adding anything piratey to the performance ("I'm dreaming of a white Christmas (chorus of YARRRRRR!)", "Come, they told me pa-ru-pu-pu-pum (chorus of RUM! RUM! RUM!", etc)
* Rehearsal is optional, but recommended
* 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.
* Record yourself somehow
* 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 a fun and enthusiastic performance that spreads enjoyment. I'm also looking for heart-felt piratey additions to the song!

As a reminder, please read the general rules before posting.

Your post should include:
* Pirate name and ocean
* Link to your recording
* Your lyrics
* You may also choose to give a shout-out to your singing minions.

This contest will run from Thursday to Thursday, to give everyone a chance to faint and recover.

Go Doodle!

Cattrin on Obsidian

Deck the Halls (now over 50% rum!)
Deck the halls with barrels of rum
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
'Tis the season to drink rum
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
Don we now our Yule-tide chalice
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
Line the walls of every palace
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum

[Verse 2]
All the golden drink before us
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
It is nearly superfluous!
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
Spiced with vanilla, mango, plum,
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
Some are flavored with more rum!
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum

[Verse 3]
A cup of cheer in every hand
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
Drink till we no longer stand
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
A pirate Christmas, always grand
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum
Break out the rum acoss the land!
Rum-rum-rum-rum, rum-rum-rum-rum

As is tradition, you can barely hear me. :P One day I'll rally the crew and get them to sing louder than I can!

Link to the sound of... you might wish it was silence .

I Want a Hippopotamus (Pet) For Christmas
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a hat, no stripey knicker clothes
I want a hippopotamus to walk and talk and pose
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
I don't think Santa Claus will mind, do you?
He won't have to use a hired-swabby sloop
Just whisk him to my cabin
That's the easy thing to do
I can see me now on Christmas morning
Waking in the cold
Oh what joy and what surprise
When I open up my eyes
To see a Hero Hippo in the hold
I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
I have crocodiles and octopuses
I only need hippopotamuses
And hippopotamuses need me, too!

Had so much fun with this one!!

Tothemoonn, Emerald Ocean

Description: The holiday classic "Little Saint Nick" with Santa's sleigh reimagined as a festive sloop! The whole song is done a cappella, all parts sung by me (I guess that counts as accompanying myself?? Next time I'll have to find some friends!)

Lyrics:
Oooooooo
Merry Christmas Saint Nick
Christmas comes this time each year

Well way up north where the sea gets cold
There's a tale about Christmas
That you've all been told
And a real famous cap'n suited up in maroon
And he spends the whole year workin' out on his sloop

It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)
It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)

Just a little old ship we call the old Saint Nick
But she'll speed like a trike-y, man she's lightning quick
She's holiday red with a wreath for a wheel
And when Santa fills the sails man just watch her peel

It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)
It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)
