Nu Casino invites you to compose parody lyrics to the tune given below in the next two hours. At 5PM Pacific this thread will close and judging will begin!

You can do as few or as many verses as you'd like, as long as the tune is the one given below. If it's too short, though, judges will take that into account.

Prizes include a Row House on Nu and gift certificates to Fit or Fold.

(see this thread for more details)

Anyone can enter and win!

Your Tune, in honor of the Blacksheep Brigade who helped us out by dropping a chest on us and going to war: "Stand By Me"

Original Lyrics:

When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the moon is the only light we see
No, I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me, so

* Darling darling stand by me
Oh, stand by me
Oh stand, stand by me, stand by me

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
Or the mountain
Should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand
Stand by me, and
(Repeat * 2 times)

Whenever you're in trouble
Won't you stand by me, oh stand by me


All entrants will be able to perform in the main room of Lorry's Palace on Nu after the contest closes! Good luck!

We post our songs here right?? Well here goes


Fight By Me - a skellie fighters ballad (dedicated to Saadskellie)



When the night has come
And the land is dark
And the skellies are the only ones we see
No, I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you fight
Fight by me, so

* Darling darling fight by me
Oh, fight by me
Oh fight, fight by me, fight by me

If the pirates in the fray
Should stumble and fall
Or my skull mug
Should be stolen away
I won't cry, I won't cry
No, I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you fight
Fight by me, and
(Repeat * 2 times)

Whenever there are skellies,
Won't you fight by me, oh fight by me

Song Title: Team By Me

When the Skellie has come
And the island is dark
And your voice bubble is the only light we see
No, I won't...loose this round
Oh, I won't...loose this round
Just as long as you Team
Team by me, so

Me Hearties Team by me
Oh, Team by me
Oh Team, Team by me, Team by me

If the skellie we look upon
Should join the Frey
Or the vote
Should start the fight
I won't die, I won't die
No, I won't lose me Poe
Just as long as you Team
Team by me, and

Me Hearties Team by me
Oh, Team by me
Oh Team, Team by me, Team by me

If they gang up on ye
Don't forget to stall
Or the Singlingers
Should combine into fours
Break the four, Break the four
No, I won't lose me Poe
Just as long as you Team
Team by me, and

Me hearties Team by me
Oh, Team by me
Oh Team, Team by me, Team by me

Me hearties Team by me
Oh, Team by me
Oh Team, Team by me, Team by me

Whenever we're in a brawl
Won't you team by me, oh team by me

Fire On Me

When the ships have come,
And the seas are dark,
And the sheep eyes are the only lights we see
No I won't scupper this
Oh I won't scupper this
Just as long as ye fire
Fire on me.

*So Darling Sheepies, fire on me
Oh fire on me
Oh fire, fire on me...fire on me.

If the ship that we fight upon,
Should crumple and fall,
Or this island
Should tumble to the sea,
I won't tart! I won't tart!
No I won't tart one bit,
Just as long as ye fire
Fire on me. and

(Repeat * twice)

Whenever ye want glub-glub
Won't ye fire on me...

who enters more for fun than for prizes, since she lives in a different Ocean.

Dedicated to my crewmate and friend, Jerze (pronounced so the last "e" rhymes with "me").

Plank Jerze

Well the fight has come,
And she's being lazy.
She's tried to swordfight with Jim, and with me.
I admit, I'm afraid -
Oh yes, I'm afraid.
So please, captain, won't you plank,
Plank Jerze. So

*Captain, captain, plank Jerze,
Oh, plank Jerze.
Oh plank, plank Jerze, plank Jerze.

If the brig that we're up against
Should carry more bots,
Or our cannons
Should misfire into the sea,
I might curse, I might cry,
Oh, I might tremble in fear.
But I won't, if you plank,
plank Jerze.
(Repeat * 2 times)

Whenever she's a-lazin'
Won't you plank Jerze, oh, plank Jerze

If yer sailin' on the midnight

And brigands are the only ships you see,
I won't grab that there helm
and protect my cargo
Just as long as you don't
Shoot at me

Oh Brigand Brigand... shoot at me
don't you dare... shoot at me
I'll take all your booty
if you Dare Shoot at me

Oh you're red, Oh so red
And there's Blood in my hold
It took hours to win that you see
I won't fight... No I won't fight
Or put holes in your ship..
Just as long... as you.. don't shoot at me.

Oh Brigand Brigand... shoot at me
don't you dare... shoot at me
I'll take all your booty
if you Dare Shoot at me

So if you're sailing on the Midnight
And the brigands are running wild
and bnav screen is the only thing you see
You just tell em loud and clear
That ye'll shoot if they come near
"So don't you dare... Shoot at me!"
----------------------------------------
Shiver me timbers! This here negotiation is over!! Hand over ye booty an' I'll be on me way!

When the white has come
And the rings are full
And "learning" is the only rank you'll see
No, I won't lose the brig
Oh, I won't lose the spawn
Just as long as you turn
Turn about, so

* XO XO nav by me
X Oh, nav by me
Oh nav, nav by me, nav by me

If the board that we lurch upon
Is full of rocks and whirpools
Or the briggie
Is sitting behind me
I won't booch, I won't booch
No, I won't LSM
Just as long as you nav
Nav me, and
(Repeat * 2 times)

Whenever we're a briggin'
Won't you nav by me, X oh nav by me

Don't plank me!

When the bilge is full,
And the cap'n is drunk
And the sails hang lifelessly around
No I don't want to work,
Oh I won't want to work,
And as long as you don't,
Don't plank me, so

Oh Captain, Captain, don't, don't plank me
Oooh don't, don't plank me, oh
don't, don't plank me, don't plank me....

If the fight - that we need to win -
Goes bad cause of no teams
Or the cannonballs
Fall tumbling into the sea.
I will cry, I will cry!
Please don't use that plank,
I simply like to laze,
Just as long, just as long you don't plank me.

Oh Captain, captain, don't! Don't plank me...
Ooooh don't, don't plank me. Ooooh
don't, don't plank me, don't plank me...

Whenever I shall laze...
Don't you plank me, oh don't plank me.

Two versions.

1. The Commanding Officer's Lament: (inspired by my own experiences COing in sinking blockades)
When the bilge is up
And the sails are dark
And the moon through the hull we can see
No, I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Because now healing potions
Are so cheap, oh

* Greenies, greenies
Listen to me!
Oh listen to me, yes it's sinking, that's ok though, listen to me.

If the mast that you're sittin' on
Should tumble and fall
(Or if that's so,
you get planked into the sea)
Don't you cry, I won't cry
Pirates, don't shed a tear
Just as long as you know an
Apothecary, and
(Repeat * 2 times)

Whenever you're in trouble
Won't you listen to me, oh do your damned job, then we won't sink, but if we do sink, it's ok!

2. Out of Tokens (inspired by watching the skirmishes at Nu today)
When the enemy comes
And the outlook's dark
And the jobbers all shout "aieee!"
No, I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as that ship
Stands by me, so

* Darling darling we're damaged,
But you're damaged,
So still, can't hit you, you can't hit me

Put your best carp and bilge on
Make the damage fall
Load the guns
In the meantime, just in case
We will try, we will try
Oh, to win this race
A race to get the first
Tokens in, and
(Repeat * 2 times)

Whenever I'm in trouble
Hope you stand by me, oh stand by me

When the night has come
And the sea is dark
And the black ship the only one I see
No I won’t be afraid
Oh I won’t be afraid
Just along as you all fight by me

Darlings darlings
Fight by me
Oh fight, fight by me fight by me

For we’ve erred, Made mistakes
Engaged a weaker crew
And now we’ll pay,
yes we’ll pay
For our crimes
We’ll be sunk, without trace
But we’ll sink , all as one
As we fight, yes we fight
As long as you all fight with me

Whenever we’re in trouble
Won’t you fight with me, oh fight with me

I got one, Be my carp



When those brigands come
And their shots are full
And one carp's the only station we see
Nay, I won't go on sails
Oh, I won't jump the ship
Just as long as you'll be
Be my carp , so

*Matey won't ye be my carp
aye, be my carp
be my carp, cause me heart's, full o' holes

If ye forget a hole and the
blink should appear
Or the snake comes
and tosses your piece to sea
I won't run, I won't bilge
Nay, I won't even dance
Just as long as you'll be
Be my carp, and

(*repeats)

So when the shots have hit
And the damage be high
And it looks like we're all gonna sink
Nay, I won't leave the ship
yar! I won't be afraid
Just as long as you'll be
be my carp, then

(*repeats twice)

Whenever we'll (glub) (glub) (glub)
Won't you be my carp, oh be my carp

I and the other judges were highly amused by the entries here. You all provided a great evening of entertainment. You are also all entered in our drinking cup lottery later this evening!

Congrats Ratnose - Great song

That was a blast - particularly logging on to find tells saying
a) There's a song about you.
b) There's a competition with about 10 mins max to deadline

It's amazing what you can come up with in 5 mins flat and no time for revision. It's a great challenge. Thanks guys it was lotsa fun.

(And BTW - Daynarius will be sued for slander the minute there's a courtroom on Midnight!)

Thanks a lot, once again!

I also agree with Jerze. It was a blast just scribbling something down, because my partner in parrot contest stumbled over this link about twenty minutes before the deadline and dared me to join. (Though she's probably biting her tongue that she did so, now. Hah! I hopes ye enjoy yer second place!)

Too bad there wasn't much competition (And I'm referring to the quantity, not the quality), but on the other hand, it's me first won competition, so... well. Thanks, and fun songs, everyone!

Speaking as one of the event organizers, I agree. More people enjoying the events I was helping with is always good.

But speaking as a judge, I'm sort-of selfishly glad there weren't too many entries. Really, all of the entries were wonderful. You mates did a fantastic job with quick compositions. It was incredibly difficult for us to pick the top three.

Congrats to everyone who managed to compose a funny song in the short time allotted! It was great fun to read them all.
