Herowena
Cerulean
Red

The song stylings of Herowena and Hornswoggle

Lyrics:
I saw Clotho dock-press Santa Claus
For our Christmas kraken hunt last night

He landed in his sleigh, then was quickly whisked away
If Clotho wants a kraken, even Santa won't delay

Then I saw Clotho bombing Santa Claus
With a barrel tossed into the winds

In our Caroling Candles' glow, St. Nicholas learned to row
Clotho dock-pressed Santa Claus last night

Greyladyy of Cerulean
Color: maroon

Greyladyy's (sort-of) singing, helped out by an anonymous pirate...

Holly Jolly Kraken (based on Holly Jolly Christmas)

Have a holly, jolly Kraken
It's the best game of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow
But we'll still dip in here

Have a holly, jolly Kraken
From the tentacles retreat
Here we go, move to and fro
To reach the eggie treat

Yo, ho the Kraken goes
Down into the deep
Now we can go on through
To his treasure keep

Have a holly, jolly Kraken
Cause I know you never fear
Oh by golly have a holly jolly Kraken
This year

break...( spoken)
(Yar! These tents be tough today!
Arrgh! The egg be so far away!
Yo! Don't slap me around ye miserable tentacles!
NOooo! I'm sinking!)

Yo, ho the Kraken goes
Down into the deep
Now we can go on through
To his treasure keep

Have a holly, jolly Kraken
Cause I know you never fear
Oh by golly have a holly jolly Kraken
This year

Oh by golly have a holly jolly Kraken
This year

Phaeirie, Emerald
Black

The continuing battle about pineapple on pizza.


Oh Holy Scupper!


Mr and Mrs Phaeirie suggest that copious amounts of rum be consumed before listening!


OH HOLY SCUPPER
Oh holy scupper!The cannonballs are flying
For tonight all the ocean is at war.

Boats out to sea,with guns all full and firing
at any ship - all alliances ignored.

A flash of guns, another flag has fallen,
the wreckages lies - all oe'r the sea tis strewn

There will be no peace
The pirates make such noises
oh not on mine
oh no pineapple please
oh not on mine
oh no pineapple please.

The time has come for pirates to make choices
put fruit or not upon their pizza pie.

Tomato and cheese, covers all the slices,
meats and veg, but what about the fruit?

The guns go so quiet,no sound comes from the battles
and all that's heard is the song of caroling candles..

The war it is done
though the battle rages on
the candles they sing
oh no fruit on mine
oh no pine apple
oh no, not on mine.

Audio Recording - Sloop Ride

May induce headache. Lower the volume if possible. You've been warned.


Sloop Ride (Slightly Modified Sleigh Ride)

(Rum rum rum rum rum rum!)
Just hear those sloop bells jingling ring-ting-tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sloop ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and hearties are calling, "Ahoy!"
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sloop ride together with you

Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap
Let's go, let's look at the show (Rum rum rum rum)
We're riding in a wonderland of snow (Yo ho ho ho)
Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap
It's grand, just holding your hand (Yarrrrrr!)
We're riding along with a song of a wintry fairy land

Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we
We're snuggled up together like two birds of a feather would be
Let's light our caroling candle and sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sloop ride together with you

There's a drinking tourney at the home of Pirate Grey (Rum rum rum rum)
It'll be the perfect ending of a perfect day (Yo ho ho ho)
We'll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop
At the fireplace while we watch the pirates chug! Chug! Chug!

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy
When they pass around the cookies and the bottle of rum
It'll nearly be like a picture print by Currier and Ives
These wonderful things are the things we remember all through our lives!
(Rum rum rum rum rum rum!)

Just hear those sloop bells jingling
Ring-ting-tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sloop ride... together with you



Thanks to my family, my awesome ypp friends, and my problematic ukulele. Hi Kikinoki, Jumar, Drke, and Inf!<3 Aaaand thanks to the OMs for the forum events. I enjoyed them a lot no matter how messy my entries were. ;p

Wayfarer, Emerald, Black.

Definitely misread this and said caroling candle in the recording but not as part of the lyrics. Anyway. Here are the lyrics (and chords for those interested-- I'm so rusty, my hand is cramping really hard right now from all the attempts at getting it right, haha)

Maybe it's much too late in the game
A A7 D Dm
Ah, but I thought I'd ask you just the same
A F#7 B
Will you be playing New Year's,
E7 A B7 Dm E7
New Year's Eve?


A G7
Wonder which hearties will sail the open seas
A A7 D Dm
Will I be the only one puzzling new years eve?
A F#7 B
Sailing into the new year,
E7 A G#7
New Year's Eve


C#m F#7 Am
Maybe I'm crazy, give me a sign
C#m F#7 D7
That I won't be the only one online
C#m F#7
Out of the thousand different places
b e7
we could be

a g7
Ah, but in case I stand one little chance
A A7 D Dm
Here comes the jackpot question in advance

Am-m-m-aaaazing! Loved them all! If there's ever been a doodle that puts a smile on my face, this is the one :)

The winner receives a sloop Caroling Candlefish, a giant imperial nutcracker, Clotho egg, trinket and 5 shiny Sun point is Redjade of Emerald! You will need to trade the ship to an alt and back to update property.

Runner ups who will receive a giant imperial nutcracker, Clotho egg, trinket and 3 shiny Sun points each: Herowena of Cerulean, Phaeirie of Emerald and Wayfarer of Emerald (yep, the caroling candle counts as it was on the recording)

Special mention to Greyladyy of Cerulean who receives a trinket and a shiny sun point! LOVED the recording and the lyrics, but missed the caroling candle.

Prizes have been delivered. Happy new year!
