[EntryThread]2020 December (not) Daily Doodles, Doodle VIII [Winners announced!] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Clotho had one too many glugs of nog last night, got lippy with me and Hera, so she's having a lovely time out in El Pollo Diablo's hold. In the meantime, here's another Doodle:

 
Shiny paper! Glittery bows! Festive sprigs of mistletoe! It's time to rap, yo-yo-ho-ho! Your task is to compose and perform a piratey holiday rap song. I know, I know- singing is the bane of many a Doodler's existence. I've been there and whined about that. So for this doodle, rather than insist on pesky details like "hitting the correct note", or "carrying a tune", the emphasis will be on creative wording and rhythmic flow! For this event, you will need to: -Write one winter holiday AND pirate themed rap. Any length will do, but bear in mind that only one or two lines isn't likely to score very high. -Record yourself performing your rap. Feel free to include any willing friends, neighbors, or Faeree's brother. -Upload your recording to a host site, such as YouTube. Make sure whichever site you choose is free to access, and does not require a password to listen. As always, normal forum rules apply. Although rap is frequently a salty genre, keep it clean and make sure your lyrics channel Will Smith, not Wu Tang Clan. - Please read the general rules before posting.



  • One entry per player!
  • Include your pirate name and ocean
  • Entries only in this thread. If you have questions/comments, please put those in the main thread.
  • Host your video/recording somewhere safe and accessible!
  • Contest will finish at game time
  • You may edit your post up until the deadline of Dec 29th at 11.00 am


The standard rules apply as per the main thread.

Hera says, "I wish I was awesome enough to be on #TeamEvil!"
Later...
Hera says, "And the sorry thing is, I can't remember if I said, or didn't say, that."

It's my last night alone in the house so I wanted to do this quickly. So nobody else's ears have to suffer.

Wayfarer of Emerald

https://soundcloud.com/user3902001/doodle-rap-2020/s-Tau4ulfTqN6

Lyrics (it's a lot I am sorry):
 

It's the first night of Hanukkah
I'm sailing to sea.
I've got a hold full of rum and my good hearty.
We're prepared for a pillage,
Just a couple of buds
Fighting brigands, earning poe
So we can buy some spuds.

Why spuds? You may ask, well they're for a treat
We want to celebrate the holiday with latkes to eat
So our plan to fill our bellies is to get some cash
With a quick little pilly before sailing back.

But the first ship we meet is all decked in teal,
And it's Barnabus the Pale standing at the wheel.
"Did he redecorate?" my hearty asks, I shrug my shoulders,
As the ghost ship approaches we start feeling colder.

Well, I'm manning the guns,
But my hands get numb,
From the chill, but I still
Try my best to fill
But he grapples quick, before we can react.
They board our ship, we grab our swords, we're fighting back to back.

And slash! We swing our swords but slash! they just pass through
The noncorporeal forms of his ghostly crew
And before we know it we're alone in the cold,
And Barney B and his crew emptied out our hold.

"No rum!" I exclaim,
My hearty's looking blue,
But I scour the ship because that can't be true,
And after sweeping every inch of every deck, I shout,
"I found a bottle!" lift it high but then I see the amount.

There isn't very much, maybe a mouthful's worth,
But I pass it to my pal so he can quench his thirst
He takes a swig and hands it back, and then to my shock
There's still enough in the bottle left to fill me up

The next battle is easy, cuz we're feeling warm,
And with rum in our bellies we are raring to go.
We cause some damage, max them out and then we grapple and board,
And soon we're sailing away with their treasure hoard.

We chart a course for home and we are feeling pretty grand,
We're packed with plenty of loot for our return to land.
When we make it to port, we're feeling pretty sweet,
We buy some oil and some potatoes to make latkes to eat.

At the local inn, we take over the kitchen
We start frying them up, and then some others pitch in,
Until the rum is overflowing and the latkes are done
And every patron of the inn is having some fun.

Since that year I've celebrated Hanukkah a little different
Sure, latkes are delicious but they're insufficient
Now beside them every year I have a barrel of rum
To commemorate the bottle that got us safely home.

Pirate Rap Marijkeuh of Emerald

Yo Captain, I've been working overtime
Got the carp and bilge down.
Been sailing around.
I want my feet on the ground.
It's been snowing all day.
Been to long on this freakin pilly.
I wanne celebrate Christmas with all of my friend, if that makes even sence.
We're sailing from east to the west.
I wanne be the best but now I wanne rest.
I wanne sleep in my bunk and wanne get drunk.
But no I don't wanne get sunk.
Hey captain, I admire you.
I will do anything to.
But please can we go to the coast cause that's what I want most.
So I can eat my french toast.

Captain let's celebrate Christmas - Yohohoho
Let's get this party startin
Let's celebrate Christmas - Yohohoho
And let's get drunk.
Captain let's celebrate Christmas - Yohohoho
Let's get this party startin
Let's celebrate Christmas - Yohohoho
And let's get drunk.


Marijkeuh, Emerald

Whew! Just got Adobe CC for Christmas, and had a bit of a learning curve creating the video, but finally figured it out. :)

My rap is called "Grey's Mr. Grey". Hope your ears can stand it!

Here's the text:
 
Grey's Mr. Grey, a rap by Greyladyy of Cerulean

I'm just a lady with a lonely heart,
No Mr. Grey to play a part,
Most of the pirates I meet are young,
Might as well they be my son!

I've sailed the seas from stem to stearn,
Lookin' for the man for whom I yearn,
Though I've searched far and wide for him,
Seems pickin's for oldies are mighty slim.

I'm just a lady with a lonely heart,
Really just lookin' for a sweet ol' fart,
Fat and jolly are what I need,
Likes to travel and has a ship's deed.

With a generous spirit and a heart of gold,
Doesn't matter to me if he is old,
Wrinkles and glasses, bold sense of style,
Would make my heart sing all the while.


What's that you say? You've seen that man?
Sails a sporty red sloop, lookin' really grand?
Deck covered in presents and candy too?
How can I find him? What do I do?

His name, ye say, is Nick or Kris,
Or sometimes Santa, whatever fits,
He lives up North, you do believe,
But sails the Seas on Christmas Eve?

How can I meet this special guy?
Send an SOS? Have a big fish fry?
Leave cookies and rum by the fire ye say?
On Christmas Eve? He's sure to stay!

Oh Santa! Or Nick! Or Kris, whatever,
Thought you didn't exist, no, not ever!
But if you're real, I do believe,
I'll nab yer heart so ye'll never leave!

No longer a lady with a lonely heart,
Santa's Mr. Grey and he's doin' his part,
To make me happy and keep me young,
I've finally found my only one!

12/28 Edit: Pirate Santa! (slower, less aggro version)
Cavatappi on Emerald
My pirate voice needs work...

Lyrics:
 
Pirate Santa! Pirate Santa!

Gather round kids,
Buy the old salt a drink
And he'll tell you the story
Behind a beard and a wink

Did ye hear the cannon shots last night?
It's Pirate Santa and he's ready to fight!
His ship in the clouds is such a delight
Firing blasts of mirth, merry and bright!

Yohohoho and milk in a pint glass!
Presents for every good lad and lass!

Pirate Santa's got treasure
In the hold there's the booty
For those who are deserving
And always on duty

Who's rigging and swigging?
Pirate Santa!
Who's cheering and steering?
Pirate Santa!
Who makes demands of brigands?
Pirate Santa!
Swill for the naughty and rum for the nice
For all Pirate Santa's got some stern advice

Now there's a rumor about Santa floatin' round these parts
They say he's got a cold and twisted heart

Outside the season of joy and cheer
His visage is one ye ought to fear
Sailing a ghostly ship, elves naught but bones,
Be bad and they make sure you're never alone
Prey on the weak and ye'll get a curse
For the Black Ship sails and will be yer hearse!

Now ye'd better be good and ye'd better play fair
Cause Pirate Santa is always watching
And waiting out there...

YARRR!


Wanted to inject some lore, up to you if it's real!

Cattrin on Emerald

The Day After Christmas
 
You've heard about the Night Before and the Last and the Blue
But what about the Day After too?

You wake up late, must be half past noon
Or is it half past eight, is that the moon?
You don't know the date, but there's your first mate
Using wrapping paper as a blanket?
Let me get this straight...

There's bows on your toes
and the gifts? who knows
Eggnog in the grog
being drunk by your hedgehog?
What happened last night,
was it full of white, bright, light
like they say in the song
or did it all go wrong?

Stumble onto the deck, just to check
That you're still in the dock, and not in a wreck,
But no port in site, everything's white,
and wind so strong you fear frostbite

Where are you? who knows
There's bows on your toes
and your mate asleep in the hold down below.
But up in the crows nest, facing west, you might guess,
Is Santa with a spyglass, completely undressed!

You're distressed, and have to express, a little impressed
at how your night had progressed.
Are you on some quest? Should you protest?
You turn about and head back to the hold, away from the cold
Maybe if you go back to bed, all this is in your head
You just ate too much gingerbread
and when all is said
you'll wake up at home, instead


It's more of a spoken poem than a rap, but that's the best you'll get out of me!

Cptnronen of Cerulean

Cptnronen's Entry for Doodle VIII

As nothing was said of proper capitalization or spelling, here are the lyrics straight from my notepad.
 
take a league and laze right here
while I tell you about someone near

prepair yourself he sails but once a year
but you surely know after hes been there

snowy bootprints and empty rum barrels
cookie crumbs and piles of presents

prepair to engage, we will get but one shot
his magical sloop, another like there is not

dressed in red and white glowing in the night
with a beard that shines in the moonlight

filled with holiday cheer
we will all swordfight

his ledger is what i desire
logs of my past what i require

to find at last what i did wrong
for the coal i recieved all along

all I wanted was a parrot feather
light green and white not any other

a sleighbells jingle in the air
an ominous omen of a fray near

I take the helm as it comes into sight
that magical sloop in the moonlight

snowballs to the aft and forward
grappling hooks to the port and starboard

at long last, avast!

This was so far outside my comfort zone, its in another galaxy.

NOTHING TO SEE HERE, MOVE ALONG NOW

Phaeirie, Emerald

I Like Big Boats

Oh my god Fourteen, look at that boat, It is so big!
It looks like one of those docksitters boats
But who really cares what they do?
The only show those boats, because, they like to flex their entire booty dockside
I mean, that boat, it's just so big
I can't believe the aft on it, It's just moored there I mean scupper, look
It's...just...so...big

I like big boats and I cannot lie,
You other pirates can't deny
That when a frig sails by with a long tall mast
And a poopdeck in your face
You get hooked, wanna get on board
Cause you notice the hold was rich
Full to the brim with booty
With treasures from pillage and looting.

Dear Santa, I wrote you him this poem
The words are flowin
My hopes are for a grand frig
Cos that boat I see makes (me so happy)

Swinging from the rigging and spilling tea and dropping mics?
Are you sure we don't need to stage some kind of intervention m'dear?

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being so charitable to an auld pirate! The singing doodle is a trial for me but I'm truly made up that I succeeded at it, although I think that Cardi B and Nikki Minaj can rest easy LOL. Again, thank you so very, very much <3
