about

This is a modern sea shanty for air pirates designed to help haul on ropes.

lyrics

Didja ever see a dragon fly?
Weigh-hey, haul-a-long-ho
O’er the moon and across the sky?
Weigh-ho, me hearties.

I tell you true, ’tis a fearsome sight
Weigh-hey, haul-a-long-ho
Can keep the fiercest up at night
Weigh-ho, me hearties.

The cabin boy — by name of Ned
Weigh-hey, haul-a-long-ho
Spent the rest o’ the night under his bed
Weigh-ho, me hearties.

And the cook, he stole the Cap’t’s rum,
Weigh-hey, haul-a-long-ho
Drank it all to make him numb,
Weigh-ho, me hearties.

The mate, whose sword was always out,
Weigh-hey, haul-a-long-ho
Drowned hisself in a cask o’ stout
Weigh-ho, me hearties.

The bosun blew his whistle loud–
Weigh-hey, haul-a-long-ho
And used the mainsail as a shroud!
Weigh-ho, me hearties.

The doc, he took a scalpel sharp,
Weigh-hey, haul-a-long-ho
And carved hisself an auto-harp!
Weigh-ho, me hearties.

And our brave cap’t–ol’ Black Jack,
Weigh-hey, haul-a-long-ho
He jumped o’er the side and he ain’t come back!
Weigh-ho, me hearties.

(Spoken: Hey, wait a minute…)
