Still time to get this into ...
.. Pirates of the Caribbean III soundtrack. I think
you need more drunken male backing vox .. put it on
the list for MJ UK 2007 convention ;o)

Hmm .. did they have kazoo's in those days? time to
switch to paper and comb or accordian/squeeze box
I think for this. (there's a free AU Plug-in)

Lots of fun, fabulous to bring this to the surface again and a nice little Caroline addition (the last verse).

drunken males alan??
i think you have completely misunderstood the way this convention is going to go!! if it wasn't for the kazoo i would've had to have emphasised those bits with a frying pan - get my drift?? big loves from blighty xoxox and ty for.. well, you know ;)

Ha ha ha ha ha!! I love laughing first thing in the morning -- thank you for bringing a much-needed smile to "me mug"!

P'raps I shunt 'a had so much grog last night -- I was hearing double -- maybe even TRIPLE -- Carolines on this track!! Arrrrrrrrrr!!!

I love the way you said "You can sing em yourself!" towards the end.

Is there such a thing as having TOO much fun? ;-) You obviously had it here.

my fave song!
i love your voice, and i love that tune! let's do a version where i'm on concertina, and i'll harmonize with my baritone; and we'll make up more lyrics - what fun!

i loved the part, as Cam mentioned, where you said, "...sing 'em yourself!"
caroline said 3940 days ago (February 8th, 2007)

Thanks for the laffs... this is one of those songs that you didn't realize that you REALLY needed to hear it until you did hear it. And so I listened, and this filled a much needed gap in my aesthetic sensibilities. Heheh, this is the perfect way to start my work day, thank you!

The English folk muse has possessed you well and truly! It doesn't get more authentic than this.

What kind of school did you go to?! We had to learn Octopus's Friggin' Garden at mine.

Caro - aaaaaaargh, Polly want a kazoo?!
You learnt this at school?! Lots of fun - only possible way of improving this would have been to record it at the pub - around 9.30 after a few lovely pints of George Gale's HSB.
You should be invited to everyone's next party ;)

It's time for The Spinners to move over...
...you and your chums are clearly far finer interpreters of England's glorious folksong legacy (besides which they never had a kazoo player).
