OOC: Song Lyrics

I decided to write down the lyrics of all the songs in Doctor Who And The Pirates (except for Gallifreyan Buccaneer, because that's already online) so I could sing along better, and with a little help from [livejournal.com profile] maltese_penguin managed to figure them all out.

An Assassin's Lot

Merryweather:
When a sailor is a-sailing on the ocean (on the ocean),
Not getting in the way of pirate plans (pirate plans),
We wouldn't even entertain the notion ('tain the notion),
Of slaughtering the sailor and his clans (and his clans).

But when he stands between us and some treasure (and some treasure),
Then homicidal duty's to be done (to be done).
We would like to leave the sailor at his leisure (at his leisure),
But a killer's lot is not a happy one.

Pirates:
Oooh,
When homicidal duty's to be done (to be done),
An assassin's lot is not a happy one (happy one).

Merryweather:
When the honest Jacky Tar is up the rigging (up the rigging),
Or munching on his salmagundi feast (gundi feast),
We would like to leave him to his rum a-swigging (rum a-swigging),
Not force him to the ranks of the deceased (the deceased).

But when his hold is full of gold and jewelry (gold and jewelry),
With coins and gems and spices by the ton (by the ton),
Then sadly we must exercise some cruelty ('cise some cruelty),
An assassin's lot is not a happy one (happy one).

Pirates:
Oooh,
When homicidal duty's to be done (to be done),
An assassin's lot is not a happy one (happy one).



Jasper's Man

Merryweather:
I'm Jasper's man, his Caliban,
His to control, he owns my soul.
For Captain Red, I'd strike you dead.
You'd have to go, be you friend or foe.
As Red's first mate, I subjugate,
Or pulverate each man ingrate,
Each man ingrate.

Sally:
Not how I planned, blood on my hand.
I take the blame, I bear the shame,
I bear the shame.
To know this hurt was just desert,
It is my curse, can get no worse.
My heartache deep won't let me sleep.
I can't go on, my future's gone.

The Doctor:
I heard one day a gentleman say,
That sorrow is the price we pay.
The cost of care is most unfair,
For all you've lost,
Your loss brings quite a cost.
But better yet, to know regret,
There's no defense for malice prepense.

(repeat 1x, all together)

Sally:
And so, I know, I'm ready to go.
I'll make the leap, to slumber deep,
No more to weep for you.
I'll keep eternal sleep,
Just let me sleep.

Merryweather:
And so, although they don't want to go,
I must obey.
For Red I slay each stowaway and those who stray.
I won't betray,
I must obey.

The Doctor:
Look in my eye and then you'll spy
In front of you a Doctor who,
Through his purview he tells you true,
Don't bid adieu, he suffered too.

(together 6x)
I must obey.
Just let me sleep.
Don't bid adieu, I suffered too.



I Am Alone

I am alone,
I've reaped and sown,
I bear the fruits of sorrow.

But soon I sleep,
No more to weep,
For there'll be no tomorrow.

We were one heart,
Two hearts, one soul,
A source of living wonder.
But evil fate was inchoate,
And split us soon asunder.

I mean to leave the Earth,
I mean to fly.
I'll be no more alone.
Just me and I.

I mean to leave the Earth,
I mean to fly.
I'll be no more alone.
Just me and I.



I'm Better

Merryweather:
I sail the ocean blue, attentive to my duty.
With Captain Red and crew, our crew's in search of booty.
When anchor we 'weigh, and we sail away,
And find a fine ship to pursue,
The men look to me as the man they want to be.
I'm a better sailor far than you.

Pirates:
Hurrah, hurrah, Mr. Merryweather's best!
Hurrah, hurrah-

The Doctor:
Shall I put him to the test?

I am the Doctor from the TARDIS bold, you've never seen a one like me.
I'm a sailor through and through, nothing nautic I can't do,
Though I've hardly ever been to sea.

Merryweather:
I wonder if you'd win if a contest we begin,
Can you climb a rig like me?

With my maritime resource I can handle any course with great efficiency.
Although I look urbane there's still water in my veins.
Can you handle a ship like me?

Merryweather: I'm better!
The Doctor: I'm better!
Merryweather: I'm better!
The Doctor: We'll see who's better!

Pirates:
For he can sail a ship, you'll see!
Then give three cheers and one more cheer,
For one of you is far the better privateer!
Then give three cheers and get a grip,
As Merryweather sails this ship!

The Doctor:
I have a most prodigious thirst, as every sailor has who's true.
So much rum I'll down that you'll look like a clown.
I can take my drink, can you?

Merryweather:
I can down a pint or two if it's distillated brew,
I can take more rum than you!

The Doctor:
My sea legs are the best; I walk further than the rest in ocean promenadery.
In the narrowest of space, I can saunter like an ace.
Can you walk the plank like me?

The Doctor: I'm better!
Merryweather: I'm better!
The Doctor: I'm better!
Merryweather: We'll see who's better!

Pirates:
For he can walk the plank, you'll see!
So give three cheers and one more cheer,
For one of you is far the better privateer!
Then give three cheers you mountebank,
As Merryweather walks the plank!



Pirate Queen

The Doctor:
Here comes the fearsome pirate Evelyn.
Her name is Evil Evelyn, I've stuck with her through thick and thin.
Her cardie is a shade of red, it recollects the blood she shed.
These factors she will verify.
Now could you try to terrify.

Evelyn:
I'm doing my best, it's not my scene.
Whose mad idea was this pirate queen?

The Doctor:
For she is a pirate queen!
Though strange and disguised in bombazine,
She is a pirate queen.

Evelyn:
I am a pirate queen!

Pirates:
She is, three cheers for the Pirate Queen!

The Doctor:
She has the fearsome bloodthirsty mien of every pirate queen.

Evelyn:
I have?

Pirates:
Three cheers for the Pirate Queen,
Three cheers for the Pirate Queen!

Evelyn:
They call me Evil Evelyn, I am a pirate genuine.
I've sailed the ocean all my days,
Practicing my pirate ways.

Jasper:
I fear no man on land or sea.
You'll never get the best of me.
I raise my cutlass to my foe,
Your pirate queen I'll overthrow.

For I am a pirate king!
And it is, it is a glorious thing to be a pirate king!
For I am a pirate king!

Pirates:
You are! Hurrah for the Pirate King!

Jasper:
And it is, it is a glorious thing to be a pirate king!

Pirates:
It is! Hurrah for the Pirate King! Hurrah for the Pirate King!
