Mother's Day (Explicit Lyrics)

from Lent 2010 by Once in a Moon



Dirty Mother's Day sea shantie. Foul language. You have been warned.


We're pirates on the open sea
We fly the jolly roger
The captain says I work all night
Or he'll cut off my todger

So heave ho and haul away
One plunder to another
We fight and we drink and we steal and we kill
But still we love our mothers

The first mate had a nasty fall
From off the highest masthead
He landed on the captain's sword
Which sodomised the bastard

So heave ho and haul away
In one hole and out the other
He may never sit down again
But still he loves his mother

The cabin boy's a lithe young lad
Quick as the artful dodger
He spends his days on his knees on deck
That's why we calls him Roger

So heave ho and haul away
There he'll stay 'til kingdom come
He might not tell her of his life on board
But still he loves his mum

The cook on board's a dirty git
He's loud and fat and grumpy
He'll vomit in the mutton stew
Because it make it lumpy

So heave ho and haul away
He'd roast his only brother
He might be the worst cook in the world
But still he loves his
We all love our
Yes, I loves me
