Hoist the Jolly Roget's!

Rob Balder and Pirates for Sail present the official FuMP release for Talk Like a Pirate Day 2007!

Rob Balder: Web cartoonist and filker extraordinaire.
Pirates for Sail: A scurvy band of scalawags who sing pirate music in between mugs of grog.
The FuMP: The Funny Music Project.

My good buddy Rob wanted to write a pirate song for Talk Like a Pirate Day, and needed some pirates for backup vocals. As many of you know, I just happen to be a pirate, so I enlisted my crew and we came to his aid. It was a match made in heaven, and this is the result. "Hoist the Jolly Roget's" tells the story of a hapless songwriter forced to compose a song for a shipful of violent pirates, with only one reference book of questionable use to help him. Enjoy, me hearties!

(The song is released under Creative Commons licensing. Rob granted me explicit permission to share it on MeFi Music.)
