    My contribution...
    The music link is below the poetry...



    Hey there skipper
    Hey there Crewguy
    Hey there other sailor
    C'mon and gether round ye children
    To the gospel I'm a spillin
    Lord don't want you protesting each other

    He's the one who makes the place
    for our every sailing race
    And we're bound to go and tune with one another

    For that giant sailing race up in the sky
    Where the sound of sailor voices makes those angels want to cry
    Every race is our audition
    All we got to do is die
    to join that giant sailing race up in the sky

    Now once I traveled down the path
    where only sinners be
    oh I met some guys with powerboats
    and they made me water ski
    With sex and drugs and big outboards
    I was blinded by the lie
    until the spirit of those Hereschoffs showed me how the folks get high

    In that giant sailing race up in the sky
    where the sound of sailor voices makes those angels want to cry
    Every race is our audition, all we got to do is die
    to join that giant sailing race up in the sky

    You gotta trim and keep your boat real flat and always do your best
    You gotta round all the buoys and pass that string test
    Oh I heard it from St Peter . He's a guy who ought to know
    You can walk right through those pearly gates if you've been a P R O
    been a P R O

    OH OH we've gone astray We've lost our way. We're about to take a fall
    If we don't get together soon you know old Lucifer will call
    and when you let the devil on the bay a good race can turn bad
    with missing marks and general recalls
    But not that giant sailing race up in the sky
    where the sound of sailor voices makes those angels want to cry
    every race is out audition all we've got to do is die
    to join that giant sailing race up in the sky
    '
    OH OH that giant sailing race up in the sky
    where the sounds of sailor voices makes those angels want to cry
    Every race is our audition All we got to do is die to join that giant sailing race up in the sky

    Well every race is our audition All we've got to do is die
    to join that giant sailing race up it the sky




    The link to the music....
    It will open up realplayer (if you have it) and play the tune. You must substitute the words for the ones used...They simply got it wrong...

    I always thought "the Good Ship Venus" summed it up nicely... but I've got no imagination.

    Wow. I've been busy for the holidays and when I checked in here at TLF there's a thread with my name in it.
    My first.....(sniff).....I'm....(sniff)....touched. :eek:
    I'll have to get down the the Boogie Barn (my studio) and get cracking on that song.
    Hey gouvernail, that is one odd tune (the original). Where do find these things?

    this one is from the Bobs

    Bradley tossed this off the laser section. I should have included laser in the words ...I guess??

    Come ON Fred...Does it really have anything to do with "sailing, racing, rigging, parts, etc." That section is intended for serious laser discussion, however, I enjoy threads like this, but they belong in the Open Discussion area.

    Thanks for understanding,

    Griping (whining) is the priviledge of maturity.

    Well, I'd say that that leaves out Gouvernail, but then he might whine some more, so I won't say it. I'd also say that think I like smart-alecky Gouv better than whiny Gouv, but that might sound like whining, and we don't want that, privileges or no. :D
