We need a new thread...
Anybody else have one???



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...

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?

singers.com

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
