The Pirate Christmas Party

13 posts in this topic

Wishing everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and hoping that my friends have the best year ever in the coming year and my enemy gets what he truly deserves before the end of 2009!

The Pirate Christmas Party

Fifteen men ‘round the Christmas tree,

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

All were pirates including me.

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

The party was loud and runnin’ wild,

Celebratin’ the birth of the dear Christ child,

But this were no place for the meek or mild!

There was meat and drink for all to spare,

The table was laden with Christmas fare

And red and green rigging for all to wear!

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen men with presents for all,

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Some were great and some were small.

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

The cap’n brought a brand new blade,

The mate he brought some socks he made,

The bosun brought silk of ruby shade.

All went under the Christmas tree,

Boxed or bagged so none could see,

While the crew carried on the festivity!

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen gifts for the pirates and tars,

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Some in boxes and some in jars.

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Cookie boiled some special sweets,

Bucky broiled some smoky meats,

Each gob they brought some special treats.

And they were piled so shiny and bright,

They looked just like the stars at night,

Bound in paper and tied up tight

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen pirates all feastin’ and drinkin’,

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Each manjack there was sittin’ and thinkin’

Ho, ho, ho and a bottle of rum!

“Which package should I choose to pick?”

“Which of all will do the trick?”

“Will Cookie’s gift there make me sick?”

Then came the time to choose a gift,

Under the tree we all did drift,

To see which present each would lift.

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

The good captain chose the ruby silk,

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

The mate he got some coconut milk,

Ho, ho, ho, and PUT IT IN THE RUM!

The bosun got the captain’s blade,

Cookie got the socks handmade,

And Bucky got a ring of jade.

I wound up with the boiled sweets

And passed them out for all to eat

That way I stayed upon my feet!

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen pirates loudly carols singing!

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

Christmas bells are merrily ringing!

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

The crew is like a family this night,

With food and drink we all delight,

And presents that fit us all just right

We welcome the Christ child to the Earth,

With laughter and joy and peaceful mirth

We sing His praises for all we’re worth!

Ho, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum!

I've had several people ask and so - PLEASE feel free to use this poem for your own purposes. All I ask is that you leave it in its present state, leave my name on it, and leave the copyright symbol and date as is.
