Pirate Shanties: Hear My Call Boy-Ohs

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Hey there boy-ohs,

Hear my call now!

Fair lasses waiting,

Upon the shore!


Hey there boy-ohs,

Hear my call now!

Fair lasses waiting,

Calling out for more!


Hey there boy-ohs,

Hear my call now!

Away we shall sail,

From the lassies fair!


Hey there boy-ohs,

Hear my call now!

Away we shall sail,

Find more lassies there!


Hey there boy-ohs,

Hear my call now!

Live upon the sea,

This is our new life!


Hey there boy-ohs,

Hear my call now!

Live upon the sea,

For she is our wife!


Hey there boy-ohs,

No more calls now!

Swab the deck clean,

And raise the main sail!


Hey there boy-ohs,

No more calls now!

Swab the deck clean,

Lest the captain give wail!

Musical Mind and Clumsy Fingers

I've always taken a deep interest in music because I can hear beautiful symphonies in my head that have never been made, but my fingers could never keep up with the practice of playing what I could create. Then again it would've helped to have actual teachers, but oh well, there is always time to learn. Even if I can't do the instruments, I can always try my hand at lyricism!

P.S. Pirates are cool!
