Leben mit Herman Melville

When we were not sailing

with 2 comments

Update for Scribble Away:

We gratefully appreciate Hannah‘s treasures from the internet, such as:

Christina Dichterliebchen hat einen Gig aufm VorderdeckWhen we were not sailing,
not ravishing the seas,
we were always on the lookout
for lasses without disease.

We’d know where to find them,
and bring them to ship,
drink with them some booze,
then hand them a whip.

Come sail away
Come sail away
Come sail away with me, lads.

When we roamed the oceans,
and wanted to get something done,
we would hand out booze,
even if it was a nun.

It would work for
whatever we wanted,
but it seems that the times
of now have granted
different customs to be normal,
and the mods became more formal.

Nowadays handing out booze
does nothing to enable
you from accidentying
the bo syllable…

Come sail away
Come sail away
Come sail away with me, lads.

Yams Mayflower & Prince of Dimness: Thanks for Sharing, November 26–27, 2011.

Brüderchen, komm tanz mit mir,
beide Hände reich ich dir,
Jakob hin, Jakob her,
weil mein Schatz ein Schornsteinfeger ist.

Ohne dich kann ich nicht sein,
ohne dich, mit dir bin ich auch allein,
ohne dich, rosenrot, oh rosenrot —
und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn.
