In which we celebrate "International Talk Like a Pirate" Day

Today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Let's celebrate...with a little song.

Endurance Riders (sung to the tune of "Drunken Sailor")

What do you do with endurance riders
What do you do with endurance riders
What do you do with endurance riders
Ear-lie in the morning?

CHORUS:
Way-hey and up she rises
Way-hey and up she rises
Way-hey and up she rises
Ear-lie in the morning!

Mark 'em a trail and send 'em up it
Mark 'em a trail and send 'em up it
Mark 'em a trail and send 'em up it
Ear-lie in the morning!

CHORUS

Dress 'em in bio-thane and glitter
(repeat)

CHORUS

Feed 'em on Spam and fresh zucchini
(repeat)

CHORUS

Make 'em trot out and then trot back and
(repeat)

CHORUS

Give an award to the tail-end rider!
(repeat)

CHORUS

Okay, readers.  We need more verses!  Put 'em in the comment box. 

Here's a link to a really good version of the more traditional "Drunken Sailor" song to get you up and singing.

And don't forget to Talk Like a Pirate today!

  2. We watched the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Does that count?


    How about:

    "Give 'em dry clothes, when they're through"

    Or

    "A mirror for the one in purple riding backwards"



    "Drink up ye hearties! YO HO!"
