Sea Cruise - Herman's Hermits

If you just cut and paste the title and artist into a google search, you usually get a youtube link among the first replies.

I actually saw Herman's Hermits play a concert in Annapolis about a year or two back at Ram's Head. It was hilarious!! Was pretty convinced I wasn't going to like it, but we had a great time. After that, I'm certain these guys are referring to a Sea Cruise on a sailboat!

p.s. Peter Noone is in his mid-60s now and hasn't lost a note!!
I hate to play the "Otis" card again, but the only version of Sea Cruise to play is Freddy Cannon's original, and if you give it a listen you'll hear a pretty un-sailboat- like horn blowing during the "ooooh whee"s.

If you google it, you typically easily find a youtube or other link. If you add the work "lyrics" after the title and artist, you will also find those. (That's how I check on submissions )

I really appreciate embedding the youtube links, but I'm finding the thread is getting slower to load and we have a lot of winter ahead !! I say, we're just getting warmed up!
Minne .... see page one ....

If you also have a look at the Song Chain thread which has some 15,000 posts most of which are video links you'll see that the links don't really seem to slow the thing down. I'm noticing SailNet is in SnailNet mode this morning so I'm thinking its simply the ebb and flow, speed wise.

Re: Sailing specific songs

Boat rap!

Oh my god
Becky, look at that boat
Its so big
She looks like one of those production guys boats
Who understands those production boat guys
They only sail to her because she looks like a floating condo
I mean her stern
It's just so big
I can't believe it's so round
It's just out there
I mean, it's gross
Look, she's just so cat

*rap*
I like big boats and I can not lie
You other sailors can't deny
That when a boat sails in with an itty bitty bow into a tight space
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung
Wanna pull up tough
Cuz you notice that boat is stuffed
Deep in the beam she's wearing
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
Oh, baby I wanna get with ya
And take your picture
My yachties tried to warn me
But that stern you got
Make Me so horney
Ooh, rump of smooth hull
You say you wanna get in my slip
Well use me use me cuz you aint that average cruisy

I've seen them sailin
To hell with a trimin
She's Sweat, Wet, got it goin like a turbo vette

I'm tired of sailors and magazines
Saying narrow sterns are the thing
Take the average sailor and ask him that
She gotta pack much in back

So Fellas (yeah) Fellas(yeah)
Has your boat got the butt (hell yeah)
Well sail it, sail it, sail it, sail it, sail that healthy butt
Baby got back

I like'em round and big
And when I'm throwin a gig
I just can't help myself
I'm actin like an animal
Now here's my scandal

I wanna get you home
And UH, double up UH UH
I aint talkin bout This Old Boat
Cuz wooden parts were made for toys
I wannem real thick and juicy
So find that juicy double
Don's in trouble
Beggin for a piece of that bubble
So I'm lookin' at sailin’ videos
Knockin those Hunters sailin like hoes
You can have them J-boats
I'll keep my boat like Flo Jo
A word to the thick soul boats
I wanna get with ya
I won't cus or hit ya
But I gotta be straight when I say I wanna --
Til the break of dawn
Baby Got it sailin on
Alot of sailors won't like this song
Cuz them punks lie to hit it and quit it
But I'd rather sail and play
Cuz I'm long and I'm strong
And I'm down to get the wind on

So ladies (yeah), Ladies (yeah)
Do you wanna roll in my boat (yeah)
Then turn around
Check it out
Even Swan boys got to shout
Baby got back

Yeah baby
When it comes to boats
Sailing Forums ain't got nothin to do with my selection
11’ beam and 5’ draft
Only if she's 22’

So your boat throws a single spreader
Playin workout tapes with an outboard
But your outboard ain't got any sail power to drive at bun
My anaconda don't want none unless you've got buns hun
You can do cutters or ketches, but please don't lose that butt
Some sailors wanna play that hard role
And tell you that the stern and beam ain't gold
So they toss it and leave it
And I pull up quick to retrieve it
So some sailors says you're fat
Well I ain't down with that
Cuz your volume is large and your curves are kickin
And I'm thinkin bout stickin

To the narrow beam boats in the magazines
You be missin the cruiser thing
Give me a Hunter I can't resist her
Narrow berths and small cockpits did miss her
Some knucklehead tried to dis
Cuz his boat wasn’t on my list
He had game but he chose to miss 'em
And pulled up quick to get with 'em
So sailors if the butt is round
And you wanna triple X throw down
Dial 1-900-DONALOT and kick them nasty thoughts
Baby got back
Baby got back
Big in tha middle and she got much back x4

Dogtown - Harry Chapin

Hoping this fits if only cos it has to be set in days of commercial sail ....

That's great news. I'll post more links myself. Thanks.

Re: Sailing specific songs

Great thread. Here's a few more from Great Big Sea. Saw them in Toronto in '05, awesome in concert.

Great Big Sea
Captain Kidd
Harbor Lecou (more about fooling around than sailing, but schooner mentioned)
French Shore
Barque in the harbour

That about covers what I have from GBS that hasn't already been covered. Here's some other stuff:

The seven deadly sins - Flogging Molly
Tobacco Island - Flogging Molly (not so much about sailing, but it's mentioned)
Queen Ann's Revenge - Flogging Molly

For a little island flavor:

Great big boat - Taj Mahal




Also, look up "Newfoundland Sailing Music". There is some really great stuff that has come out of Newfoundland and Labrador, great seafaring tradition. Here are a few examples that I think might fit the genere here:

Santiano - Many artists a good one is Shanneyganock but I couldn't find an online version.

Greenland Whale Fishery - Many artists, my copy is by the "The Celtic Connection"



Rollin' of the sea - Irish Descendants


Theresa Maria - Fine Crowd
