Avast Ya Scarvy Scum




A Children's Pirate Shanty
by Mark "Cap'n Slappy" Summers
(sung to the tune of Monty Python's "I'm a Lumberjack and I'm OK")


Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

Yo Ho, my friends I have a tale
of treasure, plunder, sea and sail
my story's bigger than a whale
it gets so deep, ye'll have to bail.

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

I like to fish, I like to fight
I like to stay up half the night
When I say "starboard" ye go right!
Me ma, she says, "Ye look a fright!"

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

I've got no hand but that's me hook!
I pillage stuff but I'm no crook.
Me booty's in this chest I took.
They'll write about me in a book!

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

And that's all there is to this song.
I hope it hasn't been too long.
A pirate's life might just be wrong
So grow up nice and big and strong!

Chorus
I'm a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late - till half past three!
And that's a peg below me knee!

Personalities

I want to document some things the kids say or have done so I don't forget.
Ozkar has pretend friends and he calls them his pretend friends, he loves to tell us stories about all of them. Right now his favorite thing to do is make cards for people or to draw pictures. I need to put him in an art class. He enjoys playing with Maia when she will play things that he likes and he is so sweet to Siena. He loves t.v. and he loves playing with friends. He is excellent at Math and can't wait to learn how to read. In school he is learning the alphabet in sign language. He is so funny because he thinks that he can just make a sign for something and that is the sign language for it. I don't have the heart to tell him different.
Maia is our tomboy/princess. She is not afraid to step on a grasshopper or a spider or to make mud in our backyard but she wants to do those things in her little mermaid nightgown. She sings her princess songs about dreams coming true and is the first to Siena's side when she is crying. She loves her big brother and misses him when he is at kindergarten. But fortunately for me her personality is a lot calmer when Ozkar is at school. She isn't getting into everything when its just the girls at home. She is our little actress. So look for her in about 20 years on Broadway.
Siena right now doesn't do much but she is a cutie. She was just diagnosed with Torticollis. Its a condition in her neck where she prefers to keep it bent to the right. So her head is starting to be misshapen. She will see a physical therapist next week to correct the problem. So far its just her neck, I pray that nothing else happens with this condition. She has recently started to smile. Never at mom but occasionally at her brother and sister and always at our alpaca lion on the wall.
