Sing Like A Pirate Saturday: All For Me Grog

Pirate Puppy
 
What’s in the adorably sinister mind of Jimmy D this day?
 
Why, I feel like singing!!
 
NOOOO, not Christmas songs you loveable dolt, you can get those danged dittys playing at any old American mall or Chinese apothecary’s/cat-gutting shop this time of year!!
 
I’m talking about…PIRATE SONGS! Because friends and neighbors it’s…. Sing Like A Pirate Saturday!
 
(It’s not a national holiday or anything, but dangit, it SHOULD be…don’t you think? 😉 )
 
Today’s salacious sea shanty comes down to us from 18th century sailors in the Royal Navy, a happy naughty tune called All For Me Grog.
 
Grog being the nickname these salty seamen (don’t say that out loud, it’s gross 😛 ) gave their daily rum ration, which was often HEAVILY watered down by their officers to make the spirits last, while being chintzy with their sea dogs.
 

This version is a creative rendition by the Midwestern Renfest folk band (thank you Wikipedia 😛 ) The Jolly Rogers

Not bad at all kids. Though I’m still a TAD more partial/biased to Texas’ own Renfaire pirate band The Bilge Pumps 😀

Because in his world, the Rum is NEVER gone,
