1671 – Bathroom Commander

Bathroom Commander
To the poop deck, mateys!

I Am the Captain

Oh, I am the captain
and you are my crew.
I’m telling by yelling
your duties to do.
Since I’m the commander –
the highest in rank –
you’re following orders
or walking the plank!

Go hoist up the anchor!
Go shimmy that mast!
Do this thing! Do that thing!
And do them both fast!
Sail harder! Row better!
Prepare for attack!

Hey! Where are you going?
Oh please, please come back…
