A Pirates Tale

"A Pirate's Tale" is an original song from "The Whale Episode" of Sid the Science Kid. Susie sings the song from the point a view of a pirate captain who tries to measure a whale using non-standard measurement - using the height of two crew members, the width of the sails and lenght of his ship.

Lyrics

GATHER ‘ROUND, MATEYS
AND LISTEN TO ME
COME HEAR MY PIRATE’S TALE
ABOUT OUR ADVENTURE OUT ON THE SEA
WHEN WE WENT TO MEASURE A WHALE
WE HAD NO YARDSTICKS
AND NO RULERS
AMONG OUR GOOD SHIP’S TREASURE
BUT BY USING THE THINGS WE HAD ON BOARD
WE FOUND A WAY TO MEASURE
BY USING THINGS WE HAD ON BOARD
WE FOUND A NEW WAY TO MEASURE
YOU SEE WE HAD TWIN COOKS, 2 TINY BLOKES
THEIR NAMES WERE JOE AND JIM
IF YOU STOOD THEM TOGETHER WELL THEY WERE AS TALL
AS OUR CAPTAIN PANAMA SLIM
AND WE HAD 3 SAILS TO CATCH THE WIND
TO HELP US ON OUR TRIP
AND THE 3 OF THOSE SAILS SIDE BY SIDE
EQUALED THE SIZE OF THE SHIP
THE 3 OF THOSE SAILS SIDE BY SIDE
EQUALED THE SIZE OF THE SHIP
ONE DAY WE SPIED THAT WHALE OF A WHALE
AND SAILED ALONG BESIDE HER
WE PULLED UP VERY CLOSE TO HER
AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO RIDE HER
HOW BIG WAS SHE? OH, SHE WAS BIG
I’M TELLING YOU NO TALE
WE SAW THAT OUR SHIP WAS EXACTLY THE SIZE
OF THAT WHALE OF A WHALE
OH, WE FOUND A VALUABLE TREASURE
AND BACK HOME THAT TREASURE WENT
THE TREASURE WE FOUND WAS HOW TO USE NON-STANDARD MEASUREMENT
THE TREASURE WE FOUND WAS HOW TO USE NON-STANDARD MEASUREMENT
