The Nymph's Node: Reliant K pirates


We enter The Nymph's Node and we are treated to most unusual show...


The (Lego) Pirates Who Don't Do Anything
by Reliant K
remixed in music video form by BrickFilms in stop motion animation

Arr, arr, arr, arr

We are the pirates who don’t do anything
We just stay at home and lie around
And if you ask us to do anything
We'll just tell you we don’t do anything

Well I’ve never been to Greenland
And I've never been to Denver
And I’ve never buried treasure in St. Louie or St. Paul
And I’ve never been to Moscow
And I’ve never been to Tampa
And I’ve never been to Boston in the fall

We're the pirates who don’t do anything
We just stay at home and lie around
And if you ask us to do anything
We'll just tell you we don’t do anything

And I’ve never hoist the main sail
And I’ve never swabbed the poop deck
And I’ve never veer to starboard
'Cause I never sail at all

And I’ve never walked the gangplank
And I’ve never owned a parrot
And I’ve never been to Boston in the fall

'Cause we're the pirates who don’t do anything
We just stay at home and lie around
And if you ask us to do anything
We'll just tell you we don’t do anything

Well I've never plucked a rooster
And I'm not too good at ping ball
And I’ve never thrown my mashed potatoes
Up against the wall

And I’ve never kissed a chipmunk
And I’ve never gotten head lice
And I’ve never been to Boston in the fall.

(spoken)
Huh? What are you talking about?
Whats a rooster and mashed potatoes have to do with being a pirate?
Hey, thats right!
We are supposed to sing about pirate-y things.
And who's ever kissed a chipmunk?
That's just nonsense! Why even bring it up?
Am I right? What do you think?
I think you look like Captain Crunch.
Huh? No I don't!
Do too.
Do not!
You're making me hungry.
Thats it! You're walkin' the plank.
Says who?
Says the Cap'n, thats who!
Oh yeah? Ay Ay, Cap'n Crunch! hehehehe
Arrrgggghh
Yikes!

And I’ve never licked a spark plug
And I’ve never sniffed a stinkbug
And I’ve never painted daises
On a big red rubber ball

And I’ve never bathed in yogurt
And I don’t look good in leggings
(You just don't get it.)
And we’ve never been to Boston in the fall!

(spoken)
Pass the chips!
Who's got the remote control? Here it is!
Time for Heraldo.
It's definately time for Loch Nech.
Ohh.. I don't like this show.
Hey look! I found a quarter!

In back corner of this dive we see a local merchant beckoning us over to see this gem just in from overseas...


fyi: E's latest YA book, Boyfriend from Hell, is almost ready to be released. He has received his ARCs and those of you who won one here in March will be getting it in the mail in the coming weeks.

In celebration of the ARCs, E would like to send out 3 to lucky winners. Visit E's site to enter the contest.

In another corner, we see two people partially hidden by a seashell curtain. If you look closely there is an oriental wooden puzzle box on the table. The hand that opens the box sports an unusual tattoo on its arm. A narwal.

  4. Have to agree with Samantha, I LOVE Veggie Tales! Fortunetly my youngest still watches them so I tell people I'm getting them for her. (I actually watched The Pirates Who Dont Eo Anything, just the other day!)

  5. I kinda like both versions, the Reliant K and the actual Veggie Tales version, is that sad? A couple of years ago I had to buy my mom a Veggie Tales CD for this song, people at the checkout counter gave us weird looks. You look like Captain Crunch!
