Those of you reading this MUST reply before Christmas, which is just 3 days away.

Does anybody know any carols that many people may not know? I have a love for the classics, such as Jingle Bells, and in Pirate101, I sing Jingle Bells the pirate way. I also like Deck The Halls, one of those songs you can easily change the lyrics anyway you like. Here's the pirate version of Jingle Bells so far. Some lyrics rhyme, some don't, and please note that the chorus does not change. Just the other lyrics:

Dashing through the sky,
In a ship very silent and sly,
O'er the windlanes we go,
Laughing to and fro,
Anchors on ships dropping,
Making enemies cower.
Oh, what fun it is to sail,
And sing a sailing song;
(Chorus)
A day or two ago,
I thought I'd sail in a ship,
And soon Miss Fan Flanders
Was seated by me side.
The sails were lean and lank,
Misfortune seemed their lot.
We crashed and almost sank,
And we got upsot.
(Chorus)
Now the sky is clear,
Go it while you're young,
Take the girls tonight,
And sing this sailing song.
Just get a brand new ship,
Two-forty is her speed.
then hitch her to the port,
and crack, you'll take the helm!
(Chorus)

And, that is Jingle Bells, Pirate Version. Now, any songs you are eager to share?

I saw 3 ships come sailing in,
on Christmas day,
on Christmas day,
I saw 3 ships come sailing in on Christmas day in the morning.
And who was on those ships all 3,
on Christmas day,
on Christmas day
And who was on those ships all 3, on Christmas day in the morning?
T'was Boochbeard and Mr. Gandry,
on Christmas day,
on Christmas day
T'was Boochbeard and Mr. Gandry on Christmas day in the morning.
And all the cannons on Skull Island shall BOOM!
on Christmas day,
on Christmas day
And all the cannons on Skull Island shall BOOM! on Christmas day in the morning.

(Jingle bells)
Someone please explain
PVP to me
is the purpose not to just have a good time?
What is the appeal in such crazy sport?
Why don't we just toss the score and sing a pirate song.
Yo-ho-ho Yo-ho-ho.
sing it all real loud.
maybe if we're lucky we'll disturb all skull island.
Yo-ho-ho Yo-ho-ho
Screech it till we're hoarse.
(It might not be wise to do this irl of course)

(Good King wenselsomthin')

Ugly outfit shopping time
just don't tell Mormo
if he sees me in these threads he may set me on fire.
Bonnie rigged hers with LEDs
so it lights up brightly
blinky lights on scratch wool
must endure this crew daily.

(Joy to the world)

Joy to the world
EXCEPT FOR KANE
I hope
that CLOCKWORK
RUSTS

Oh armada oh armada?
Why are you all so weak and stuff?
Oh armada we all can see the one you hate just isn't me
Oh Armada Oh armada
I think you all need a hug.

And for the grande finale!

On the twelfth day of the spiral Kingsisle gave to me

12 spiders from scrippin'
11 ships a sailin'
9 friends online
8 times I've been beaten
7 pets snacks from bosses
6 armada elites
5 Pets I own!
4 bottles of yum
3 top companions
2 elites yet to see
and
Kane's dysfunctional body mounted on the side off my ship or possibly in my ship but most likely on my wall!

Happy Holidays Stay gold and Kai out. Gamzee Face!

Swab the deck with boughs of Holly
Fa la la la la la la
Tis the season to be jolly (rogers)
Fa la la la la la la
Don we now our pirate apparel
Fa la la la la la la
Sing the ancient Spiral carol
Fa la la la la la la
See the Yuletrogg there befor us
Fa la la la la la la
Now he'll croak along with the chorus
Fa la la la la la la
Follow me in your leisure
Fa la la la la la la
Onward to sink ships and plunder for treasure
Fa la la la la la la
Morphing pets as the year passes
Fa la la la la la la
Visiting Moo while the gold amasses
Fa la la la la la la
Sing we pirates all together
Fa la la la la la la
Heedless of windlanes and weather
Fa la la la la la la
La la

Those are all great songs, so great work being creative, pirates! Since this is Christmas Eve, anyone who wants to do some last minute posts, please do so now. After noon on Christmas Day, nobody is allowed to post here anymore. A new Christmas post from me will appear next year, in 2015. Farewell, pirates! I will be checking for any other posts that I did not see before after Christmas. Remember, you can still post on Christmas morning, but after noon, this post will have to be shut down.

They say happiness is a thing you can't see,
A thing you can't hear,
I disagree...

Happiness is whatever you want it to be...

Happiness is standing beside me
I can see him
He can see me
Happiness is whatever you want it to be
Happiness is a high hill
Will I find it?
Yes, I will
Happiness is a tall tree
Can I climb it?
Watch and see

They say happiness is the folly of fools
Pity poor me
One of the fools

Happiness is smiling upon me
Walking my way
Sharing my day

Happiness is whatever you want it to be...

Happiness is a bright star,
are we happy?
Yes,we are

Happiness is a clear sky,
Give me wings,and let me fly.

For happiness is whatever you want it to be....

(A high five to whoever guesses what film this song is from!And yes,it's a Christmas movie.In the meantime,from the same film...)

Of all the days in all the year
that I'm familiar with
There's only one that's really fun
December the 25th

Correct!
Ask anyone called Robinson
or Brown or Jones or Smith
Their favorite day
And they will say
December the 25
Correct!

December the 25th, me dears
December the 25th
The dearest day in all the year
December the 25th!
Correct!

At times we're glad to see the backs
of all our kin and kith
But there's one date we celebrate
December the 25th
Correct!
At times our friends may seem
devoid of wit and pith
But all of us are humorous
December the 25th
Correct!

If there's a day in history
that's more than any myth
Beyond a doubt one day stands out
December the 25th
Correct!
I don't hear any arguments
So may I say forthwith
I wish that every day could be
December the 25th!

Just one more, before the season passes:

The Friendly Beasts
My pirate Captain brave and good,
First set sail on a raft of wood.
The friendly beasts around her stood,
My pirate Captain brave and good.
I, said the Horse, stalwart and tall,
I was the first to answer her call,
I've fought by her side and we've had a ball.
I, said the Horse stalwart and tall.
I, said the Goose humble and grey,
She's my captain, who I obey.
It's been like this every single day,
I, said the Goose, humble and grey.
I, said the Crane, lanky and long,
I tell her what to do for I'm never wrong.
It's because of me, that she's so strong,
I., said the Crane, lanky and long.
I, said the Goat, nimble and wise,
With her I've sailed the Spiral's skies.
I'm by her side when my Dragonfly cries,
I, said the Goat nimble and wise.
I, said the Bull, brave and calm,
I stand by her side to keep her from harm.
It's not been easy - pass the wound balm,
I, said the Bull brave and calm.

Simply wonderful Esperanza! What a great, descriptive representation of some of our fine and faithful crew members. Love the humor mixed in as well-- especially the wound balm. Very well done and thank you for sharing, I really enjoyed it.

That was just lovely. That is one of my ultra favorite Christmas carols from early childhood. Your phrasing is flawless. Thank you for sharing it.

You've never heard this carol, "The Friendly Beasts"? Please look it up, it's a lovely carol about the animals surrounding baby Jesus in the manger.
