That song cracks me up.  A band I was in about 10 or 12 years ago did a cover of it.  What a mess that was, but great fun after about 100 beers and fifty bong hits.
 
 "When suppertime came the old cook came on deck sayin'.
 Fellas, it's too rough t'feed ya.
 At seven P.M. a main hatchway caved in; he said,
 Fellas, it's bin good t'know ya!"

"Pirate Jenny" as performed by Nina Simone (written by Weill/Brecht/Blitzstein but this is the version that matters, therefore one can authoritively say that "Pirate Jenny" is  by Nina Simone. Don't belive me? Then go listen to it. After you come out from under your bed scared shitless, let us know what you think).

It really did crack them up too, poor bastards.  That song is required playing on Upper Michigan radio...must be played every hour no matter the format.  If I was Rhett I'd get all indignent now about how insensate you are, "What if the relatives of those poor mariners are reading this bboard, etc..?"

Yes it's true.  I'm a very a bad and insensitive person.  But there's no denying the comedy in lyrics such as:
 
 "Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings
 in the rooms of her ice-water mansion.
 Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams;
 the islands and bays are for sportsmen!"

It's more tragedy than comedy.  Any fish caught in Lake Michigan should not be eaten.
