2005-07-17 “Sloop John B”

Somehow, I missed doing a song of the week last week, and this weekend nearly got away from me again. Over the Fourth of July festivities, they had members of the Beach Boys performing at the US Capitol. So, here’s one of the songs that my children still love to sing:

 

Sloop John B

aka Sloop Bill Gates

 


 

We come on the sloop Bill Gates
My brand new server is great
Around Seattle town we did roam
Coding all night
Tryin’ to make it work right
Well I feel so broke up
I want to go home

So hoist up the Bill Gate’s sail
The service pack’s still in the mail
Call for the MVPs ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up
I wanna go home

The first mate, Ballmer, got drunk
And broke into Bill Gate’s trunk
The constable had to come and take him away
Still running DOS at home
Why don’t you leave me alone, yeah yeah
Well I feel so broke up I wanna go home

So hoist up the Bill Gate’s sail
See how the hard drives hum
Call for the MVPs ashore
Let me go home, let me go home
I wanna go home, let me go home
Why don’t you let me go home
(Hoist up the Bill Gate’s sail)
Hoist up the Bill Gate
I feel so broke up I wanna go home
Let me go home
