I Got Blisters On My Fingers!

Here is my first Laser sailing song in response to Sam Chapin's request to write a Laser sailing song. Somehow this is supposed to help him build his fleet?

To be sung to the same tune as a very similar song by the Beatles called Helter Skelter.





When I get to the bottom I go back to the top where I crash
And I tack and I turn and then I go for a splash
'Til I get to the bottom and I see you again, yeh, yeh yeh

Do you, don't you want me to cross you
I'm coming on fast, and I'm going to pass you
Tell me, tell me, tell me, c'mon tell me it right
Well you may be a sailor but you ain't no Scheidt.

Now Laser Sailor,
Laser Sailor, Laser Sailor, yeah ...

a-Will you, won't you want me to beat you
I'm coming on fast, but don't let me cheat you
Tell me, tell me, tell me again
You may have a Laser but you ain't no Ben.

Look out!
Laser Sailor, Laser Sailor, Laser Sailor, oooh...
Look out, 'cause here I come ...

When I get to the bottom I go back to the top where I crash
And I tack and I turn and then I go for a splash
'Til I get to the bottom and I see you again, yeh, yeh yeh


Do you, don't you want me to cross you
I'm coming on fast, and I'm going to pass you
Tell me, tell me tell me, c'mon tell me it right
Well you may be a sailor but you ain't no Scheidt.


Look out!
Laser Sailor, Laser Sailor, Laser Sailor

Look out! Laser Sailor ... I'm coming down fast
yes he is
yes he is
coming down fast
oh now Laser Sailor ... woo hooo


(yelled)
I got blisters on my fingers!


Watch this space for possibly more Laser sailing songs. You have been warned.

Wow... Much better than I would have ever hoped for.

Great job Tillerman! I never could understand those words; great translation.

Now what the %#@! did Michael Jackson mean by "hold on, to the porche doors don't stop till you get enough"?
