HORNBLOWIN' ACROSS THE OCEAN BLUE



I must be getting desperate ... this is a parody of a spoof!  However, the spoof is one of the
all-time classics: "Star Trekkin' Across The Universe."


CHORUS:
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue,
On the Indefatigable, under Captain Pellew
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue
Only going forward, 'cause duty's all we do!

Seaman Styles, report!


There's Frog ships on the starboard bow, 
starboard bow,
starboard bow,
There's Frog ships on the starboard bow,
starboard bow, again!   STYLES:
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir,
Dead Frog, sir,
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir, dead!


Seaman Matthews, report!


 MATTHEWS:
Those cattle are awfully thirsty, sir!
Awfully thirsty,
Awfully thirsty,
Those cattle are awfully thirsty, sir!
Awfully thirsty brutes!


There's Frog ships on the starboard bow, 
starboard bow,
starboard bow,
There's Frog ships on the starboard bow,
starboard bow, again!   STYLES:
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir,
Dead Frog, sir,
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir, now!


CHORUS:
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue,
On the Indefatigable, under Captain Pellew
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue
Only going forward, duty's still all we do!


Even an Acting Lieutenant: Mr. Kennedy!


  ARCHIE:
They mean to kill us, Horatio!
Mean to kill us,
Mean to kill us,
They mean to kill us, Horatio!
Kill, Horatio, kill!


 MATTHEWS:
Those cattle are awfully thirsty, sir!
Awfully thirsty,
Awfully thirsty,
Those cattle are awfully thirsty, sir!
Awfully thirsty, now!


There's Frog ships on the starboard bow, 
starboard bow,
starboard bow,
There's Frog ships on the starboard bow,
starboard bow, again!   STYLES:
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir,
Dead Frog, sir,
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir, now!


Lieutenant Horatio Hornblower!


   HORATIO:
Ha ha, you've nothing to fear from the enemy, Archie!
Nothing to fear,
Nothing to fear,
You've nothing to fear from the enemy, Archie!
Nothing to fear at all!



  ARCHIE:
They mean to kill us, Horatio!
Mean to kill us,
Mean to kill us,
They mean to kill us, Horatio!
Kill, Horatio, now!


 MATTHEWS:
Those cattle are awfully thirsty, sir!
Awfully thirsty,
Awfully thirsty,
Those cattle are awfully thirsty, sir!
Awfully thirsty, now!


There's Frog ships on the starboard bow, 
starboard bow,
starboard bow,
There's Frog ships on the starboard bow,
starboard bow, again!   STYLES:
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir,
Dead Frog, sir,
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir, now!


CHORUS:
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue,
On the Indefatigable, under Captain Pellew
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue
Only going forward, 'cause we like the view!


Our Captain, Sir Edward Pellew!


  PELLEW:
Look at your new uneeform, man!
Your uneeform,
Your uneeform,
Look at your new uneeform, man!
You've blubbed on it again!


   HORATIO:
Oh, you've nothing to fear from the enemy, Archie!
Nothing to fear,
Nothing to fear,
You've nothing to fear from the enemy, Archie!
Their powder's no threat to us!



  ARCHIE:
They mean to kill us, Horatio!
Mean to kill us,
Mean to kill us,
They mean to kill us, Horatio!
Kill, Horatio, now!


 MATTHEWS:
Those cattle are awfully thirsty, sir!
Awfully thirsty,
Awfully thirsty,
Those cattle are awfully thirsty, sir!
Awfully thirsty, now!


There's Frog ships on the starboard bow, 
starboard bow,
starboard bow,
There's Frog ships on the starboard bow,
starboard bow, again!   STYLES:
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir,
Dead Frog, sir,
A good Frog is a dead Frog, sir!
Dead Frog, sir, now!


PELLEW:
Damn your impudence, man!  Your uneeform, your uneeform!

ARCHIE:
Those Frogs are awfully thirsty, Horatio!

HORATIO:
They say we have God on our side, men!

MATTHEWS:
Those cattle mean to kill us, sir!

STYLES:
A good uneeform is a dead uneeform, sir!

PELLEW:
Let us hope the Almighty never chooses to ... aghhhhh ...

CHORUS (fading out):
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue,
On the Indefatigable, under Captain Pellew
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue
Only going forward, 'cause duty's all we do ...

Hornblowin' across the ocean blue,
On the Indefatigable, under Captain Pellew
Hornblowin' across the ocean blue
Only going forward - on to HH2!
