Boat Theme Songs

So who has a boat theme song? Fess up and post it. I from one for my boat:

Rubber Ducky youíre the one,
You make sailing time lots of fun,
Vo-vo-dee-o!
Rubber Ducky, joy of joys,
When I sail you, you make noise,
Rubber Ducky youíre my very best friend itís true
Oh, every day when I, make my way to the sea
I find a little fellow whoís cute and roomy and chubby!
Rub-a-dub-dubby!
Rubber Ducky youíre so fine,
And Iím lucky that youíre mine.
Rubber Ducky, Iíd love a whole pond of,
Rubber Ducky, Iím awfully fond of you!
Oh, every day when I, make my way to the sea
I find a little fellow whoís cute and roomy and chubby!
Rub-a-dub-dubby!
Rubber Ducky youíre so fine,
And Iím lucky that youíre mine,
Rubber Ducky Iím awfully fond of you!

I ripped it off from Semese Street, but you have to take what your boat names gives you.

what do ye do with a drunken sailor--
not recommending it be yours, but is plain to see on occasion.....
is time worn chantey for bringing up anchor....

Re: boat theme songs

Our boats theme song is "Roam" by the B52s

"Roam if you want to
Roam around the world
Roam if you want to
Without wings, without wheels"

Nothing to do with the name of the boat, but it works for us.

Re: boat theme songs

List of best boat songs is the worst

August 20th, 2010 at 01:54pm Matt Trowbridge
People love lists. So the media is always coming up with more. Problem is, they almost always get them wrong. The latest example is a list our outdoors writer, Doug Goodman, points out in his Quick Shots in Thursdayís paper: The National Marine Manufacturerís Association, in its Discover Boating promotional campaign, named the 10 best boating songs:
First of all, several of the songs arenít even about boats: No. 2 Brandy is about a sailorís girlfriend; No. 8 Dock of the Bay is about hanging out at the beach and No. 9 Son of a Son of a Sailer is about, well, the son of a son of a sailer.
Second of all, there is no Bob Dylan song on the list. Come on! When the Ship Comes In should be top three, at least.
Thirdly, No. 6 Proud Mary is an easy, easy No. 1.
Doug complains that Row, Row, Row Your Boat was left out.
Our sports editor, Randy Ruef, wanted the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald included. But thatís a piece of overwrought drivel.
Sports writer Emily Tropp voted for Iím on a Boat, from a Saturday Night Live routine by Andy Samberg.
I would have included When the Ship Comes In, Sloop John B, Yellow Submarine, Michael Row Your Boat Ashore and Come On Down to My Boat, Baby. And thatís just off the top of my head.
Here is the official, much-flawed list:
Boats (Kenny Chesney); Brandy (Looking Glass); Come Sail Away (Styx); If I Had a Boat (Lyle Lovett); Into the Mystic (Van Morrison); Proud Mary (Credence Clearwater Revival); Redneck Yacht Club (Craig Morgan); Dock of the Bay (Otis Redding); Son of a Son of a Sailor (Jimmy Buffett) and Southern Cross (Crosby, Stills & Nash).
Hey, at least they had the decency to put down the CCR version of Proud Mary instead of the Ike and Tina Turner cover.
If any of you have a different favorite boat song, or want to comment on the list, please add your two cents below and also send any replies to Doug Goodman at dgoodman@rrstar.com.

    I just want to echo that Sloop John B is a great song.
    <LI class=comment id=comment-2>2. Steve Gregg | August 20th, 2010 at 2:55 pm
    Couple of popular songs they missed:
    Iím Your Captain - Grand Funk
    Donít Rock the Boat: The Hues Corp.
    Iím a little surprised it took until the third paragraph to mention Dylan. I would have put the over/under at three sentences.
    <LI class=comment id=comment-3>3. Matt Trowbridge | August 20th, 2010 at 3:09 pm
    I was trying not to be overbearing about Dylan. Thatís also why I didnít lobby him for No. 1. Ö As much as I love Dylan, any reasonable music fan would put Proud Mary at No. 1 as a boat song. Ö I would have also nominated Old Man River from Showboat, but people said it was about the Mississippi, not the boat. I say the whole musical was about a boat, so that should count.

Re: boat theme songs

Eileen Quinn, don't remember the song title, but the lyric goes something like:

"If it ain't broke, don't use it.... "

She has some great boat songs! See Eileen Quinn - music for sailors ... and normal people. She was cruising the NW Carib/Rio Dulce area when we were there. Heard her live several times.

Re: boat theme songs

I know its a little twisted, but we often use the chorus from Goodnight Saigon - Billy Joel

And we would all go down together
We said we'd all go down together
Yes we would all go down together
