    I thought it was more from the gut, gotta start the rumbling down low to produce a good quality “Arrrrr” with all the proper tonal variances.

    Also it’s probably inappropriate to use “Arr” in conjunction with any non-pirate kids song. Such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, very bad form to put an “arr” before it. Can’t think of any piratey kids songs off hand so it’s probably safe to say no “arr”s in kids songs. Then again pirates can pretty much do what they want, provided they can take the consequences should they be caught.

    “Arrrr Woot!” is also probably right out.

  7. Ben Kendall said on

    I stand corrected, didn’t think of putting it at the end.
    “Arrr, Twinkle twinkle little star” just didn’t work out, but your version works out great, made me laugh too with the mast part :D
