How Do You Talk Like A Pirate, Matey?

adapted/arr. Teresa Jennings

Take one very well-known old song, add some hand percussion, Boomwhackers® and boisterous singers who love to say "Arrr!," and you've got an instant hit on your hands. Especially suited for Talk Like A Pirate Day, we wouldn't dream of telling you not to use it any other time. It's just too much fun!

The tambourine and hand drum are optional, as are the Boomwhackers®. They are all quite basic and easy to play though, and for your convenience, we have extracted the parts and put them in this issue on pages 36 and 37.

Arts and Crafts Extra! - As a special extension for this tune, artist Kristyn Johnson has created a template and instructions for making a pirate hat and hook that your young pirates can make and wear themselves.
