Sea Heroes – Rhyme Challenge

For the first time in my life, I tried to sing a sea shanty. Who helps (English is a foreign language for me) to add some verses?

When I heard the sea shanty written by Mark Batley and Terry Forshaw = the “Early Adaptors” – I asked them immediately, if they would give a permission to try a cover; who can help to write more verses? Listen to the great original:

1
Captain Cook
Wrote a book
Rode his turtle
Through the night
Likes to swim
With young Polly Anna

Captain Bligh
Lost an eye
On the top deck
Of his ship
And everyone was happy
Ever after

CHORUS:
If Kismet rules your life
The sea should be your wife
Get on a ship
You know you will be free
So sail upon the sea
And sail upon your dream
No matter where you go
Come back to me
——————————

P.S.:
who likes to help some more verses featuring other heroes of the sea? English is a foreign language for me, so I need your help to add some verses to the 2 verses of Mark and Terry (and then all together: the chorus till you are in trance…)

  1. Captain Stoert-
    ebeker was hurt
    ‘Cause of one Simon
    From Hamburg,
    Refused to die,
    Had his mates released.

    Captain Scott
    Felt too hot
    So he headed
    For the pole…
