Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Nook Color using sony format ebooks

Yo, ho, ho!

 

 

ONE FOR THE CREW

by The Jolly Rogers

We don’t want to argue and we don’t want to fight
Just wanna drink our whiskey and flirt with the girls all night
We’ll ship out in the morning but until we do
Come pull up a chair me friend, we’ll pour a shot for you.

High-O! We’ll drink one to the barmaids
High-O! One for the barkeep, too
High-O! We’ll drink one to our fair ship
High-O! And one for the gallant crew

We don’t want a grog now and we don’t want a rum
We can get that on the ship when the all work is done
There is only one choice while we’re here in town
Have another shot of whiskey and a beer to chase her down!

[CHORUS]

We don’t want to leave here, no we don’t want to go
When the mate tells us to shove off we’ll tell him “Hell no!”
We’ll stay here ‘til the morning and go straight to the ship
Then we’ll all come straight back here when we’re through with our trip.

[CHORUS]

When my time has come boys and I must pass on
Don’t want a fancy service full of all the same sad songs
Just stick me in a whiskey barrel and plant me in the ground
But run a hose down to me, I’ll get thirsty lying ‘round.

[CHORUS] x 3

 

 

Arrrrrrr!     

 

 

:smileyvery-happy:

Re: Nook Color using sony format ebooks

Like most lyrics, it's much better when you can hear the tune in your head. 

 

But they're a great indie pirate/ sea shanty band:  http://www.chivalry.com/jollyrogers/

OK.  Good advice.  Unfortunately, this forum provides no option to block you out.

You should be fine with only one 7, just add an extra ice cube.
