A modern major criminal?

If you’re not familiar with the Major-General’s tongue-twister of a song, you can watch a snippet of the song (with a most Jack Sparrowish Pirate King) from Australia:

Or the entire song in the 1983 performance—which has Kevin Kline, Linda Rondstadt, and Angela Lansbury, with George Rose as the Major-General—here:

After you’ve watched how it’s done, try to sing along here:

And finally, print out my very own Major-Criminal’s song (it’s here) and upload the wordless (yes, Karoake) version of the tune here.

When you’ve mastered it, you’ll be ready for the Pirate King tour in September!  (And, I’d love to see a video of it on YouTube…)

Having fun yet?
