II. Introduction...

Welcome ye surly scum to the Kapp'n Female Song's Guide! And that's enough 
pirate talk for now ;) Why on earth would you'd be reading this Guide? Well 
besides having too much time on your hands (hehe, join the club ^^), you love 
Kapp'n! And want to know ALL his little sea ditties off by heart.

If your wondering why I bothered to create this Guide, it's simple. I noticed 
that the few lyric guides around, had just the male versions of the Kapp'n's 
sea shanties, which is a little unfair to say the least ;) So! I set about 
finding all female songs we are treated too by our local ferryman, and 
hopefully, when this guide is completed, things will be a little fairer from 
now on. ^-^

So! Enjoy the lyric's fer the Lassie's, and remember...

NO CRYIN!!! :p

III. Kapp'n, The Captain...

1) General Information

Other than being just another Animal in this game we call life, Kapp'n is a 
turtle who ferries you back and forth between the mainland and Animal Island. 
It's indicated in some of his songs, that he's had quite a shady past (See  
KAPP'N, I'D BE), but is still seen as one of the most cutest characters 
you'll find in the game. His interests include ferrying the odd passenger, 
singing nonsensical poems, and eating his favorite of all foods - cucumbers.

2) Location

Consult your Animal crossing booklet to find out how to connect your Nintendo 
Gamecube to your Nintendo Gameboy Advance, and you shall soon be listening to 
one of many soothing sea shanties. After the game has loaded, run (or walk if 
need be) down to the dock. If you have connected your Gameboy Advance properly
, you should see Kapp'n waiting inside his boat. Simply speak to him to 
begin your journey.

IV. The Songs...

1) About the Songs

Each song themselves are comprised of 3 parts, or 'Stanza's', which are of 
course randomly generated for each trip. The first part is comprised of 2 
stanza's, then a spoken part and finally, the last stanza. 

The songs differ of course, depending on the gender of your character. The 
female song's tend to be a bit more romantic, hinting towards love etc. The 
main difference between the male and female songs are the 1st and 
spoken part's. The final part is the same for both.

2) First Part Lyrics

*** Note ***
Stanza's between the *** are found for both female and male characters.


Ye can't go wrong
With me cucumber song
Cucumbers, Cucumbers
They make me strong

They're the best ripe an' cold
Long before they gets old
They're so good, no one good
Let them grow mold


Here: take good note
What moves old Kapp'n's boat
Be an iced extra-nice
Cucumber float.

Honestly, though, dear mum!
It hurts me poor tum
To just eats cukes an beets
That ain't so yum!


Life on the sea
Can at times, lonely be, when
Just whale's an wee' snails
Listen to me.

But on the briny sea swells
Me heart it beats well.
Through sea air, I'll float
Where me soul compels


I must declare lass
Please do not despair
Strong I be, Safe with me
I'll get you there.

Now ol' Kapp'n I'd be
I row your ferry
In the past on me mast
Crossbones you'd see


It's quite a treat
For you to hear me bleat
Charge I don't, pay you won't
Aren't I so sweet?

But me heart does foretell
That me poor shell
Will not help this sea kelp
Say his farewell


Oh listen ye
To my secret shanty
About the mean lady
Who hurt me

She took me old boat
And set her afloat
Just because curt I was
With the ol' goat


Me puppy dog
He likes to play leapfrog
When were done having fun
We drink eggnog

We be silly clowns
Who just fool around
Me and he, pals we be
I love that hound


Strong the wind blows
An' me boat, well, she goes
But to where? I don't care!
That much I know.

Clear night skies and moon-
beams they fill up me dreams
Like the time that sail o' mine
Tore at the seams


Oh! Dainty girls with
Yer curves an' cute curls
Yar I bet my songs set
Yer heart's awhirl!

I'm so smooth, an' oh-so fair
An' quite debonair
I'd combust if I just
Had some more hair


Oh, sweet young lass, please
Don't ye think me crass
Just because smells I does
Like a sea bass

Life out on the sea
Ain't no cakewalk you see!
There's no one but the sun
To comfort me

3) Spoken Part Lyrics

"Me dear ocean treasure, ye make a sea flower bloom in my heart..."

"Say there young lassie, ye can't swim, can ye? Neither can I...anymore..."

"Ahoy there Moby Jane! Ye wanna stop rockin the boat? The sea's in me heart, I 
don't want it in me pants!"

"Yar ye look a bit burly...Care to wrestle me?"

"Yar I've had all I can take of this....Are ye ever gonna stop cryin?"

"Yar tell me this miss...Are ye in love?"

"You look a touch queasy...Do I scare you me dear lass?"

"Ye know me young starfish, you've grown into quite the pretty young lass
lately, Have ye ever dated a turtle?"

"Yer know somethin lass? I...I should have never stopped shavin me legs. Nar!
That was a bad decision..."

"Yar I'm just curious, could a lass like yerself fall fer a turtle like me?"

"Hey ye great googly eyed fish o' the black deeps...Stop staring at me like
that! I might just...melt..."

"I love the wee youngsters...their so...gullible..."

"Yar there miss you'll be gorgeous one day! Yar, I gots an eye for beauty!"

"Tell me somethin girlie...do ye know how to make a good 4-star chilli?" 

"Ya Lassie are you OK? You don't be hurt, do ye? No, I'm not hurt neither..." 

4) Final Part Lyrics

*** Note ***
All of these final part lyrics are found for both male and female 

While I do love me cukes 
they sure curl me flukes
But now please! Zucchinis 
give me the spooks... 

Zucchini spooks...

Listen: Come cold or warm
I fear no dark storm
See I gauge life's a stage
where I perform

Yar! I perform...

Hey there me old mum
Yer boy he feels glum
Without my lullaby
Sleep just won't come

It just won't come...

A lone pebble slip slides
beneath the cold tides
It's movement is a hint
where love's truth hides

There love's truth hides...

Be ye brave me wee fish
Don't squeal out or squish
Don't deter: search fer yer
heart's fondest wish

Find yer heart's wish...

I'll sing me a fair rhyme
to pass away time
Watch me words like seabirds
through the sky climb

Upward they climb...

I feel such low down shame
me lovely dear dame...
I'm a rat - I laughed at
yer mum's weird name

What a weird name...

Me soul, onward it sails
me belly, it ails
I'm so glum 'cause me tum
feels full of snails

So full of snails...

Me heart feels savage pangs
from love's wicked fangs
I think oft of the soft
song that she sang

That song she sang...
