Hello "All" Rockin Royals

March 17th, page 72, post 1434 ... the topic was an invitation to any one on the ROYAL thread to re-write the lyrics to an old song from 1958 "Rockin Robin".

I revised the first verse and hope some of you will sign up to revise the other three verses. We only need three writers (or a team) to make this work. The writers have 17 months to play with this, and collaborate on the final version. Come on folks!
Later we can decide how we want to present our song. First we must find singers. Will they want to sing at Karaoke or at the Meet and Greet?
"Rockin' Robin" is a song written by Leon René under the pseudonym Jimmie Thomas and recorded by Bobby Day in 1958. It was Day's only hit single, becoming a number-two hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

Great Idea! I will try to help with the lyics but definitely won't be helping out with the singing. Believe me, you should thank me for that.

Franky,

Can you post the first verse that you've written so we know how to pick it up from there.

Guess we could all do Karaoke after a fair number of large glasses of wine

Thanks Dorothy, I'm really happy with the cruises we're doing for the rest of 2012 since I'm not allowed any long car rides or airline flights. We've got 2 10 day cruises on the Emerald that I want to book, but started out Monday with 6 FCC's and now I'm out of them already. Had to book one Bermuda trip without one, but that doesn't matter b/c they don't give you anything. It was cheaper to go on the cruise than to stay in NJ for 4 days. If you want, John would be happy to help you with the countdown clocks, he's so good at computer stuff, all I want to do is throw the da-- thing.

I'm not much of a writer but thought I'd try my hand at this and have some fun. Here is what I came up with and it's certainly open for additions, corrections or better ideas.

Every cruisin' woman, every cruisin' man
Party on the Royal because we know we can
The Captain of the ship, the whole staff too
Are gonna make this cruise a Royal ballyhoo

Hi Franky,

Just returned from our cruise and when Marcia said she wrote a verse, with Dorothy's help i found the thread. Kudos to Marcia, great job! I'll let you know if and when we come up with something. For certain I,ll be willing to join in the singing (maybe i can convince Mark too). What fun!

OK, I'll give it a try:

Verse Three


A cocktail party, and afternoon tea.
A lunch, a slot pull, won’t you dance with me.
A song fest, tours to everyone’s delight
We’ll sing, we’ll rock, we’ll dance all night.
Rockin’ Royals, eat, eat, eat, eat
Rockin’ Royals, stamp, stamp, stamp those feet
Rockin’ Royals, we’re really gonna rock tonight!
