MIDI File

Reginald: When I was born my birthmark was a pirate flag of black,
But nobody's ever seen it, for I wear it on my back!
I used to sweep the nurs'ry bath, and the soap-dish brig I sank,
And many a bold Brown Windsor I have made to walk the plank!
Men: And many a bold Brown Windsor he's made to walk the plank!
And many a bold Brown Windsor he's made to walk the plank!
Reginald: For I'm wiry, fiery Fili-Filibuster Brown,
The demon of the Dover Strait,
The terror of Canning Town!
The captains all quake, they get in a fluster,
They are white as chalk if you should talk of Brown.
Ladies: Of Mister Brown,
Reginald: Of Mister Brown, of Reggie Brown, the filibuster, that's me!
Ensemble: Oh, have mercy, please have mercy, Mister Brown!
For you're such a filibuster,
You are, you are!
The captains all quake, they get in a fluster,
When the hear the name of Filibuster, Filibuster Brown.
   
Reginald: You've heard about the Dreadnought, she's a tidy little bark,
But she's been to call on Davy Jones, tho' the papers kept it dark.
I met her and I sank her once right off the Spanish main,
So they sent out Jacky Fisher just to fish her up again!
Men: So we sent out Jacky Fisher to fish her up again!
So we sent out Jacky Fisher to fish her up again!
Reginald: For I'm dashing, smashing Fili-Filibuster Brown!
I stuck a boat-hook into her, and somehow she went right down!
She lost not a man from all of her muster,
For I sav'd the lot, great Percy Scott! I'm Brown.
Ladies: I'm Mister Brown,
Reginald: I'm Mister Brown, I'm Reggie Brown, the filibuster, that's me!
Ensemble: Oh, have mercy, please have mercy, Mister Brown!
For you're such a filibuster,
You are, you are!
The captains all quake, they get in a fluster,
When the hear the name of
Filibuster, Filibuster Brown.
   
Reginald: All round the briny British coast my name's a cause for fear,
And I've got a Long Tom gun as shoots the length of Southend pier!
I made a raid on Brighton beach, it was a great success,
And I captured fifteen hundred girls in summer bathing dress.
Men: And he captured fifteen hundred girls in summer bathing dress.
And he captured fifteen hundred girls in summer bathing dress.
Reginald: But I'm slender, tender Fili-Filibuster Brown,
They looted all I had on board and swam back to Brighton Town!
I couldn't rob them of even a duster,
For they didn't wear enough to spare for Brown.
Ladies: For Mister Brown,
Reginald: For Mister Brown, for Reggie Brown, the filibuster, that's me!
Ensemble: Oh, have mercy, please have mercy, Mister Brown!
For you're such a filibuster,
You are, you are!
The captains all quake, they get in a fluster,
When the hear the name of
Filibuster, Filibuster Brown.
