Feb 12 2009Music Video: I Never Thought I'd Be On A Boat

NOTE: Video is clean version but still has lots of bleeping out since every other word is a bad one. Watch at full volume.

This is the latest from The Lonely Island, the SNL crew that made a music album. The song, I'm On A Boat, is about being on a boat. Which *yawn* is nothing special if you're a pirate captain like me. Screw your boat, I'm on a ship, bitches.

I'm on a ship, I'm on a ship, I'm on a pirate ship

You best swab my deck or I'll fish-hook that lip
I got cannons -- I've got an anchor too
Come pillage with me on the ocean blue

I'm on a ship, I'm on a ship, I'm on a pirate ship
I gots a wooden leg, bitch, I walk with a limp
We gettin' treasure -- and that booty too
I pop my pistol "YAAAAR!" while I'm aiming at you

And that, my friends, is how it's done. Now where do I sign for the record deal?

Thanks to Jon, who is more than welcome to come sail away with me, Styx style.

Pretty much the best video ever.

and first...

Now where are my flippy floppies...

The GW aka The Worlds Biggest Vagina

who gives a crap if youre first? you dont need to post it because there are numbers on each post stupid!! this video was hilarious

Shits weak!

for all those in the know, wonder what a boat that size costs roughly????.

@6 - Nowadays? Probably the same price as a small island nation...

Not only is it funny, but it's actually a pretty well done song. I dig it.

i'm pretty sure this is the best video ever.

I'm on boat. Take a good hard look at the motherf#&king boat.

Song of the year?


I didn't bother watching it, the image and title are stupid enough...

Jizz! This is nothing compared to..
JIZZ in my Pants! Jizz Jizz Jizz

Can't watch this.this Not work at work!! ;c

Just bought the album at lunch. "Shrooms" = Genius.

Better than 98% of the hip hop music out right now

The yacht is called Never say Never http://yachts.monacoeye.com/files/oceanfast_never_say_never.php
The fact that it is a classic Bannenberg design would increase the price due to his reputation...By far the greatest yacht designer. i would put it anywhere between 4 and 8 million, a large range but i don't know the condition and these type of boats dont hit the market that often

The pirate ship rap ain't half bad!

Hehe the vids great, nice production.

The only sucky thing about it IMO is the vocoding of T-pain's voice. Vocoding is soo overdone with pop dance music since Daft Punk, it's no wonder so many people can't stand it.

what's sad is that this really does sound like a radio song.


@18, I agree. sounds like he swallowed after giving h**d to a harmonica player.

@18, 20

It's called a talkbox.

Wow, people are really uninformed. Vocoder? Talk-box?

Its called "auto-tuning."

Look it up, and you get T-Pain's picture.


Auto-tune uses a phase vocoder. Who's uninformed now bitch?

Aaannnddd.. Talkbox produces the same result, though it's direct input rather than a processor.

you know what sucks more than the jizz song. is this song. just cause you drop f-bombs in the song, doesnt make it funny. rap all ready does that. so its not funny.

these guys should join on jimmy fallons new late show, so i can avoid all the suck all at one time.

I have loved these guys since about 2005 but I just don't like this and can't figure out why other people do?

@21 & @22 christ who cares.

They're both pretty similar and nobody here said they're music experts, so what. We all know we're talking about the same thing & that it sucks. Maybe it's a new form of vocoding talkbox called the Obamacodvoxer and nobody knows wtf they're talking about. Are you in a studio right now sitting next to Peter Frampton? Do you scour every word everyone writes here before googling anything different so you can say WRONG or YOU'RE STUPID?

If you do please come over and rub my back, naasy likes the backrubs.

OLD..are you senile...this has been up for weeks

OLD..are you senile...this has been up for weeks

I hope they continue to make these videos to show how much of a clown all those rappers look like when they rap about how much money they got and big booty bitches they slap around, keep up the good work SNL!

@18 did you mean Cher?


It's my job here to correct the mistakes of others. Don't hate.

@31 No, but that believe song was another one that popularized obamacodvoxing....

<3 Ollie

Looks like the dudes had fun making this clip!

I have no issue communicating without the use of profanity. Quite frankly, the english language offers much more colorful adjectives. The point being made is simply that in this country, where this blog is hosted, we have freedom of speech. The same freedom of speech that would protect this blogger (GW) in court. I find it rather disingenuous of him to post NSFW content and genitalia jokes, then censor our comments about them.

Yarrr This Be Stupid. Like Yaaarrrr Mom.

all the sh!t from SNL is starting to ooze out into the world. i thought at least this site would be a safe haven from pustules of necrotic maggot infested tissue like samberg.

36 is right. doesn't have the same effect a good ol fashioned fbomb


This is a complete photoshop job. You can tell its a fake becvause the shadow's are all wrongf.

RThis is exactly like that scene in the movie Never BAck Down where Max fell asleep and was attacked by a creepy guy with a weird glove, who wasn't michael jackson.

"I'm on a ship, I'm on a ship, I'm on a pirate ship

You best swab my decks or I'll hook that lip
I got cannons -- I got an anchor too
Come plunder with me on the ocean blue"

new quote for everything

those lyrics were hilarious, geekologie writer. well done.

I prefer Prestige Worldwide's presentation of Huff 'n Doback's "Boats 'n Ho's":

@37 Funny thing, "This video is not available in you country"

Yeah Cali is really out there.

Epic satire.

Their only picking on Jorma cause he's the sensitive one..... not Kablamo

fake nuthing fagmow......

thanks 2 teh mrgeekologiewriterofthemofugtgayear
