Brigid's fanart, "Drunken Robot" brought this old sea chanty to mind and I thought I'd see what I could do to apply it to the situation of a drunken Ping. For reference, my version is followed by the original. I tried to keep the same rhyming scheme as the original. And yes, I know, some lines don't have the right number of syllables but that's why God made notes of varying duration. I've sung it and it comes out pretty well.
