You begin to sing "Elanthian Sea Chanty" by an unknown author.

"He didn't rest peaceful, he haunted and shrieked,
To me, way-hey, pass the rum 'round.
A tight roll of paper was held in his beak.
Give me some time to drink this rum down."

"I took yonder scroll and I read it aloud,
Way-hey, oh what a sound.
Dead Jonesy watched from his ghost-feathered shroud.
Just like most times, my troubles compound."

"A new mania be now storming the sea,
Yo ho, the vast oceans abound.
Be ye highest of classes or just bourgeoisie,
Give it a look, but don' get yerself drown'd."

"I thought to m'self, 'What be a bourgeoisie?'
Way-hey, it makes me heart pound.
A twelve-headed monster it must surely be,
And in no time, I put ship t' ground."

"And now the cruel and dark oceans surround,
Yo ho, I'm scared of the sea.
That critter be waitin' to sink me ship down,
It waits for all time, that cursed bourgeoisie."

The song closes.
