Three Simple Rules for Titanic Fans

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue.  Every little child knows that three ships set sail to discover the New World. But did you know that only two ships survived the return trip?

The Santa Maria ran aground off the coast of Haiti on Dec. 25, 1492 and was destroyed. Columbus learned his lesson and the Sailing Rulebook was born.

420 years later Titanic sailed into an iceberg and the rulebook grew. 

100 years later Costa Concordia and Captain Schettino forgot Rules 1 and 2.

Terrorists are Coming To Town

Terrorists are coming to town.

 

We better watch out
We all might die
Stay home don't go out
I'm telling you why

Terrorists are coming to town.

 

TSA's making a list,
Airlines aren't checking it twice;
We'll never find out Who's naughty or nice.
Terrorists are coming to town.

 

Wall Street's closed when you're sleeping
Drops 1,000 points when you're awake;
Some rule fool trades 16 billion shares
instead of 16 million.
So be good for Goldman's Sake!

 

Rule Fools are running Wall Street.
Rule Fools are running this town.

 

No more need to worry
Cause Rules are coming to town.
Cause Principles are coming to town.

 

O! We better watch out!

BP is gonna try,
To stop the 5,000 feet underwater oil spout

By giving a containment dome a try.

 

I know their Experts have
The Knowledge to fix it.
One day we'll know

Why the Blowout Preventer blew it.

 

Rule Fools are running Wall Street.
Rule Fools are running this town.

Terrorists are coming to town.

Terrorists are coming to town.
