Marxman 'Ship Ahoy'

Irish rappers… Irish political rappers. In this one they explain Third World exploitation to a nautical musical accompaniment (the song is about ships sailing to enslave people during the great age of maritime imperialism). It should not work, but it does. As music, I mean; the actual socioeconomic analysis is a bit simplistic.

we should consider adapting the infamous song
"the potatoes aren't lookin the best"

to Irish rap format

(sorry i have forgotten the original authors)

It sounds like something Ding Dong Denny O'Reilly would do.
