TMS507-06

"A Capital Ship" is a traditional song that takes its lyrics from a 19th century poem by Charles Edward Carryl called "The Walloping Window Blind." The tune and the song's chorus are taken from the traditional sea shanty "Ten Thousand Miles Away."

Glenda Jackson performs it in The Muppet Show episode 507 with her crew of pirates on the ship they have converted the Muppet Theatre into.
