The Lyrics

Well, matey's I was just listenin' to me recent parody piece to this OS, "Dope Sheared His Weiner" and it occurred to me that it would also be makin' a fine "Pirate" parody with a little here it be..OH...and be sure 'n imagine the sound of peg-legs walkin' on me deck whenever ye be hearin' those dratted 'cowbell' sounds in the OS instrumental parts....Aarrrrggggghhh!
[instrumental intro]

Aye, Pirates we be
Scourge of Seven Seas

Pirates, aye, frighten Seamen
Upon ye deck yer lifeblood will drain {Pirates be cruel, Har-de-har}
Scurvy they be {Great fear engendered}
Matey, do ye see land? {With sharks ye'll sleep, sir}
Walk ye plank, aye, then die {Ye'll feed the sharks, sure}
Matey's, aye, there be land

Har, de-har, har-har
Har, de-har, har-har

[instrumental break]

Now ye time is done
In the deep ye'll drown

Davey Jones; 'ave ye met 'im?
Aye, at the bottom of the deep blue sea {Davey have ye met?}
Forty leagues on down beneath the waves {Have ye met Davey, yet?}
Down at the ocean's floor will be ye grave {Way down deep 'neath the waves}
Aye, underwater, sure ye'll meet death today {Sea can be ye graveyard}
Down deep, matey {Beneath the sea, sir}
Made ye walk the plank {Ye'll feed the sharks, sure}
Aye, we'll laugh at yer cries {Aye, hear our laughter}
Matey, aye, we're mad

Har, de-har, har-har
Har, de-har, har-har

Aye, we all drink rum
"Glubb" sounds as ye drown
Pirates, aye, we bring madness
Black flag brings fear as we say "Come about"

Aye, ye'll be hopin'
that we'll ne'er appear
Our scurvy crewmen
ye'll surely fear

For certain, truly
yer death be near {Laid to rest by me blade}
"Someone, Save me" {No one there to hear}
Aye, yer at me whim {From the mast, hang ye high}
Ye will be hung until yer dead {Hung from the highest yardarm}
Knees be shakin'; can't stand {Ye will be hung, Har-har-har}
Plundered, matey {Ye'll meet Grim Reaper}

[instrumentals out to end Fade]
