The Lyrics

Everyone knows the standard pirate trope of buried treasure. Even the pirates themselves, which can sometimes lead to a snag...
Carryin' the-e loot from some undefended towns
But where should it all go-o-o?
I've already made sure all the crew's been paid
No supplies are low
The obvious solution, ma-ate
Since we're pirates, the cliché
Is to create a big treasure tro-ove (gotta make a treasure trove)
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, treasure trove

Since it's obvious, the problem wi-ith that one option
Is that all pirates arou-ou-ound
Pick the same island, you'll find giant pi-iles
Of loot 'bove and undergrou-ound
So forgive me if I say "Na-ay"
Cause I know that you're gonna say
"We should head to the treasure tro-ove (let's go to the treasure trove)
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, treasure trove"

Near ev'ry day, pirates drop o-off plunder
Some don't even bury their damn loo-oot
And so when it's real sunny light reflects off the go-old
And blinds ev'rybody's remaini-in' eye-eye-eyes
So don't suggest those co-ordinates, ma-ate
I want more se-ecret fare
So before our ship springs one more lea-eak

Let's make our own treasure tro-o-ove (make our own damn treasure trove)
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh, treasure trove

"You know, for all that pirates are clever clogs, we are an unimaginative lot when it comes to naming things" - Jack Sparrow
