Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Aye, “Pirate Love”...be there anything like it?
If I be a buccaneer
and ye be me matey
Would ye sail ye stormy seas?
Come with me to Haiti

If I be a scurvy dog
Would ye be a bed-wench?
Would ye share me bunk at night?
and ignore me breath-stench

Trim me sails and raise me mast
Bring me gruel for dinner
Sail with me the oceans vast
I'll make ye a sinner

If I be a coarse brigand
despoiling looter
Would ye wait at me right-hand?
Stand by yer freebooter

If I be a pillager
with steel blade a-shining
Would ye heft me treasure chest?
To me place of hiding

If I be a buccaneer
and ye be me matey
We would sail ye Seven Seas
and set sail for Haiti

Aye, we'd sail ye Seven Seas
Settle down in Haiti

Pieces of five, indeed... maybe if they make a sequel to "Pirates of the Caribbean" you might suggest they use it as a sig tune :-)

Stu - I already hava tar...no...that's a terrible and nonsensical pun...uh...Kristof - Good idea...hmm...maybe...I DO live fairly close to the ocean...about 4 or 5 miles in from the Marina area here...just a quick drive down Jefferson, over to Lincoln and then left on, oh, I think it's Fiji Way, or something like that. Thinking about some other Pirate numbers I might want to try soon. Thanks! OH...hey, did you hear the one about the little boy out "Trick-or-Treating" on Halloween dressed as a Pirate? This housewife answers the door and says, "Oh my, a PIRATE! ! But where are your buccaneers?" Kid replies - "Underneath me 'bucking' hat, lady"...well...guess it works better when told orally...
