The Lyrics

Aye, this be another "Pirate" parody....about the little enjoyments of Pirate life unseen to most of ye...Ye things that make it all worthwhile and warm a Pirates' cold, cruel, callous heart...I'll be callin' it “Aye, Me Fav Pirate Things” For sure this will be bringing that 'warm & fuzzy feelin' to ye...
Greedy, cruel Pirates; aye, searchin' for treasure
Ransack yer ship and then kill for good measure
Mercy for no man; ye will walk the plank
Aye, it be for days like these I give thanks

Gray gruel that troubles me inner intestines
Leathery hardtack does cause indigestion
Eating for weeks on what's left of a rat
Guess on this diet one will not get fat

Keel-haulin' Captains; their throats I be slittin
Monster-ous deeds; aye, we Pirates commit them
Treacherous henchmen who plunder and kill
Aye, of these things I can ne'er get me fill

Thru me glass eye
I can't see things
All it does is stare
I turn me head slightly; the better to see
Aye, then I can see what's there

Bright northern lights and resisting that scurvy
Spending me nights with young women what's curvy
Wenches to bed when we plunder a land
Beautiful native girls; skin bronzed and tan

Nooses that rhythmically swing from the yardarm
Captives talk freely, aye, wish to avoid harm
Stacks of gold doubloons piled high on the floor
Aye, these be some of the things I adore

Vultures that prey on what's left of me rivals
One thing a Pirate knows well be survival
Floating adrift with but foul ale to drink
Whiffin' me armpit; good God, it does stink

Tossing captives
in the ocean
Brings me to remark
Don't think that yer life it be ending in vain
Ye'll be "Happy Meals" for sharks

Clever parody. But, Paul, is there a connection between your current involvement in income tax preparation and your current involvement in pirate parodies? Like, maybe, we could substitute IRS for pirate and the meaning of the parody would be just as appropriate?

This parody reminds me of a discount cruise I took recently. And another anecdote: I had a scripture study class back in my youth - one of the instructions was RSMP: "read, study, meditate, ponder." My friends and I referred to it as "rape, steal, murder, plunder." I guess piracy has always been more intriguing than priesthood. Which explains why Disney never had much success with "Missionaries of the Caribbean." (By the way, there's a Simon & Garfunkel parody for you: "I'd rather be a pirate than a priest.")br>
I'm rambling. You're clearly in your element here, RRRRRobinson. Funny funny stuff. My fave line is the out-of-left-field armpit one. And here's a thought: You really need to get a photo of yourself in an eye patch and a bandanna - and post it on the messageboard. (That's how we all picture you anyway. May as well make it official.)
