The Lyrics

Not at all what you were thinking....
(Cannon goes off)

Forty-seven pirates heading for the islands
South east west north, venturing on forth
Trimmin' up the mainsail, through a mighty strong gale
I'm in the cabin thinkin' bout my treasure

CHORUS:
This map's old, but I don't care
We'll find that loot and we'll take all our shares
Dig up that gold that we like best
Heading for the Caymans, looking for that great big chest
That great big chest
(Big chest)

First mate's on the poop deck looking at a shipwreck
Jack is by the beer keg carvin' up his peg leg
Forty-seven sailors, bunch of scurvy dogs
Got to stay in line, stay in line
Or you're gonna get flogged

CHORUS

Now put your hooks in the air and wave 'em round and round
You can live it up, live it up, long as you don't drown
Gonna sail to the left, sail to the right
I just know that we'll find that stash tonight

CHORUS

Great big chest
Great big chest
(Huge chest)

Looking for the great big chest
The great big chest
Huge chest

Brrrrrrrrring this boat in slowly, we gonna anchor it just off shore
We're a bunch of outlaws
Let's go and bring our shovels and head to the right
We gonna follow this map into the pale twilight
Until we find that treasure, then we'll feel alright
This bunch of jolly buccaneers will get rich tonight. Say!
Dig it up! Dig it up!

Thousand gold doubloons, hundred silver spoons, got us every one singin' happy tunes
The rubies and the diamonds, the crystals all are shinin' yeah we've got sweaty shirts but we just hit pay dirt
We're glad we found the treasure but now all our backs hurt
Bo'sun bet we wouldn't find it, now we'll make him wear a skirt!

Digging up the great big chest
The great big chest
The great big chest
(Big chest)

Now we're leaving Caymans, sailing towards Jamaica
Salt pork in the storeroom, watch the cannons go boom
Lookout's in the crow's nest
Give me one more huge chest
Give me loot, give me loot
We'll get rich and live it up

Now put your pegs in the air and wave 'em round and round
You can live it up, live it up, long as you don't drown
Gonna sail to the left, sail to the right
I just know that we'll find that stash tonight

CHORUS

The great big chest
(Huge chest)
The "Wild Wild West" music video had lots of disembodied arms and legs in it. Did they once belong to women....or pirates?
