The Lyrics

Aye...Piratin' - it wasn't all fun & games, ye' know...only so many Captains ye can keel-haul, lilly-livered cowards to mock and then hang from ye yardarm, villages ye can pillage, sharks ye can feed hapless captives to...sooner or later most Pirates, aye, maybe even all Pirates would face music more sour than that which they played for their dancin' an altogether different jig to an altogether different tune come judgment day, aye...I think after this one I be hangin' up my Pirate scabbard for a spell and try to find some things funny not involvin' the commitance of mayhem on me fellow man...but I may be back on the High Seas from time to time to share some Pirate Moments with gets it ye blood, ye know...
I'm a Pirate; sail the high seas
On the ocean, aye, ocean so blue
Where's ye treasure? Aye, ye will tell us
Or I'll run me blade right through you

With me matey's we terrorize the seas, aye
See our black flag; know ye be ill-starred
We be blaggards, aye, we be lyin' scoundrels
When ye see us, ye best be on guard

Aye, we're free, free-bootin'
Har! We be, be lootin'

Jolly Roger, be sailing to ye harbor
From the West, aye, on a wind blowin' hard
Vicious, mean curs, we will ransack ye village
With me saber, aye, will cut ye apart

Aye, we're free, free-bootin'
Har! We be, be lootin'

~ (backing vocals) ~
Freebootin', aye, be lootin', freebootin' and we
be shootin' , aye, we be lootin' and freebootin'

Gonna end up in Hades for certain
Gonna burn there, till the end of all time
For the heinous deeds I've committed
Me fate there; aye, it will fit me crime

~ (with backing vocals) ~
Me fate then; meet Satan
Aye, Satan, me mate then

~ (with backing vocals) ~
Said Satan, "you're late, man"
Aye, have date, man, with Satan

~ ~ ~ (Repeat out to fade) ~ ~ ~

Just wanted to read other parodies of this song since a few people commented on mine. I love this one, be great to have someone sing it in a pirate's voice accent! Very creative, I just hope you pirates don't strike me and steal any of my goods at sea! :)
