The Lyrics

Aye, yet another "Pirate" parody for ye consumption...and tizn't even the one what I had 'rig'nally planned to cast at ye...but ye other...well, I had already used that OS for a "non-Pirate" number earlier this week, so I thought it best to give it a rest for a spell...perhaps next week for that one...
Aye, we raped
and, aye, we pillaged
Tonight be when we ransack ye village
Ahoy! Pirates we be
Ahoy! Soon ye will bleed
I'll run me sword through thee

Then ye life
it will be taken
Walkin' down ye plank; knees be shakin'
Ahoy! Real mean we be
Ahoy! Ye'll drown at sea
Be buried in the deep

As he feared
ye Captain; keel-hauled him
Sharks be circlin' in; set to maul him
Aye, threw him off the ship
Aye, sharks began to bite
Hearty we laughed at his pitiful plight

Then his crew
sent them a-swimmin'
Pled and carried on just like women
Ahoy! There in the drink
Ahoy! Soon ye will sink
With Davey Jones ye'll be

~ ~ ~ (Screaming & thrashing sounds) ~ ~ ~

Then at dawn
set out to plunder
Who we'll ravage next, aye, we wonder
Ahoy! A merchant ship
Ahoy! Not well equipped
To deal with such as we

Bared me knife
at Captain “Landlubber”
On his knees the coward did blubber
Annoyed - by his weak pleas
With joy - Aye, did the deed
Then laughed, aye, heartlessly

Sharks smelled fear
headed over to maul him
Crystal clear what soon would befall him
Sharks, aye, they be hungry
He whet their appetite
Keep this up and the sharks will need to diet

Tough and cruel
Pirates we be man
Soon be sailin' the Carribean
Ahoy! String me some pearls
Enjoy - ahh, native girls
This be the life for me

ARRRR ye gonna write every pirody in th' book, matey? That be fine with me, if they're all this good. Also liked that Caribbean rhyme, I did. I'm not going to talk like a pirate anymore; I find it disturbing. Very good.
Paul Robinson - February 17, 2005 - Report this comment ye find it disturbing to be talking like a Pirate, do ye? Mayhaps yer afraid, lest it become a permanent part of yer person...aye, should not be alarmed, for 'tho I be writing many a Pirate parody of late there be no affect upon me everyday manner of discourse, matey...
