"They’re an Unwelcome Crew"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

They’re an unwelcome crew
To maritime
People, because the things they do
Could mean dyin’
On the rocks, dyin’.

They go out to land spits
And try to bring down
Many sailing grand ships—
These brigands then snatch what they have found. . .
Snag a brig’s wealth, then do
Another crime,
Sea slime!

Say “adieu”
If this crew
Should draw you
And your crew onto ground
Then come and snare
The boat’s treasury—
You’ll likely drown
In the sea.

They’re an unwelcome crew—
Criminal kind.
