Arrr - A Pirate's Poem
Arrr! Pass me some rum and get me ma sword
For today we will capture a ship and throw men overboard
We will commandeer their ships and take all the gold
Come now you bag of dirty scoundrels pirates are bold
Rise da sails and let the skull and bones drive fear
But keep the British flag handy to disguise our ship ya hear?
Row you pig suckers, row or I feed yah to the sharks!
Are you Pirates or Pretty dresses I ask? Arrr!
There is gonna be attacking and fighting and I don't intend to loose
After ma victory I will laugh and dance while sipping on booze
Row you dwindling half dead walking corpses!
Row, we have water to cover you broken old horses!
Give me that there looking glass. Ha Haa! Ship up yonder
Time to loot shoot and plunder
Oh my. looks like a pretty little ship belonging to the queen
We simple have to be gentlemen and never to be mean.
May be if we are nice she will invite us for cookies and tea.
And pardon our crimes and give us the Castle key
Look at you dumb brainless fools shaking yah heads in agree!
Load up the canons, Sharpen the blades, I want this over before Salmagundi
I assure you old hogs, after this loot we will live richly
There she be, such a beautiful ship to destroy
But Arrr I say, Time for war!
