Yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder,
we rifle and loot
Drink up me 'earties yo ho!
We kidnap and pillage
and don't give a hoot
Drink up me 'earties yo ho!

Yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me.

We extort, we pilfer, we filch and sack
Drink up me 'earties yo ho!
Maraud and embezzle and even hijack
Drink up me 'earties yo ho!

Yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me.

We kindle and char
and inflame and ignite
Drink up me 'earties yo ho!
We burn up the city,
we're really a fright
Drink up me 'earties yo ho!

Yo ho yo ho a pirates life for me.
We're rascals and scoundrels
and villains and knaves
Drink up me 'earties yo ho!
We're devils and black
sheep and really bad eggs
Drink up me 'earties yo ho!

Yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me.

"He stuffed his arse with broken glarse and circumcised the skipper" et al.

A classic, but I don't think the Pistols wrote it. Anybody have an earlier recording?

Anyone heavily into pirates should visit Bristol, UK. There are pubs there which were used by smugglers & pirates, but EVEN BETTER, there are people who actually TALK like pirates!

Since we're talking about fun tunes a la the Caliente singalong, I put up a couple mp3s in a web folder if anyone's interested...

http://www.goofspot.com/music/

Someone asked about Annette's Date Night In Hawaii - dunno if that was a request, but I put it up. Also Jeri Southern's great version of An Occasional Man. And two Japanese hawaiiana numbers from Midori Tashiro, including a version of Pineapple Princess.

Dunno for sure if this'll work for anyone, and they're big big files (like 3-5 Mb each) so be forewarned, and probably don't bother if you don't have a fast connection.

The Captain's daughter Charlotte,
she was born and bred a harlot.
Her thighs at night were lily-white,
by morning they were scarlet!

Disney is not above auctioning off old stuff like this (or employees taking them if they're not "important"). 2 years ago Disney sold off the "Disneyland" sign that sat outside the park. they took it down during the remodeling and sold it on ebay. it went for 35,000.

He owns one of the biggest Electrical outifts in the U.S.. I believe that's how he gpt the Pirates. Anyone ever been to Barbados? Sam Loards Castle? He was a hard core pirate. Lot's o stories there. They mix a drink called a Buccaneer(sp) that makes you climb giant palm trees and get stuck!!! Been there, done that! They have a boat that's called the Jolly Roger (booze cruz to the max!). They fill you up with flying fish sandwiches make you dink gallons of Rum Punch and then make you walk the plank!! Barbados is cool.
