A Pirate’s Life for Me

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
We don’t pillage, plunder, nor rifle or loot.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We chase off thoses whalers and don’t give a hoot.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
We spray ’em ‘with water ’till they’re blue in the face.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We play ’em then ram ’em, run them out of the race.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
We stalk our fell prey in the pitch black of night.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We scare them off running at first break of light.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

We’re angles and mentors the salt of the sea.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
We keep a honed ship, she’s as tight as she be.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.

We’re loved by the people who cherish our call.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Our passion’s the ocean, to save it for all.
Drink up me ‘earties, yo ho.
Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.
