Pirate Song

I think a little piracy at an early age is probably a good thing. I figure if you don’t let it out in a safe place, it will show up someplace else. Like Wall Street!

Up in the morning out of bed
I put a bandana on my head
I put a patch up on my eye
Run downstairs and then I cry
Run downstairs and then I cry

CHORUS
Yo ho ho, don’t you know
A pirate’s life is great-so
‘Cause we don’t take baths,
and we don’t take naps
And we don’t clean our plates-o

When they put food on my plate
I will not touch the stuff I hate
They say “Won’t you take a bite?”
I shout out loud with all my might
Shout out loud with all my might

CHORUS

Then they sit me on their lap
They say it’s time to take a nap
I might be tired but I don’t go
A crabby pirate just says no
A crabby pirate just says no

CHORUS

I got a pirate ship and a pirate crew
I’ve got a pirate brother too
Captain is my pirate’s rank
We’ll make our parents walk the plank
We’ll make our parents walk the plank

CHORUS

I eat my dinner at the end of the day
I put my pirate stuff away
Take a bath, climb in bed
Pirate dreams are in my head
Pirate dreams are in my head

CHORUS
