The Dark Doom of the Sea

AARR! You land lubbers be careful! This be the name of our feared pirate ship!

Beware of Captain Stinkin’ John Sparrow (currenly plundering in North Carolina today) and First Mate Dirty Charity Cash with mates Decrepit Brit Bellamy (formerly known as Big Girl) and Cap’n Liza Leadblade (formerly known as Little Girl).

We’ll be dancin’ the hornpipe and singin’ this song all day!

A Children’s Pirate Shanty

by Mark “Cap’n Slappy” Summers (can be sung to the tune of Monty Python’s “I’m a Lumberjack and I’m OK” – or make up your own!)
Chorus
I’m a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late – till half past three!
And that’s a peg below me knee!
Yo Ho, my friends I have a tale
of treasure, plunder, sea and sail
my story’s bigger than a whale
it gets so deep, ye’ll have to bail.
Chorus
I’m a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late – till half past three!
And that’s a peg below me knee!
I like to fish, I like to fight
I like to stay up half the night
When I say “starboard” ye go right!
Me ma, she says, “Ye look a fright!”
Chorus
I’m a pirate! That I be!I
sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late – till half past three!
And that’s a peg below me knee!
I’ve got no hand but that’s me hook!
I pillage stuff but I’m no crook.
Me booty’s in this chest I took.
They’ll write about me in a book!
Chorus
I’m a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late – till half past three!
And that’s a peg below me knee!
And that’s all there is to this song.
I hope it hasn’t been too long.
A pirate’s life might just be wrong
So grow up nice and big and strong!
Chorus
I’m a pirate! That I be!
I sail me ship upon the sea!
I stay up late – till half past three!
And that’s a peg below me knee!
