We’ll drink all of your rum and count your gold

And when the rum is gone we’ll throw you overboard

So tell us where the booty is and maybe you will get to live

But there are no guarantees on the high and deadly seas

Our life’s a never ending trip of pillaging there’s no end to it

Up and down along the coast we plunder villages and we boast

 

This is the Pirate’s Song, we ho ho ho all over the world

The pirate’s life is free on board the Pearl, yes, she’s our girl

 

We were once the orphans you ignored

Bastards, runaways and the cursed

But we found a place to go, somewhere you hear the cannons roar

Under sail on open water the only law is captain’s orders

We have to love him like a father or it’s Davy Jones’ locker

Under him we will explore and take the things we want by force

 

This is the Pirate’s Song, we ho ho ho all over the world

The pirate’s life is free on board the Pearl, yes, she’s our girl

 

We live tall tales of danger and crossing swords

While the English hunt us down like lowly dogs

They’ll never find us no matter how they search by order of the Crown

We’ll hide for days in Pirate’s Cove while they’re voyaging high and low

We won’t surrender if we’re caught or they’ll hang us with ropes taut

We’ll always outmaneuver them until we turn into skeletons

 

This is the Pirate’s Song, we ho ho ho all over the world

The pirate’s life is free on board the Pearl, yes, she’s our girl

This is the Pirate’s Song, we ho ho ho all over the world

The pirate’s life is free on board the Pearl, yes, she’s our girl
