lyrics

yo ho ho it's a pirates life for me
drinking lots of swill and heading out to sea
raiding ships for treasure
coming back to shore
me matey be on one side
at the other be my whore

when i wake at morning
i look up to the sun
on the ships deck
the days work has begun
our black sails are open
the course is fully set
i wonder what we'll find today
or who we will have met

yo ho ho it's a pirates life for me
drinking lots of swill and heading out to sea
raiding ships for treasure
coming back to shore
me matey be on one side
at the other be my whore

up on the crows nest
looking to the west
what do i see?
it be a treasure chest
it's on a royal vessel
guarded on both sides
men get your swords
we'll take em by surprise

yo ho ho it's a pirates life for me
drinking lots of swill and heading out to sea
raiding ships for treasure
coming back to shore
me matey be on one side
at the other be my whore

taking what you can
giving nothing back
the sailors beg and plead for us
to cut a little slack
but that is not our way
for we are very proud
and in the pirate's code,
mercy's not allowed.

yo ho ho it's a pirates life for me
drinking lots of swill and heading out to sea
raiding ships for treasure
coming back to shore
me matey be on one side
at the other be my whore

i dream of gold and diamonds
retire on a private island
or maybe i will die one day
roll the dice and sail away...

sail away?
sail away...
yay? okay!!!!

yo ho ho it's a pirates life for me
drinking lots of swill and heading out to sea
raiding ships for treasure
coming back to shore
me matey be on one side
at the other be my whore

Dragon Slayer Brooklyn, New York

in the magic land of silatria

the wise king theodorf faced a grave dilema

an evil dragon terrorized his lands

so he told his warriors to take a sword in hand

but none returned no none could defeat it

and wise king theodorf feared he would be unseated
