lyrics

We raise the Jolly Roger upon the highest mast
Set sail on our quest sure to lead towards death
We drink and we dance as we pillage and plunder
Raising our voices with a YAR HAR HEY!

Fire the cannons and board the ship
Kill the crew and bring back the loot
This is the life we cherish and live
So lift your pints of ale! YAR HAR HEY!

Sailing far into unknown lands
We take to a port to procure some grog
In a bar we are told of a glorious quest
Leading to beer, women, and treasure untold

A man with one eye, reeking of scurvy
Tells us the tale of his upturned crew
While voyaging to this lawless island
They were scuppered by a giant beast

YO HO YO HO YO HO YAR HAR HEY!
YO HO YO HO YO HO YAR HAR HEY!

He tells of a serpent terrible and grim
With the eyes of death and a spike laden tail
Lurking in the seas far to the West
Guarding the sacred isle of women and mead

But we are brave warriors of the sea
And do not fear any creature large or small
We are bound to find this imaginary land
So he hands us the map and his lucky captain’s hat

YO HO YO HO YO HO YAR HAR HEY!
YO HO YO HO YO HO YAR HAR HEY!
YO HO YO HO YO HO YAR HAR HEY!
YO HO YO HO YO HO YAR HAR HEY!

Sailing away to this far away land
With grog and cutlass together in hand
We dance and we sing as we near the shore
Dreaming of approaching treasures and gold

We raise the Jolly Roger upon the highest mast
Set sail on our quest sure to lead towards death
We drink and we dance as we pillage and plunder
Raising our voices with a YAR HAR HEY!

Fire the cannons and board the ship
Kill the crew and bring back the loot
This is the life we cherish and live
So lift your pints of ale! YAR HAR HEY!

Upon the land we come to find
Fountains of rum and beer and wine
Wenches abound and stroll the woods
Happy to catch a pirate’s eye

For a while we stay but soon we
Remember our great love of the sea
We must leave this wondrous land
But I swear we will return again

As we board our ship and begrudgingly depart
My heart races as the mighty seas rip and part
We are met face to face by a creature of old
I draw my blade and the cannons we fire!

With a roar the monster rushes at us
But we will not let it send us to the Locker
On a rope I swing with my mates next to me
And with a mighty swipe we cut down this beast!

Sailing away to this far away land
With grog and cutlass together in hand
We dance and we sing as we near the shore
Dreaming of approaching treasures and gold

We raise the Jolly Roger upon the highest mast
Set sail on our quest sure to lead towards death
We drink and we dance as we pillage and plunder
Raising our voices with a YAR HAR HEY!

Fire the cannons and board the ship
Kill the crew and bring back the loot
This is the life we cherish and live
So lift your pints of ale! YAR HAR HEY!
