Quotes: Pirate
Fly our flag, we teach them fear
Capture them, the end is near
Firing guns they shall burn
Surrender or fight there's no return
Under Jolly Roger!
Running Wild, "Under Jolly Roger"

Oh some are fond of red wine, and some are fond of white,
And some are all for dancing by the pale moonlight:
But rum alone's the tipple, and the heart's delight
Of the old bold mate of Henry Morgan.
John Masefield, "Captain Stratton's Fancy"

Terrorizing suckers on the seven seas
And if you've got beef - you'll get capped in the knees
We got sixteen men on a dead man's chest
And I shot those suckers and I'll shoot the rest
The Beastie Boys, "Rhymin' and Stealin'"

He was the mildest-manner'd man that ever scuttled ship or cut a throat.

With a hi hi ho and a hi hi hey
We're bound to be close to the sea
Our captain will stand on the bridge and sing
Pirates are all we can be
With a hi hi ho and a hi hi hey
We're hoisting the flag to be free
We will steal the show
Jolly Rogers, go
We are wolves of the sea.
Alestorm, "Wolves of the Sea"

They murder coldly and detachedly
Whatever comes across their path
They throttle gullets as relaxedly
As fling a rope up to the mast.
At wakes they fall upon the liquor
Then stagger overboard and drown
While the remainder give a snigger
And wave a toe as they go down.
Bertolt Brecht, "Ballad of the Pirates"

Yar, har, fiddle-de-dee
Being a Pirate is all right to be
Do what you want 'cause a Pirate is free
You are a Pirate!

And those buccaneers drown their sins in rum
The Devil himself would have to call 'em scum
Every man a board would've killed his mate
For a bag of guineas or a piece of eight
A piece of eight
A piece of eight
A five, six, seven, eight
Muppet Treasure Island, "Shiver My Timbers"

Greed for pearls and diamonds
They are hellbent for gold
Their notorious symbol
Makes every decent sailor's blood run cold
Like the mighty eagle
Diving down on the lamb
Pirates don't give mercy
When they fight and get the upper hand
Stormwitch, "Skull and Crossbones''
