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!
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.
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
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
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.
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
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''
"We fly no Colours out here, but praise the Lack of 'em. So let the Black Flag signal nothing but your Alliegiance to Man's natural freedoms."
Yo ho, all hands
Hoist the colours high
Heave ho, thieves and beggars
Never shall we die
