We Are Pirates!

Verse 1
We are pirates on the seas,
Raiding any ship with ease,
Aye aye captain if you please,
So weigh the anchor mateys!

With a yo ho ho! Yo ho ho!
Yo ho ho! Yo ho ho!
With a yo ho ho! Yo ho ho!
We are pirates yo ho ho!

Verse 2
We are pirates yes it’s true,
On this ship a motley crew,
Search for gold that’s what we do,
So raise the Jolly Roger!


Verse 3
We are pirates we heave ho!
With our compass off we go,
Shake our cutlass to and fro,
We’ll make you walk the plank! Arr!


Verse 4
We are pirates be impressed!
Shiver me timbers we’re the best,
Give us your jewels and don’t protest!
We’ll sing an old sea shanty!


Verse 5
We are pirates be afraid!
Dig for treasure with a spade,
Drinking rum when we get paid,
We’ll shout, “Ahoy me Hearties!”

Chorus twice
