There's a pirate, known to fame 
Black Macocco was the Pirate's name 
In his day, the tops was he 
Round the Caribbean or Caribbean Sea
When he sites a clipper ship 
Mack would board her and begin to clip 
First he'd grab, the ladies fair 
Especially those with jewels
Those with jewels to spare! 
Especially those with jewels
Those with jewels to spare 
Especially those with jewels 
Especially those with jewels
Those with jewels to spare! 
With his ladies and his loot 
Next Macocco from the ship would scoot 
Then he'd set the ship afire...what a pretty funeral 
Funeral pyre! 
Mack the Black, what a pretty funeral 
Mack the Black, marvelous funeral pyre! 
Though the years this black Macocco 
Lead his pirate reign 
His claim to fame was as black as his name 
All around the Spanish Maine 
When he'd a make his daily rounds 
Gals would trail him like a pack of hounds 
Ev'ry night he'd have a date Ladies go to pieces 
Over pieces of eight.
Hey! 
Sleep my baby, baby sleep 
Time for babe to be in slumber deep 
If you wake or cry or laugh 
Mack the Black will whack ya 
And he'll whack ya in half! 
Mack the black will really whack 
Mack the black will whack ya! 
Mack the black would really have to 
Whack ya in half! 
Mack the Black will really whack ya, 
Mack the Black will whack ya! 
Mack the black will whack ya 
And he'll whack ya! 
Aaaaaah! Mack was ruthless
Mack was feared 
Perhaps it's better that he disappeared 
Yet I know, that he was bad 
I could fall in love with,
Fall in love with the lad! 
Evening star, if you see Mack 
Stop his wanderings and guide him back 
I'll be waiting, patiently 
By the Caribbean or Caribbean Sea.
Is that the Caribbean Sea? 
And if I met this famous pirate 
Met him face to face 
You think I'd run and hide my head 
And scream around the place 
Why no I'd just sashay around 
Displaying all my charms 
And soon I'd have him walk the plank 
Right into my arms 
That's what I think of Mack the Black Macocco!
