In days of old, when ships were bold Just like the men who sailed them And if they showed us disrespect We'd tie them up and flail them Often men of low degree And often men of steel Who'd make you walk the plank alone Or haul you 'round the keel Hoist the Jolly Roger! Hoist the Jolly Roger! Hoist the Jolly Roger! It's your money that we want And your money we shall have! Of all the pirates on the seas The worst of them was Blackbeard So damnable a fiend from hell He was the one they most feared Any man who sailed with him Was taking quite a chance He'd hang them from the gallows Just to see if they could dance (ha! ha!)
