I kissed a wench and I liked it
The taste of her brasso lipstick
I kissed a wench just ta try it
I hope me cabin boy don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Wont be back on the ship tonight
I kissed a wench and I liked it
I liked it

Aaarrrrgh!
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

I once made a film about a Tench
The actors by the sea were all drenched
I played a Pirate
But I got very irate
When the oscar went to Dame Judy Dench
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

Pirates send me letters
The paper ones not de French ones
I gives em me best advice
O'er a cup o tea and a slice

The hadvise is confidenshul
I hopes ye find it helpful
But I've seen some nasty rashes
Wot ave made me bat me lashes

I wont menshun any names
Nor give anyone der blame
But the rogerin wot goes on
Is beyond help of my poshuns
Ye Crows Nest be open fer business me dearies.

Auntie BlackBearde

As frum a greene zinc dinghy, a womman’s
Head wiv bleeched 'air evvily pomaded
Emurjes slowly an drunkenly frum a old crow nest,
Wiv bald patches ravver badly 'idden;

Then thee short nek, brodde showlder-blaydes
Stickin hout; a hample bosom witch buljes;
Then thee stranjeness ov thee bearde appeares scribbilled on;
Thee oi-shadowe appeares hin slabbes:

Thee mouf be a bit red; an thee 'ole fing 'as a smell
Stranjely horrribull; ye notiss espeshally
Odd detayles ye’d 'ave t'see wiv a maggotfyin' glasse…

Thee cutlass bares too hengraved werdes: CLARA VENUS;
—An that hole bodie moves an hex tens hits brodde rump
Hideeyusly beyootiful wiv a ... tattoo.

I lived on a bench
with a pirate wench
in the years that passed slowly by
And when she would cry
There'd be a tear in my eye
and then i'd get wasted again.

The Stinky Pirate Ship

A pirate captain sailed the seas
His flag was black as ink.
He never pumped his bilges out
And god his ship did stink!

The other pirates sailed away
Whenever he came near.
He hailed them good and loudly,
They pretended not to hear.

For many years he sailed around
Alone and all bereft.
His crew they all did mutiny
‘Til only rats were left.

Alas he cried! Alas alack!
Come back and do your duty!
“No way!” they cried, “ you stink
and there is very little booty!”

“A pirate crew must always find
Another ship to fight.
With you they smell us coming
And are off and out of sight.”

Ok I’ll pump the bilges
I swear it will be done!
We’ll use a load of Air-fresh
And dettol by the ton.

So now they are a menace
To all the ships they meet.
And a sweeter smelling pirate ship
You’d never hope to greet.
