lyrics

Buccaneer
(Parody of “Chandelier” by Sia)
Hearty sirs don't get hurt
Can't feel anything, when will ye learn?
We batten down, batten down

I'm the one for a bar time brawl,
Cannon's blowin' up, swabbin' up the hall,
Ye scurvy dog, scurvy dog,

1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, YAR!
1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, YAR!
1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, YAR!

Throw 'em back 'til I lose count

I am the king, I'm a buccaneer, a buccaneer!
I'm gonna live like I have doubloons in my fist
Doubloons in my fist (That means money)
I'm a tough guy when I plunder and smite (he'll plunder you),
a black patch upon me eye (Patches)
I'm gonna drink from me goblet of beer,
from me goblet of beer! (Alcoholics)

But I'm holding onto me knife, sailing seas and wide open skies,
Keep me mug full until morning light,
keelhaul lubbers and murder outright (He'll murder you)
Heave Ho, hearties hold onto your knife,
Won’t go down ‘til we get the prize
Keep my mug full until morning light,
keep my enemies all filled with fright, all filled with fright

Sun is up, hit the crow's nest
Gotta get up now, all hands on deck (All hands on deck!)
Anchors aweigh, anchors aweigh

Chorus

But I'm holding onto me knife, sailing seas and wide open skies,
Keep me mug full until morning light,
keelhaul lubbers and murder outright (Murder, yeah!)
Heave Ho, hearties hold onto your knife, won’t go down
'til we get the prize ('til we get the prize)
Keep my mug full until morning light,
keep my enemies all filled with fright
All filled with fright
(Repeat)

Grab ye lubbers, and fill them with fright! (I think they get it)
Yar har, me hearties, keep your enemies all filled with fright
(No, seriously)
Oh, all my enemies, filled with fright!
(They heard you the first time) YAR!
I need a throat lozenge (Menthol)
Sea spray is hard on the throat.
