Your Pirate Guide

entry picture

Ahoy, me name be Mingo

And I shall be yer guide

Though treasure be me mistress

Piracy’s me bride

I be mighty gruntled

To see that ye be here

I’ll fill yer head with stories

And I’ll fill yer heart with fear

That’s right, me name be Mingo

And I shall haunt yer dreams

I’m a stormy, ragin’ ocean

Pierced with desperate deathly screams

I lurk amongst t...

The Blood Of A Scurvy Scum

entry picture

Fe! Fi! Fo! Fum!

I smell the blood of a scurvy scum

Be he dead or be he alive

We be the pirates of St. Ives

As buccaneers it is our pleasure

To plunder, pillage, and pinch yer treasure

But pickings at sea are slim, we've learned

So once again we has returned

Fe! Fi! Fo! Fum!

I smell the blood of a scurvy scum

Be he dead or be he alive

Pirates piracy

Gentlemen Of Fortune

entry picture

I have sailed the seven seas and survived to tell the tale

I have felt the ocean breeze as it whistles through the sail

We have searched for buried treasure, these buccaneers and me

Yet we do not fear the gibbet, for dooty is dooty...

 

In the quayside tavern waiting to depart

Men of blackened teeth and blackened heart

Gentlemen of Fortune are we

Tellin' tales of...

We Are The Backhair Pirates

entry picture

We are the Backhair Pirates

We're dangerous and great

We're so brave that we eat food

That's past it's sell by date

We're handsome and good lookin'

With perfect chiselled features

Our beards are infested

With itchy slimy creatures

We are the Backhair Pirates

This be the Backhair Lair

We're scurvy rotten rascals

So enter if ye dare!

The Meaning Of True Love

entry picture

One ordinary morning

Began a wondrous tale

I was at the Backhair Lair

And siftin’ through me mail

“A card” I thought “How boring!

At least it’s not a bill

I’ll have a look afore it goes

Up on ye window sill”

The envelope was floral pink

The card bright shiny red

Inside - rough shaky handwriting

And this is what it said:-

 

“Me dearest darlin’...

I Still Gets Excited By Snow

entry picture

I still gets excited by snow

(Immature for a pirate, I know)

When I climbs out on deck

There's snow up to me neck

As me shipmates all cower below.

 

I cannot conceal me delight

When I wakes to a flurry of white

So piratin's banned

Let's get them cannons manned

And have the world's best snowball fight.

 

Lesser pirates do not think this way

When I scream "Let's go out and play!"

They ...

Ready To Sail

entry picture

Ready to sail

Heavin' away

Succubi wail

Mizzen masts sway

Open yer mind

Bare me yer soul

Together we'll find

The treasure I stole

Ready to sail

Wi' ghosts of the dead

Scurrilous tales

Adventures ahead

We'll visit places

Both magic and strange

We shall meet faces

Unknown and deranged

What say ye mate?

Do we have an accord?

We're ready to sail

So jump ye aboard!
