Pirate Captain
I rule my ship with an iron fist, I sail the seven seas
Well I’ve only sailed four of them but that’s good enough for me
My crew fear me for my cruelty it drives them over board
Swab the deck, walk the plank, I rule on my own accord

All the pain and misery it really floats my boat
To be the captain of the ship I get to be cut-throat
Don’t with come to me with your complaints, don’t come to me with moans
You come to me with whining into the sea you will be thrown

Cabin Boy
I’m sick and tired of always being overlooked
I’m swabbing the deck while the compliments go to the cook
But one day my dreams will come true
One day I’ll be a pirate captain too

With my head high, in the night sky, sail the ocean blue
From state to village, rape and pillage, that is what I’ll do
And I’ll be there, wind in my hair, bring injustice to the sea
Reigning terror, we’ll sail together, my pirate friends and me

As a kid, I can remember, all the pressure
my father put on me to be an architect
Sure, it was a mixture of emotions
he wanted wealth I need the ocean
So I ran away, to the nearest bay
where I became a cabin boy but I got no pay
And I had no say, just looked like hard work from here on out

Pirate Captain
Out of my way you worthless scum
you will not rest ‘til the job’s done, you will not rest until the job is done and
I___, I want more than scurvy and lies
it’s not the treasure I despise, just the sadness in their eyes

To tell you the truth, I’m not actually that bad
I put on this voice, ‘cause my life has been real sad
But if they knew they’d treat me like the dad I never had

I want to live with the people on the land
with their lovely people feet and their lovely people hands
What are these feelings tormenting my mind
Am I done with all of this ship, should I leave this life behind

Cabin Boy and ]Pirate Captain]
My pirate friends and me____, my pirate friends and me____
[What is that singing?  Why don’t you just shut up?]  No!

With my head high, in the night sky, sail the ocean blue
From state to village, rape and pillage, that is what I’ll do
And I’ll be there, wind in my hair, bring injustice to the sea
Reigning terror, we’ll sail together, my pirate friends and me

[I want to live with the people on the land
with their lovely people feet and their lovely people hands
What are these feelings tormenting my mind
Am I done with all of this ship, should I leave this life behind]

My pirate friends and me, [I will set my crew free]
My pirate friends and me, [I’ll finish this journey]
My pirate friends and me, [Hey cabin boy], yeah
[Come over here and take this wheel from me]
I’ll take this wheel from you, [just take this wheel from me]
I said I’ll take this wheel from you, and sail [me] away
