Original Song – “Pirat’s, Buccan’ers, Privat’ers, Scum!” (A Pirate Drinking Song)

I wrote these pirate songs as part of my children’s story:

Sam the Tugboat and the Legend of Shipwreck Island

I’m re-posting Pirat’s, Buccan’ers, Privat’ers, Scum! here in order to keep it with the collection of other songs I’ve written in the past.  It’s a pirate drinking song and can be sung in any key – or off key for that matter! This song is dedicated to my time as a member of the 428th Tactical Fighter Training Squadron, the “Buccaneers” at Cannon AFB, NM, in the summer of 1991 – where I learned to fly the F-111G as a WSO or “Weapon Systems Officer” prior to returning to RAF Upper Heyford, U.K. to fly the F-111E.  Enjoy the song!

Ode to Davy Jones

“Arrghh!  Davy Jones’ Lock’r, at th’ bot’om of th’ sea…

Bet’er off ‘m goin’ th’re, th’n me…

Myst’ries abound ‘n th’ depths of th’ sea…

Take ‘m far, far away ‘nd let ‘m b’…

For dark are th’ ghosts at th’ bot’om of th’ sea…

In Davy Jones’ Lock’r, better ‘m th’n me!  Arrghh!”
