"For I am a Pirate King!"

Pirate King:

"Oh, better far to live and die
Under the brave black flag I fly,
Than play a sanctimonious part,
With a pirate head and a pirate heart.
Away to the cheating world go you,
Where pirates all are well-to-do;
But I'll be true to the song I sing,
And live and die a Pirate King.
For I am a Pirate King!
And it is, it is a glorious thing
To be a Pirate King!
For I am a Pirate King!"

Chorus of Pirates:
"You are!
Hurrah for our Pirate King!"

Pirate King:

"And it is, it is a glorious thing
To be a Pirate King."

Chorus of Pirates:.
"It is!
Hurrah for our Pirate King!"

King & Chorus"
"Hurrah for the/our Pirate King!"

Pirate King:
"When I sally forth to seek my prey
I help myself in a royal way.
I sink a few more ships, it's true,
Than a well-bred monarch ought to do;
But many a king on a first-class throne,
If he wants to call his crown his own,
Must manage somehow to get through
More dirty work than ever I do,
For I am a Pirate King!
And it is, it is a glorious thing
To be a Pirate King!
For I am a Pirate King!

Chorus of Pirates:
"You are!
Hurrah for the Pirate King!"

Pirate King:

"And it is, it is a glorious thing
To be a Pirate King."

Chorus of Pirates:
"It is!
Hurrah for our Pirate King!"

King & Chorus:
"Hurrah for the/our Pirate King! "

HRW, start with the 5 "A"s
http://www.talklikeapirate.com/howto.html#basic [Broken]
Ahoy! - "Hello!"

Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, "Whoa! Get a load of that!" which today makes it more of a "Check it out" or "No way!" or "Get off!"

Aye! - "Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did."

Aye aye! - "I'll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over."

Arrr! - This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. "Arrr!" can mean, variously, "yes," "I agree," "I'm happy," "I'm enjoying this beer," "My team is going to win it all," "I saw that television show, it sucked!" and "That was a clever remark you or I just made." And those are just a few of the myriad possibilities of Arrr!

Pirate Haiku

Shiver me palm trees
'tis the new 'Pirate Barbie',
she's keel-haul ready!

The treasure chest lost
No map, no rum, no booty
Just parrot doody

Pirates steal poor folks'
life savings, then sail away.
Let's keelhaul Enron!

Thinkin' of a change
Perhaps I'll try my eye patch...
On the other side

Too much rum last night.
It all be a blur today.
I ate me parrot.
