We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot.

We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot.

We went on a "pirate cruise" in April with DGS out of Georgetown, SC. It was VERY cute.  A beautiful ship--young crew all dressed up talkin' like pirates (and keeping it very clean for the younger ones). Told stories to the kids, "fired" over a (beautiful) passing sailboat.  The whole nine yards.

The first pirate song that came in my mind was indeed in English: "I am the Pirate King/ (You are, you are the Pirate King!)/ And it is, it is a wonderful thing/ to be a Pirate King!"

Only thing that came to mind is from the Pirates of the Carribean ride in Disneyland. I was in middle school when the ride opened and I just have ridden it 15 times that first day.


Yo ho, yo ho a pirate's life for me!


I can't remember any of the rest of it. I used to love to eat at the Blue Bayou restaurant in the middle there. Their food was really quite good!

Memory. I have a 12-year-old boy, don't forget and we have Disneyland annual passports.


You wouldn't like the lyrics to that PESKY "It's a Small World, After All," by any chance, would you? I'd love to get rid of them. ;-)

What I really want to know are all of the words to "In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room". That song gets into my brain and I just sing that part over and over and over. I think if I knew all of the words I could work it out of my brain faster. It is really good for annoying your kids though.

In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room
In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room
All the birds sing words
And the flowers croon
At the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room

Okay, but you're gonna be sorry you asked. I just googled on "Tiki Room Lyrics" and here they are. (Oh, and thank YOU for the earworm; I'm going to Disneyland today and will studiously AVOID the TR.)


Ole! Ole! It's Showtime!

Chorus:
In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room
In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room
All the birds sing words and the flowers croon
In the Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Tiki Room
Welcome to our tropical hideaway, you lucky people you!
If we weren't in the show starting right away,
We'd be in the audience too
All together!

Chorus
The boys in the back are kamikaze
Because of their claws?
No, because they're macaws
And our fine feathered friend is a jolly toucan
And two can sound better than one toucan can
The bird of paradise is an elegant bird
It likes to be seen and it loves to be heard
Most little birdies will fly away
But the Tiki Room birds are here every day
Our show is delightful we hope you'll agree
We hope that it fills you with pleasure and glee
Because if we don't make you feel like that
We're gonna wind up on the lady's hat

Chorus
Our magnificent production is yet to come
So strum the guitar and beat the drum
We've been hit and we know you adore us
So come on and join us in another chorus

Thanks! That is great, and I will study the words so I can annoy my children even more (hahaha). Have lots of fun in Disneyland. I really think you need to go to the Tiki Room though, even if my kids think, "that's so lame".

(post #48575, reply #15 of 39)

Oh, good heavens, I AM sorry. That's a nasty one, too. DON'T think about "Small World Holiday," which blends THE song with . . . ummm . . . I think it's "Jingle Bells."


Concentrate very intently on the pirate song.


If that doesn't work, I can only recommend "O, Canada."

I went on that one when it first opened, too. I think I was about 11. And no thanks, that one echos in my head for months after I hear it,

You guys are missing out on the best pirate song of them all, from The Arrogant Worms:


The Last Saskatchewan Pirate


Well I used to be a farmer and I made a living fine,
I had a little stretch of land along the CP line,
But times went by and though I tried the money wasn't there,
And bankers came and took my land and told me "Fair is Fair".

I looked for every kind of job the answer always "No",
"Hire you now" they'd always laugh, "We just let Twenty go!" (Haha)
The government, they promised me a measley little sum,
But I've got too much pride to end up just another bum!
Then I thought who gives a damn if all the jobs are gone,
I'm gonna be a pirate, on the river Saskatchewan!

Chorus:
And it's a Heave (HO) High (HO) Comin' down the plains,
Stealin' Wheat and Bareley and all the other grains,
And it's a Ho (HEY!) High (HEY!) Farmers bar yer doors,
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.

Well you think the local farmers would know that I'm at large,
But just the other day I found an unprotected barge,
I snuck up right behind them and they were none the wiser,
I rammed the ship and sank it and I stole the Fertilizer

A Bridge outside of Moose Jaw spans a mighty river,
Farmers cross in so much fear their stomach's are a quiver,
'Cause they know that Tractor Jack's a-hiding in the bay,
I'll jump the bridge and knock em cold and sail off with their Hay!

Chorus

Well Mountie Bob he chased me he was always at my throat,
He followed on the shorelines 'cause he didn't own a boat,
But cut-backs were a comin' and the Mountie lost his job,
So now he's sailin' with me and we call him Salty Bob!

A Swingin' Sword and Skull and Bones are pleasant company,
I never pay my Income Tax and screw the GST (SCREW IT!)
Prince Albert down to Saskatoon the Terror of the Sea,
If you wanna reach the Co-op boy you gotta get by me!

Chorus

Well pirate life's appealing but you don't just find it here,
I've heard that in Alberta there's a band of Buccaneers,
They roam the athabaska from Smith to North McKay,
And you're gonna lose your Stetson if you have to pass their way.

Well Winter is a comin' and a chill is in the breeze,
My pirate days are over once the river starts to freeze,
But I'll be back in Spring time but now I have to go,
I hear there's lots of plunderin' down in New Mexico.

And it's a Heave (HO!) Hi (HO!) Comin' down the plains,
Stealin' Wheat and Barley and all the other grains,
And it's it's a Ho (HEY!) Hi (HEY!) Farmers bar yer doors,
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.

(Repeat)

When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores
When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores
A-har!

Glad you like it--I figured some of the references (to the Co-op and the GST, for instance) would be lost on those of you south of the border. 


The "River Saskatchewan" (more correctly the North Saskatchewan River, but I guess that didn't scan) flows right by our front door.  When DS was about 3 I used to play that song in the car all the time, til one day he asked in a small, concerned voice from the back seat, "Are there REALLY pirates on the River Saskatchewan?"

That's fantastic! And one from someone we will always remember: Stan Rogers (R.I.P.)


Barrett's Privateers


 Oh the year was seventeen seventy eight
I wish I were in Sherbrooke now!
A letter of marque came from the King
To the scummiest vessel I've ever seen
God Damn them all! I was told
We'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier
The last of Barrett's privateers.


Oh Elcid Barrett cried the town,
I wish I were in Sherbrooke now!
For twenty brave men, all fishermen, who
Would make for him the Antelope's crew,
God Damn them all! I was told
We'd cruise the seas for American gold
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears
Now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier
The last of Barrett's privateers.


The Antelope sloop was a sickening sight.
She'd a list to port and her sails in rags,
And a cook in the scuppers with staggers and jags.

On the King's birthday we put to sea.
We were ninety-one days to Montego bay,
Pumping like madmen all the way.

On the ninety-sixth day we sailed again.
When a bloody great Yankee hove in sight
With our cracked four-pounders we made to fight

The Yankee lay low down with gold.
She was broad and fat and loose in stays,
But to catch her took the Antelope two whole days

Then at length we stood two cables away.
Our cracked four-pounders made an awful din,
But with one fat ball the Yank stove us in.

The Antelope shook and pitched on her side.
Barrett was smashed like a bowl of eggs,
And the maintruck carried off both me legs.

So here I lay in my twenty-third year.
It's been six years since we sailed away,
And I just made Halifax yesterday.
