Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum.
5 bonny scarves, 1 bare tum.
You are the scurviest, head to your toes.
2 dirty feet and a button nose.
Avast me hearty, a sailin' you go.
Wave to your mama, she loves you so.
Where are you off to? Nobody knows.
But come back to mama before the days close.
Hoist the colors, light your torch!
1 mighty yell, you take over the porch.
You are the captain, brother's your mate.
When mom calls for lunch you don't want to be late.
Sisters the maid who cries out in dispair
When you threaten to tie-up her teddy bear.
You pillage the toy-box, playing your part.
You are surely a pirate, you stole mama's heart!
