The lyrics to "Pirate School"
Where we all learn all the Pirate Rules
Learn the pirate names
Like Captain & Boatswain
and all of the jobs that us pirates do
Like raising up the mast
Set off a cannon blast
or how to guide the ship on a course that’s true
Detention's always done in the brig
If you want extra credit, learn a pirate jig
The highest grade we get is the “Sea”
and when we graduate we start out as swabbies
The Pirate School…
Pack a powder keg
Whittle a wooden leg
learn how to scale a castle’s stoney walls
Teach parrots how to speak
Fix a deck that leaks
and don’t get caught in the poop deck halls
Detention’s in the brig for a prank
Getting expelled means you’re walking the plank
If you're cheat on a test you’ll be marked as a spy
and the only thing you say to your teacher is “aye”
Blackbeard is our favorite teach
Dampier teaches science and speech
And after school we're hanging out at Davy Jones' locker
Black Bart teaches 'bout the stars
Anne Bonny gives a couple scars
On our arms and on our heart cause she's a real sweetalker
Henry Every leads a field trip
Out to the site of some sunken ships
Our math test is dividing the loot
But don't get caught with some hidden in your boot
