I SAIL THE SEA

By Celeste Friedman

  Oh, shiver me timbers for pieces of eight
That's why I sail the sea!

  Oh . . . I'm a mighty sailor man  (I sail the sea)
I live on the ocean, I have a great tan!  (I sail the sea)
There's so many stories of sailors been told
I'm just like the rest of 'em, lookin' for gold
I never get sea sick, I'm brave and bold
That's why I sail the sea

  I sail the sea, I sail the sea
I know that it's a pirate's life for me
Oh, I sail the sea, I sail the sea
Oh, shiver me timbers for pieces of eight
That why I sail the sea!

  Oh . . . Captain Morgan, he rings his bell (I sail the sea)
A dangerous pirate, 'cause he really smells (I sail the sea)
No longer do we sail for the Queen
But, for diamonds and glory, the pirates dream
Sail all ye men to the Fiddler's Green
That's why I sail the sea!

  Oh . . . In my ear I wear a gold ring
I have a parrot, I teach him to sing
The songs of the rovers, The Barbary Coast
"Yo Ho Ho", we sing that the most
"Blow Ye Winds", "The Cuckoo's Nest",
"Ar Fa La La Low", I love that the best
Show me the way to the treasure chest
That's why I sail the sea!

  In 1780 it was a good year
For I and me mateys, the real buccaneers
Did capture the Dolphin, a Spanish prize
At Portobello, but barely survived
They say we're dead, but we're still alive
That's why I sail the sea!
