How inconvenient it would be,
To be Captain Hook, sailing on the high seas.
You could never clap your hands,
You could never slap your knees,
You could never scratch your back.
I would be rather down, if I were he.
Yes indeed
How inconvenient it would be,
To be Captain Hook, sailing on the high seas.
But luckily for me, I’m not he, I’m me.
