The Pirate of the Sea

Have you heard the tale of the Pirate of the Sea

It really does frighten me

With bones full of marrow

His name just happens to be Sparrow


With one quick swoop he broke the bank

And made off with dozens of rakes!

He swung from a rope up way high

All without telling a lie


He shouted once he shouted twice

"You'll never catch me cause I have lice!"

Then he was hit by a pigeon or two and falling off the rope he had a double take

Down he fell until he hit the calm ocean wake


Where there he lies

Guarding some pies!

And that's the tale of the Pirate of the Sea

That still does make me scream
