Water, Water every where
And all the boards did creak
Water, Water everywhere
Me washing Machine has leaked
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

A dashing lad was Errol
He used to be my chum
But we had to nail him to thee deck
To keep him off thee rum

Oi love that Pieces. That were a loverly piece o' poetree. :haha:

EDIT: In thee stoile o' Pieces, oi 'ave this little shanty fer yee...

Where can ye foind pleasure
Search thee world fer treasure

On thee land or on thee sea
Where can ye learn ter floiy
Eat Fish 'Ead Stoo an' skin dive
Study oceanographee
Sign up fer thee big band
Or sit in thee grandstand
When yer team and others meet

In thee navee
Yes, ye can sail thee seven seas
In thee navee
Yes, ye can put yer mind at ease
In thee navee
Come on now, poirates, make a stand
In thee navee, in thee navee
Can't you see we need an 'ook
In thee navee
Come on, protect thee pastaland
In thee navee
Come on and join your fellow poirate
In thee navee
Come on poirates, and make a stand
In thee nave, in thee nave, in thee navee (in thee naveeeee)

They want ye, they want ye
They want ye as a cabin boi

If ye like adventure
Don't ye wait to enter
The poirate ship fast
Don't ye hesitate
There be no need ter wait
They're signin' up new poirates fast
Maybe ye be too young
Ter join up today
Bout don't you worry 'bout a thing
Fer oi'm sure there will be
Always a good navy
Pillagin' thee land an' sea

In thee navee
Yes, ye can sail thee seven seas
In thee navee
Yes, ye can put yer mind at ease
In thee navee
Come on now, poirates, make a stand
In thee navee, in thee navee
Can't you see we need an 'ook
In thee navee
Come on, protect thee pastaland
In thee navee
Come on and join your fellow poirate
In thee navee
Come on poirates, and make a stand
In thee nave, in thee nave, in thee navee (in thee naveeeee)

They want ye, they want ye
They want ye as a cabin boi

Who me?

They want ye, they want ye
They want ye as a cabin boi

But, but but I'm afraid o' water.
Hey, hey look
Man, oi get seasick even watchin' it on Poirate TV!

They want ye, they want ye in the navee

Oh me goodness.
What am oi gonna do in a submareen?

They want ye, they want ye in the navee

A Non-Shakespearian sort of sonnet.

The pyrit ship was tossed upon the main;
A mighty wave broke o'er the Captain's head -
And this the Bosun thought exceeding strange,
For at the time the Captain was in bed.
"My Capting!" cried the Bosun, full of woe,
"Be ye still in there?" When he brought a lamp
The Captain was alive and hearty, though
His gyint hat were looking rather damp.

"The mizzen-stays be gone," a seaman roared,
"The futtock shrouds be buggered, and the worst
Is that Big Brenda's fallen overboard."
"Damn!" said the Captain, "this ship be accurst!
A pyrit crew's no use without a whore!
Black Bart, get in that barrel 'fore I burst."

It be due ter the loverly Pieces that we 'ave these shanties ter sing of a noight with our crews. 'Ere be another one fer ye all ter henjoy:-

Down at the English cove one evenin' I were there
When I 'eard a poirate shoutin' underneath thee middenmast

I be 'avin' a loverly bunch o' doubloons
There they be all layin' in a poile
Big ones, small ones, some as big as yer 'ead
Give 'em a twist a flick o' thee wrist
That be what thee poirate said
I be 'avin' a loverly bunch o' doubloons
Every one ye pillage will make ye rich
There stands me wench, the idol o' me loife
Singing roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog
Roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog
Roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog
Roll spaghetti a meatball, roll spaghetti a meatball
Singin' roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog
I be 'avin' a loverly bunch o' doubloons (they’re lovely)
There they be all layin' in a poile (one, two, three, er twelvety)
Big ones, small ones, some as big as yer 'ead (an' bigger)
Give 'em a twist a flick o' thee wrist
That be what thee poirate said
I be 'avin' a loverly bunch o' doubloons
Every one ye pillage will make ye rich
There stands me wench, the idol o' me loife
Singin' roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog (all together now)
Roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog (harmony)
Roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog
Roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog
Singin' roll spaghetti a meatball a point o' grog

When I was first a Pirate
Me pappy said ta me
Remember to be careful
When first ye put to sea

A pirate's life is gay
There's not a lot of dooty
But share and share aloik
When ye finds thee booty

So bearing this in mind
I took aboard Big Brenda
I saved her from the knocking shop
Her dad was goin ta send her

If ever we be lucky
And find a heap of treasure
I make sure every man
Is given his good measure

The captain gets an extra bag
And if there's any gripes
I send em to Big Brenda
They never last thee night

There was something else me pappy said
But I seem to have forgotten
Beware of something, something
Something, something bottom.
