I got the PIRATE BLUES not doing things that pirates do. I got the PIRATE BLUES. I can feel it through and through. I've been a lot of places; I pumped a lot of pain sailing through.
I've got the PIRATE BLUES from my hat down to my boots. I've got the PIRATE BLUES with all the things I need to do. We like doxy women; drink a lot of whisky, punch too.
Chorus: You wake up in the morning Trouble is what you brew. There's treasure for the taking and pirates on the loose. You better get yourself together before you wind up in a noose. Grab your sword; light the fuse!
We got the PIRATE BLUES and we're coming to your town. You get the PIRATE BLUES; looks like you're going down. So, grab yourself a wench and brew. All you've got to do is come around.
Chorus: You rise up in the morning and get the news. Peace is in the making, but that's not what you choose. You've got to carry out your mission or you'll end up dead. Target opposition: Don't lose your head!
You've got the PIRATE BLUES. You know what you've got to do. You've got the PIRATE BLUES if not, they will find you. Now is the time to be a pirate or you'll be seeing the blues.
