A pirate song for me wenches

I wrote a new song today, this one with a pirate theme. Check it out:

Guarding Me Booty

Gentleman Jim came to see me last night.

He wanted to raid me booty.

He claimed me riches were renowned,

He was captured by me beauty.

But his sack was too light,

and his dirk was too short,

and he had only pieces of three.

So I sent him away

with me boot on his bum.

That pirate’s not for me.

(chorus) Yo, ho! Yo, who?

Keep a civil tongue in yer head.

Or ye’ll never see me treasures again

Nor ever warm me bed.

Salty Sam came to see me last night.

He wanted to plunder me chest.

He praised the treasures loud and long,

Secured inside me dress.

But he fumbled the lock,

and his key didn’t fit,

then he called me Bess?

So I sent him away

with a lump on his head.

That pirate failed the test.

(chorus) Yo, ho! Yo, who?

Keep a civil tongue in yer head.

Or ye’ll never see me treasures again

Nor ever warm me bed.

Randy Dan came to see me last night.

He wanted to board me ship.

He’d never sailed on a sloop so sleek,

Nor had an around-the-world trip.

But he went overboard,

and his hook scratched me deck,

and me sheets he damn near ripped.

So I sent him away

with a smack and a curse.

That pirate should be whipped!

(chorus) Yo, ho! Yo, who?

Keep a civil tongue in yer head.

Or ye’ll never see me treasures again

Nor ever warm me bed.

Captain Jack came to see me last night.

He brought me chocolates and wine,

He dressed me in the finest silk,

Undressed me in good time.

Laid his anchor so deep,

‘Til with joy I did weep,

And left me feeling fine.

Yes, me booty I shared,

Again and again.

And traded his treasure for mine.

(chorus) Oh, oh, oh, oooo!

With me feet up over his head.

He can tally me treasures again and again

And ever warm me bed.
