lyrics

When I was a child my father told me
stories of pirates who sailed the seas
and plundered and pillaged
singing and drinking all day

When I grew up I knew it was just fantasy
in out age of computers and technology
pirates are neat
but they've been obsolete
since men could now travel in space

As years passed by I aged and I grew
I made my career on a cargo ship's crew
From planet to planet, we packed it and ran it.
Transporting cargo all day

Well one day we all were just doing our jobs
when out of no-where our engines just stopped
the life support's on,
but something was wrong
and this was heard over the P.A.

We're dirty and mean
we'll rob your ship clean
we'll take whatever we like

we constantly lie
we make children cry
we'll flatten the tires on your bike.

We'll eat all your food.
we'll act really rude
we'll make a big mess and admire it.

We chew when we talk
we'll kick your dog
we are the space pirates/

At first I was frightened and shook in my boots
The pirates invaded and started to loot.
I ran and I hid
Like a scared little kid
in a closet in the starboard wing

the pirates had captured the rest of my crew
I frantically asked myself "What do I do?"
Which mode of behavior
would make me their savior
and from my hidingplace i heard them singing

were rithless and mad
we;ll make you feel bad
we'll hurt you in front of your mates
we'll kill you for sport
we'll pull down your shorts
we are the space pirates.

we're angry and strong
we sing dirty songs
we'll take it if we desire it.
We'll laugh really smugly
we'll call your mom ugly
we are the space pirates.

Immediately then I knew just what to do
to save the lives of myself and of my crew
I ran to the bar
to take what was thar
and with it burst into the helm

I held up the bottles for them all to see
I threatened to smash the if they didn't leae
They released my crew
and I gave them their brew and with that they were overwhelmed.

There is a moral to this traveller's tale
There's something to pack before you ever set sail
They may have bad tempers
but always remember
Pirates do anything for romulan ale.

We're dirty and mean
we'll rob your ship clean
we'll take whatever we like

we constantly lie
we make children cry
we'll flatten the tires on your bike.

We'll eat all your food.
we'll act really rude
we'll make a big mess and admire it.

We chew when we talk
we'll kick your dog
we'll kill you for sport
we'll pull down your shorts
We'll laugh really smugly
we'll call your mom ugly
we are the space pirates.

Yarr!
