Pirates

My brother and I are a fearsome pair;
We do many things no one else would dare.
We spit on the floor, and we curse, and we glare;
And if you want to know the reason why:

It’s coz we’re pirates, yes, we’re pirates!
We’re armed to our teeth, which are yellow and black.
Yes, we’re pirates, yes, we’re pirates!
We take what we want, and we don’t give it back!

Once a young rogue came into our lair;
He wanted our treasure; Mom, said:  “Boys, please share!”
We grabbed him by the arms and we tied him to a chair;
And when Mommy got upset we both let fly:

“Hey, we’re pirates, yes, we’re pirates!
If you steal from us you’ll end up on the rack.
Yes, we’re pirates, yes, we’re pirates!
We take what we want and we don’t give it back!”

Now, sometimes even pirates have to wear clean shirts;
And mind their manners when they go to school.
And we’d better eat our veggies if we want dessert;
But forgive us if we slobber and drool!

At night when the lights go out on the ship;
We climb out of our bunks, make sure we don’t trip.
Our hands are filled with cookies when we hear the light switch flip;
There’s Mommy in her nightgown, asking: “Why!?”

“It’s coz we’re pirates, yes we’re pirates!
We’re armed to our teeth which are yellow and black.
Yes, we’re pirates, yes, we’re pirates!
We take what we want and we don’t give it back!”
