"Jolly Roger" as written by and Adam Ant Marco Pirroni....
In days of old, when ships were bold
Just like the men who sailed them
And if they showed us disrespect
We'd tie them up and flail them
Often men of low degree
And often men of steel
Who'd make you walk the plank alone
Or haul you 'round the keel
Hoist the Jolly Roger!
Hoist the Jolly Roger!
Hoist the Jolly Roger!
It's your money that we want
And your money we shall have!
Of all the pirates on the seas
The worst of them was Blackbeard
So damnable a fiend from hell
He was the one they most feared
Any man who sailed with him
Was taking quite a chance
He'd hang them from the gallows
Just to see if they could dance (ha! ha!)

    General CommentThe pirate side of Adam and The Ants. For those who don't know Adam and the band would dress up in a combination of Pirate/Native American and Dandy Highwayman attire. They somehow made it all work together.
