Arrrr, arrrr, arrrr…

We are the pirates, who don't do anything
We just stay at home, and lie around
And if you ask us to do anything
We'll just tell you, we don't do anything

Well, I've never been to Greenland
and I've never been to Denver,
and I've never buried treasure
in St. Louis or St. Paul,
and I've never been to Moscow,
and I've never been to Tampa,
and I've never been to Boston in the fall.


And I never hoist the mainstay
and I never swab the poop deck
and I never veer to starboard
'cuz I never sail at all,
and I've never walked the gang plank
and I've never owned a parrot
and I've never been to Boston in the fall.


[Country hick-style voice]
Well I've never plucked a rooster and I'm not too got at ping pong
and I've never thrown my mashed pa-taters up against the wall,
and I've never kissed a chipmunk
and I've never gotten head lice
and I've never been to Boston in the fall.

[Pirate voice]
Pirate Captain Vluh 2002
Who be this band Relient K?
And why be they so full of controversy?

We don't know what he did, but we're down with Captain Kidd
We don't wake up late for lunch, but we all eat Captian Crunch
We don't smoke, we don't chew, but we watch Captain Kangaroo

And I've never licked a spark plug,
and I've never sniffed a stink bug,
and I've never painted daisies on a big red rubber ball,
and I've never bathed in yogurt
and I don't look good in leggings…
and I've never been to Boston in the fall!

Ladies and Gentlemen, let's give 'em a big hand!

(chorus) x2

    General CommentYa, they just came with a sampler CD with 2 songs on it: one where relient K covers "the pirates who dont do anything", and the other is really really funny. Larry boy covering breakdown. i highly recommend this CD, its hilarious.

    General Commentawesome song, just some corrections

    Pirate Captain Vluh 2002 = Pirate Captains Log, 2002

    so full of controversy? = so full of contradictions?

    We don't wake up late for lunch = We don't wake up before lunch
