"Keelhauled" as written by and Christopher Bowes....
My friends I stand before you
To tell a truth most dire
They lust a traitor in our midst
Who haven't vote the captain's ire

He don't deserve no mercy
We ought to shoot him with a gun
But I am not an evil man
So first let's have a little fun

We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
And throw it overboard
Drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho

I will not say what he has done
His sins are far to grave to tell
It's not my place to judge a man
But boy he will burn in hell

The sharks will dine up on his flesh
And davie jones will have his soul
Take his money and his hat
He won't need them where he's gonna go

And first lets tie him to a rope
And throw him overboard
Drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho

We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
And throw him overboard
Drag him underneath the ship
A terrifying deadly trip

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho

Keelhaul, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below
Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and a yo-ho-ho

    General Commentso inaccurate.

    My friends I stand before you
    To tell a truth most dire,
    There lies a traitor in our midst
    Who has invoked the captain's ire

    He don't deserve no mercy
    We ought to shoot him with a gun,
    But I am not an evil man
    So first lets have a little fun

    We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
    And throw him overboard
    Drag him underneath the ship
    A terrifying deadly trip

    Keelhauled, that filthy lad, and we'll send him down to the depths below
    Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

    Keelhauled, that filthy lad, and we'll send him down to the depths below
    Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

    I will not say what he has done
    His sins are far to grave to tell
    It's not my place to judge a man
    But for them he will burn in hell

    The sharks will dine up on his flesh
    And Davie Jones will have his soul
    Take his money and his hat
    He won't need them where he's gonna go

    We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
    And throw him overboard
    Drag him underneath the ship
    A terrifying deadly trip

    Keelhauled, that filthy lad, and we'll send him down to the depths below
    Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

    Keelhauled, that filthy lad, and we'll send him down to the depths below
    Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

    We'll tie that scoundrel to a rope
    And throw him overboard
    Drag him underneath the ship
    A terrifying deadly trip

    Keelhauled, that filthy lad, and we'll send him down to the depths below
    Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

    Keelhauled, that filthy lad, and we'll send him down to the depths below
    Make that bastard walk the plank with a bottle of rum and the Yo-Ho-Ho

    General Commentmlefevre323 you are more accurate then the originate but still not fully correct
    You're right about everything accept the course:
    It's not: 'Keelhauked filthy lad, and we'll send him down to the depths below'
    It is: 'Keelhauled, that filthy landlubber, send him down to the depths below'
    Landlubber is a person unfamiliar with the sea or sailing. check dictonairy websties if you're still not sure.
