Free to be ugly and free to be loud,
We're orphans and bastards, we're battered and proud,
Her timbers are shivers, and her sailcloth's a scream,
The Black Ship Batrachian sails in my dreams.

On the Black Ship Batrachian we're backwards crustaceans, exploding out of our shells,
Parents don't hit you and teachers don't shit you, where nobody tattles or tells, (YO-HO! YO-HO!)
We're all throwaways, stowaways, runaways, go-aways, the kids unwanted on shore,
We sail past our eyelids, parading as pirates, when we just can't take anymore. (YO-HO! YO-HO!)

On the Black Ship Batrachian we lurk under the beds while the monsters above live in fear,
It's ice cream for dinner and no one's a sinner, no one gets dragged by the ear, (YO-HO! YO-HO!)
Hang the cowboys and astronauts we'll never be, put your pride on the plank, plunge it into the sea.
You can love yourself, rub yourself, tug yourself, set yourself free, you are who you were meant to be! (YO-HO! YO-HO!)

All roads lead to roaming as far as we know, so we're sailing off into the black,
The prince and the princess are happy as toads, and the Black Ship Batrachian never looks back,

Free to be ugly and free to be loud,
We're orphans and bastards, we're battered and proud,
Her timbers are shivers, and her sailcloth's a scream,
The Black Ship Batrachian sails in my dreams.
