"Have a Care" as written by and Chris De Burgh....
With the voices getting nearer I knew that I had to hide
I got up behind a coffin then I saw who was inside
By the skin and bones of black beard I lay there in the dark
T'was then I heard a whisper above the beating of my heart

"have a care have a care
T'was evilly come by and no good will you find there
Have a care have a care
T'was evilly stolen only pain and sorrow there, have a care!"

So t'was from the world of smugglers that I hid myself that night
And when they left I opened up the coffin for a look inside
But instead of black beard's diamonds in the locket at his heart
Only verses from the bible and a voice came from the dark

"have a care have a care
T'was evilly come by and no good will you find there
Have a care have a care
T'was evilly stolen only pain and sorrow there, have a care!"

"what shall we do with the boy who's hiding
What shall we do with the boy who's hiding
What shall we do with the boy who's hiding early in the morning?"

"lock him in the vault so he can't get out boys
Lock him in the vault so he can't get out boys
Lock him in the vault so he can't get out boys early in the morning!"
