the night was dark
the seas were rough
the port lay straight ahead
the booze ran out
the men grew tired
and this is what they said:
"captain if you cannot find a place to set her down
then you'll be sleeping right along with this vessel in the ground"

well the jolly roger pulled through
and made it to the land
we disembarked
went into town with vengence in our hand
the children cried
the woman sight
the men just turn their heads
so with a smile we chated loud and this is what we said

"ooohhoooh
raise'em in the air
we'll knock you up
and slap you down
and never seem to care
ooohooohh
another one for me
cause we're the filthy vermin
that will set you people free"

with nothing left for us to drink
the night was winding down
but still the girls kept swaggering
and still hanging around
oh! mister can you tell me where i can find a man
the only thing that you will find is the back side of my hand!

"ooohhoooh
raise'em in the air
we'll knock you up
and slap you down
and never seem to care
ooohooohh
another one for me
we're the filthy vermin
that will set you people free
we're the filthy vermin
that will set you people free
ooohhoooh
raise'em in the air
we'll knock you up
and slap you down
and never seem to care
ooohooohh
another one for me
we're the filthy vermin
that will set you people free
we're the filthy vermin
that will set you people free "

    General Commentnot a big fan of the whole pirate-core theme, but i suppose it could be worse. do people consider all-american badass to be a bit pirate-core? or is it considered more polka?

    General CommentAll-American Badass should be considered polka in my opinion. The tuba and accordion make it more polka, and they even refer to "polka" many times in the song. But enough of that, I like "Weird Beard" because it's unique. Very different from some of the boring, sing-songy anthems on the album, which make up for about half of the CD.

    General Commentweird beard is fucking awesome. its represents the basic tenents of pirate life, which would be sailing, drinking, fighting and rooting...rinse and repeats. anyone who doesnt like pirates is a fucken moron...they dont give a fuck about shit like rules, regulations and societal niceties: they live the free life and do what they please. can any of you say the same?
