Young Jim, as a lad
He looked for adventure
Calamity, danger, whatever was free
So when he turned ten, he packed his belongings
and he left home to find his destiny
Jim just a boy, who's
Head full of legends
Of dungeons and dragons
And pirates and stuff
So that summer he snuck on a schooner
To harpoon tuna
And get real buff
The Captain he said
There's danger ahead
We need some brave men
To sail and then
We'll find us those pirates
Stop them with violence,
To make the ocean safe
Once again."

Cleaning up the oceans
Captain Hampton and his crew
Trouble in the seven seas
He'll know what to do
Captain, he hates rubbish
To him pirates are just soot
Scallywags and scurvy dogs
Are crushed under his foot.
Captain Hampton, Captain Hampton
Ahoy, Ahoy
Pillaging the Pillagers
Triumphantly he'll sail away

Now, seven weeks into the trip
And Jim was sick to death
Of being sick
Some kind of action he wanted
As he searched the seas
For everyday was the same old... stuff
The night he felt like jumping ship
But then he heard a crash
Hit the starboard side of the ship
And bumped him out of his bunk
Onto his bottom
Our heroes drew their swords
As the midgets swarmed aboard
The pirates surprise attack
The tiny buccaneers
Caught us by surprise
As we tried to battle back.


La la la la la la la, la la la la la la.
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la.
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la.
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la.

Captain Hampton, Captain Hampton
Ahoy Ahoy
Pillaging the Pillagers
Triumphantly he ran away!

    General CommentGreat song. If you really listen to any Aquabats song, there's more to them than just silly lyrics! For one thing, they're good musicians, but also, the lyrics have a lot of meaning, and people that make fun of them for being stupid are just shallow.

    General CommentI love the aquabats to death. To hell with anyone who doesn't. But I must say... this is the one song by them besides the radiation song that I don't like.

    General CommentI love the aquabats as much as the next raving fan, but I've got to side with those assholes who say that they're lyrically shallow. They're silly, and I think any profound meaning you find comes from reading too deep into it.

    General CommentI'm going to have to side with monkeyman, though. Although foremost, they are silly, fun songs. Sometimes, however, it's fun to try to find (or, frankly, make up) those deeper meanings. Maybe this song is about a young boy, who's asleep and dreaming, about sailing the high sees with Captian Hampton, fighting those evil midget pirates for the good of humanity... Mmm?

    General Commentum...yeah...I agree with the shallow kids who say that they're silly. there aren't any deeper meanings in their songs...they're just good clean fun...

    La la la la la la la, la la la la la la.
    La la la la la la la, la la la la la la.
    La la la la la la la, la la la la la la.
    La la la la la la la, la la la la la la."

    there ya go.
