Talk Like a Pirate Day

 In Pirates

In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day (YARGH!) Ye should be honoured to bear witness to the shanty whose lyrics I’m about to display before yer eyes. It’s a good ol’ favorite, “Hoist the Colours” (by Hans Zimmer) from the theatrical adventure Pirates O’ The Carribean 3: At World’s End.

The king and his men,
Stole the Queen from her bed,
And bound her in her Bones,
The seas be ours,
And by the powers,
Where we will, we’ll roam.

Yo Ho, haul together,
Hoist the colours high,
Heave Ho, Theives and Beggars,
Never Shall We Die!

Some men have died,
And some are alive,
And others sail on the sea,
With the keys to the cage…
And the Devil to pay,
We lay to Fiddler’s Green!

The Bell has been raised,
From it’s watery grave…
Do you hear it’s sepulchral tone?
We are a call to all,
Pay heed the squall,
And turn your sail toward home!

Yo Ho haul, together,
Hoist the colours high
Heave Ho, Theives and Beggars,
Never Shall We Die!
