Is everyone ready for my song? Here goes.
Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
Drink and the devil be done for the rest
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum. The mate was fixed by the bos’n’s pike
The bos’n’ brained with a marlin spike and
Cookey’s throat was marked belike It
Had been gripped by fingers ten and
There they lay all good dead men like
Break o’ day in a boozing ken__
Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum
OK Xena, your turn. I’ve even got a map here for us to hunt for treasure later.
Xena: What is happening? Why is this weird bird here and why am I wearing a hat. Is this a joke?
Pirate Pete: No, matey, t’is no joke. I am Pirate Pete, and this is Talk Like a Pirate Day. Talk like a Pirate or walk the plank.
Great first try, me fine lassie. Try again.
That be it, sweet Xena girl. All together now:
Yo ho ho an’ a bottle a’ rum!Presented to you by Lucy the Pirate Dog, Xena the Pirate Warrior Princess and Pirate Pete
