Bath-Time Blackbeard

I jump into the ocean 
And climb aboard my ship.
I’m a pirate captain, Matey!
Let me give you a few tips:

1. I’ll make you walk the plank.
2. I’ll make you scrub the deck.
3. I’ll see that you do sails
    before we crash and wreck.
4. A giant octopus 
    and Barbie are our threats.
5. We only have 10 minutes
6. We’re all in with no regrets.

When the ocean’s finally drained,
And the bubbles are all gone,
I dry and wait for next time,
Which seems to be too long.
