Ballad o' Peg Leg Pete

“Aye, me maties, ‘tis a stormy sea dis day
Shiver me timbers, let’s make way for da bay”

But as Peg Leg Pete slowly turned ’is ship ‘round
A great beauty on da rocks was t' be found

“We’ll save ye, lassie,” 'e cried t' da girl
Once rescued, 'e took ‘er below fer a whirl

Crew listened as Pete’s peg on da ship’s hull beat
All steamed ‘twas da cabin, a-swirl in da heat

“Argh, men, let’s show ‘im,” grunted one jealous mate
Months asea dey’d sailed wit nary one date

So when Pete thumped ‘is way back t' da deck
'e found himself aboard a sinking wreck

“Blasted mutiny,” Pete screamed, den caught sight
O' da rum-soaked crew a-rowin’ in dim light

Aboard thar rowboat ‘twas Pete’s prized treasure chest
‘is ire was raised, as ye might 'ave guessed

Seeing Polly Parrot had left da ship too
‘Tis a lesson in dis, a sad one but true

Pirates who choose t' make love t' a beauty
Oft’ find thar mates abscond wit thar looty
