Lyrics

The pirates are coming / The pirates are coming
The pirates are coming / You better watch out

I cast my vote for the dog and the goat
Danced with fire in the Devil's coat
And ran the skull and bones up the flagpole

I partied with pigs in the poison mud
Washed my linen in mother’s blood
And made a killing from the ever-rising death toll

The Black Ship sails at the turn of the tide
Faith and Mercy are chained inside
Auction block awaiting ‘cross the water

Buzzards soar above the smoke
Bodies in the ditch begin to bloat
And the captain laughs at all the slaughter

The pirates are coming / The pirates are coming
The pirates are coming / Run for your life

I cast my vote for the dog and the goat
Danced with fire in the Devil's coat
And ran the skull and bones up the flagpole

I partied with pigs in the poison mud
Washed my linen in mother’s blood
And made a killing from the ever-rising death toll

The store’s been whored to the rotten fishmonger
The goods we’ve been sold ain’t good no longer
The Bill of Wrongs is large and gettin’ larger

I’ll show ya your chains if you show me mine
There’s no place to hide when ev’ryone’s lyin’
And the watchman hums “The Song of Jolly Roger”

The pirates are coming / You better watch out
The pirates are coming / Run for your life
The pirates are coming / The pirates are here
