I was wondering if anyone had a few pirate songs they could pass on or a URL with pirate songs. Tall ships day is coming in spring and we're goning to dress like pirates and walk around playing pirate songs. So far we have:

What do you do with a drunken Pirate
It's all for me Grog
You can't be a pirate if you got all your parts

There's this one from George Harrison (be patient throught the beginning):

Check out the Jolly Rogers: http://www.chivalry.com/jollyrogers/ for ideas. Fun stuff!

The Pirates of Penzance is bound to have a few suitable tunes... maybe look to The Pirate Movie for more recent adaptions (or as recent as 1982 can be)

One of my favorites is "Spanish Ladies" -- Not a pirate song, but a great sea shanty. You can probably just tweak the words a bit to make it more piratey. You should be able to google for the chords and lyrics.

You might also be able to get some songs from the "pirate rock" scene. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Bogg_and_Salty

the captain pugwash theme tune? (might be a bit to british)

The sensational Alex Harvey Band - the tomahawk Kid (might be a bit to adult)

I got this CD as a birthday present some years ago. Some of it's quite good.

Do what you want, ‘cause a pirate is free,
YOU ARE A PIRATE!
Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is alright to be,
Do what you want ‘cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!

(spoken)You are a pirate!
(crowd)Yay!

We've got us a map, (a map!)
To lead us to a hidden box,
That's all locked up with locks! (with locks!)
And buried deep away!

We'll dig up the box, (the box!)
We know it's full of precious booty!
Burst open the locks!
And then we'll say hooray!

(girl's voice)Yar, har, fiddle di dee.
If you love to sail the sea,
You are a pirate!

(spoken)Weigh anchooor!

Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is alright to be!
Do what you want '‘cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!
Arr yarr, ahoy and avast,
dinky-dink-dink-a-dinkadefast!
Hang the black flag
At the end of the mast!
You are a pirate!

Hahaha! (Yay!)

We're sailing away (set sail!),
Adventure awaits on every shore!
We set sail and explore (ya-har!)
And run and jump all day (Yay!)
We float on our boat (the boat!)
Until its time to drop the anchor,
Then hang up our coats (aye-aye!)
Until we sail again!

(girl's voice)Yar, har, fiddle di dee.
If you love to sail the sea,
You are a pirate!

Laaaand ho!

Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is alright with me!
Do what you want ‘cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!

(spoken)Yar har, wind at your back, lads,
Wherever you go!

(singing)Blue sky above and blue ocean below,
You are a pirate!

(spoken)Hahahahaa!
You're a pirate!
