Shiver me timbers, I've wasted the whole day and not a black flag in sight!  Nor a galleon to behold...

Guess it's the singin' fer me!

 

I promised her rings for her fingers
Sparkling flowers for her flaxen hair
I swore that I’d never
Set sail in foul weather
But stay by her side at the shore

 

Fare thee well oh you Barbary merchants
Fare thee well to the Spanish blockade
Fare thee well to the straits of Gibraltar
And thee treacherous seas of Cathay

 

I gave her my word to be married
And took her sweet vow in return
I swore that I’d never
Set sail in foul weather
But stay by her side at the shore

 

Fare thee well oh you Barbary merchants
Fare thee well to the Spanish blockade
Fare thee well to the straits of Gibraltar
And thee treacherous seas of Cathay

 

I built her a cottage in Chatham
Gave her children to sit by the fire
I swore that I’d never
Set sail in foul weather
But stay by her side at the shore

 

Fare thee well oh you Barbary merchants
Fare thee well to the Spanish blockade
Fare thee well to the straits of Gibraltar
And thee treacherous seas of Cathay

 

But our cottage is too small for a sailor
Without the blue sea and the sky
Though I swore that I’d never
Set sail in foul weather
I left her behind at the shore

 

Take me back oh you Barbary merchants
Let me risk the Spanish blockade
Carry me to the straits of Gibraltar
And the treacherous seas of Cathay

      And so be ye.
      So let's all drink rum
      and shove off ta sea.

      Ye be the captain
      and I be first mate
      We both be drunken pirates
      on this pirate speak'n date

      Follow'n the map
      X shows us tha way
      To booty and plunder
      On Talk Like a Pirate Day!
       
      How can there not be a talk like a pirate day thread here?
      Perhaps it should be Paint (like) a Pirate day.
