The Beast of Pirate’s Bay

Gather weary travelers, I have a tale to tell.
It might just save your lives but only if you listen well.
‘Cause there before the breakers and just around the way,
there’s a sign that says, “Beware The Beast of Pirate’s Bay!”

Some say he’s a guppy a kind threw in the sea. He ate so
many sailors now he’s bigger than a tree. His teeth are sharp
as scissors his claws, they are like knives. And if you think
he’s ugly, wait ’til you see his insides!
Oh, don’t you sail and don’t you row and certainly
don’t you swim, ’cause if you aren’t careful you’ll end up
inside of him. He’ll eat you up, he’ll spit you out. You’d
better stay away. Heed the sign that says “Beware The Beast
of Pirate’s Bay!”

Some say he’s a serpent that came straight from hell to eat
the souls of pirates and other ne’er-do-wells. Some they
don’t believe it as for me I’ve got a hunch. ‘Cause they used
to have some pirates here. But he ate them all for lunch.
Oh, don’t you sail and don’t you row and certainly
don’t you swim, ’cause if you aren’t careful you’ll end up
inside of him. He’ll eat you up, he’ll spit you out. You’d
better stay away. Heed the sign that says “Beware The Beast
of Pirate’s Bay!”

Well, Captain Hook, you’ve heard of him, he came to
Pirate’s Bay. It seems his little nemesis had nearly got away.
He reached into the water to grab at Peter Pan. There was
a crunch and a scream! And now that scurvy pirate’s got hooks
on both his hands!
Oh, don’t you sail and don’t you row and certainly
don’t you swim, ’cause if you aren’t careful you’ll end up
inside of him. He’ll eat you up, he’ll spit you out. You’d
better stay away. Heed the sign that says “Beware The Beast
of Pirate’s Bay!”

Well, Blackbeard the Pirate, you know for what he’s feared.
It’s mostly for the dark, imposing color of his beard. He saw
the beast and now nobody’s scared of him because, his beard
turned white and all agree, he looks like Santa Claus.
Oh, don’t you sail and don’t you row and certainly
don’t you swim, ’cause if you aren’t careful you’ll end up
inside of him. He’ll eat you up, he’ll spit you out. You’d
better stay away. Heed the sign that says “Beware The Beast
of Pirate’s Bay!”

Well, now the tavern’s empty and there’s only you and me.
And if you care I’d like to share how this song came to be.
So come a little closer if you really want to know. This very
sad and woeful tale happened so long ago. Well, I was just a
little boy when I went to Pirate’s Bay and there I saw a
creature that was very much dismayed. With a harpoon in
his dorsal fin and a hook stuck in his side, this mighty whale
was in such pain, we both began to cry. I pushed and I
shoved but he wouldn’t give way into the deeper waters off
our shallow Pirate’s Bay. All I could do to help him was to
keep people away, so I wrote a sign that said, “Beware The
Beast of Pirate’s Bay!” And what did it say?
Oh, don’t you sail and don’t you row and certainly don’t you
swim, ’cause if you aren’t careful you’ll end up inside of
him. He’ll eat you up, he’ll spit you out. You’d better stay
away. Heed the sign that says “Beware!. Hell I should know
I put it there!
Heed the sign that says, “Beware The Beast of Pirate’s Bay!”
