Captains All

Long ago, when I was just a lad
The other boys hated me,
Said I made ‘em mad.
Guess I didn’t fit in with the norm
Never known why people were
So desperate to conform.

I remembered something that you said
Those nine words of yours
Stuck inside my head
You said: “Prince Charming, ridicule
Is nothing to be scared of.”
So I took it as a rule.

I slipped on my finest suit
Shined up my pirate boots
Put a medal on my lapel
Thought of you
And gave them hell!

We’re Captain’s All
And we run this show
And we only sail
Where we want to go
And we live at ease
Doing as we please
Like pirates drifting out at sea

All of us has weathered
Through a storm
You know, they say:
“What doesn’t kill you
Often makes you better.”

We live to tell and carry on
After all, it’s nothing but
A patch of nasty weather
Some of us are still around
We’re still the dandy highwaymen
That they’re too scared to mention
And when you board you make us proud
It’s Admiral on deck
And we’re standing at attention!

I slipped on my finest suit
Shined up my pirate boots
Put a medal on my lapel
We think of you
And give them hell!

We’re Captain’s All
And we run this show
And we only sail
Where we want to go
And we live at ease
Doing as we please
Like pirates drifting out at sea

That’s right:
We’re Captain’s All
And we run this show
And we only sail
Where we want to go
If you have orders,
Keep them to yourself
‘Cause the only ones we follow
Are our own

As for the ones whom we adore:
Those of our friends
Who still are lost out in the storm
We raise a glass to you,
Leave on a light or two
In case you ever make it on,
There’s always room onboard because

We’re Captain’s All
And we run this show
And we only sail
Where we want to go
And we live at ease
Doing as we please
Like pirates drifting out at sea

That’s right:
We’re Captain’s All
And we run this show
And we only sail
Where we want to go
If you have orders,
Keep them to yourself
‘Cause the only ones we follow
Are our own

Yo-ho Oh-oh
