Story

Here's a dance track from the CD "If You Want to be a Pirate: Songs for Young Buccaneers".  The moves: raise the sails, swab the deck, bale it out, and hoist the flag. No slacking!

Lyrics

A Lot of Work to be a Pirate  Em

 

It’s a lot of work to be a pirate

When your ship is powered by the breeze

So everybody raise the sails

So our ship will keep sailing on the sea

 

Raise the sails Raise the sails Raise the sails

 

It’s a lot of work to be a pirate

And we can’t let the deck get slippery

So Everybody swab the deck

So we don’t slide off into the sea

 

Swab the Deck! Swab the Deck! Everybody Swab the Deck! 

 

It’s a lot of work to be a pirate

There can’t be water in the boat

So Everybody bale out the water

If we want to keep the ship afloat

 

Bale it out Bale it out Everybody Bale it out

 

It’s a lot of work to be a pirate 

And we have to fill our foes with fear

So Everybody hoist the jolly roger

To let the other ships know we’re near

 

Hoist the flag Hoist the flag Everybody Hoist the flag
