If You Want to be a pirate 

Climb on board we’ve been waiting for you

If You Want to be a pirate 

Take me word   It’s easy to do 

 

Tie a scarf around your head, make a ship out of your bed

See the constellations on your ceiling

When you drift off to sleep, out across the oceans deep

Your dreams will have that pirate feeling

 

Get yourself  a paper bag draw yourself a pirate flag

Hoist your Jolly Roger on a broom

Just cover up one eye  through a cardboard tube you’ll spy

Ports of call all around your room

 

To be a pirate every day here’s a few things you things you can say

Say ARRRRR to everyone you know

Tell every girl and boy  Hey Matey Ships Ahoy

Give them all a friendly Yo Ho Ho!

 

If You Want to be a pirate 

Climb on board we’ve been waiting for you

If You Want to be a pirate 

Take me word   It’s easy to do

 

 Now that you’ve become a pirate 

Climb on board we’ve been waiting for you

Now that you’ve become a pirate 

We’ll all sail across the ocean blue

We’ll all sail across the ocean blue
