These bones and cross three,
A most dreaded symbolization be,
For there they bear those tainted souls,
Of the most highest order of plague and death upon the sea.
Death itself seems can be a-feared,
By these high and mighty fiends,
For he who bears one name, and one name only,
Be king of the seas,
And by Teach’s beard,
When those sullied sails had finally appeared,
No requiem for you or me, there would be,
Tis the year the pirates stroll the dangerous swells,
A-strolling across this deadly sea.
