    Rock the Plank

    By RRR Carter © 2013 RRR Carter
    From the album Pirate PaRRRty!

    From north to south and east to west
    We sail the world, ‘cause we’re the best
    At longitude and latitude
    We’ve got Pirate attitude

    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank
    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank
    By the Outer Banks where Blackbeard sank
    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank

    It’s two, four, seven, three, six, five
    This calico cat has nine lives
    At seven bells and eleven bells
    Listen to our Pirate yells

    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank
    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank
    By the Outer Banks where Blackbeard sank
    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank

    From stem to stern and side to side
    Better batten down, it’s quite a ride
    Crow’s nest above, bilge rats below
    Us Pirate Dogs will steal the show

    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank
    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank
    By the Outer Banks where Blackbeard sank
    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank

    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank
    Gonna rock, rock, rock the plank
    By the Outer Banks where Blackbeard sank
    Gonna rock, rock, rock
    Knock, knock, knock
    Rock, rock, rock the plank

  • addRow Yer Boat

    Row Yer Boat

    Trad. Music, Lyrics by RRR Carter © 2016 RRR Carter
    From the album The Flying Pirate Circus

    Row yer boat, row yer boat, row yer boat

    Row, row, row yer boat
    Gently down the stream
    Throw the pirate overboard
    And listen to him scream!
    “Say what?”

    Row yer boat, row yer boat, row yer boat

    Row, row, row yer boat
    Gently down the stream
    Throw the pirate overboard
    And listen to him scream!
    “Really?”

    Row yer boat, row yer boat, row yer boat

    Row, row, row yer boat
    Gently down the stream
    Throw the pirate overboard
    And listen to him scream!
    “HEY!”

    Throw the pirate overboard
    And listen to him scream!
    “NOOOoooo!”

    Is this the sculling crew or the skeleton crew?
    Work those oars… or else…
    Row me or they’ll throw me… AGAIN!

  • addSafe Harbor

    Safe Harbor


    By RRR Carter (c) RRR Carter 2013

    From the album Pirate PaRRRty!

    

Sailing to a Safe Harbor

    Safe House by the sea

    The sun appears, the coast is clear

    A peaceful place to be



    Wherever you may roam

    Like Ulysses in a poem

    Let the lighthouse guide you home

    

Bring you to a Safe Harbor

    Anchored safe and sound
    
The bay is calm all day long
    
A time to settle down

    Wherever you may roam

    Like Ulysses in a poem

    Let the lighthouse guide you home

    

Take you to a Safe Harbor

    A Safe Haven by the shore

    A gentle breeze through the trees
    
A timeless place once more

  • addScarlett Maroon

    Scarlett Maroon


    By RRR Carter (c) RRR Carter 2016

    From the album The Flying Pirate Circus

    
Scarlett Maroon writes in her room
    
Her precious little place

    Scarlett Maroon at half past noon
    Decides to show her face

    Scarlett Maroon stairs at the moon
    And all of the stars up in space

    She sails a pontoon

    Through the lagoon

    And pays a doubloon

    To ride in a big red balloon

    

Scarlett Maroon dances on dunes
    Beside the silver sea
    
Scarlett Maroon picks up a spoon

    To take a taste of tea

    Then Scarlett Maroon reads on a rune
    The way that the future might be

    She sails a pontoon

    Through the lagoon

    And pays a doubloon

    To ride in a big red balloon

    Scarlett Maroon sings a sad tune
    
A lonely lullaby

    Scarlett Maroon sweeps with a broom
    That she also uses to fly

    Then Scarlett Maroon is gone too soon
    She’s already said her goodbyes

  • addScottish Lochs and Florida Keys

    Scottish Lochs and Florida Keys

    
By RRR Carter (c) RRR Carter 2016

    From the album The Flying Pirate Circus

    
Scottish Lochs and Florida Keys
    Open up the world to me
    Misty days and crystal seas
    Let me see what I can be

    Moors and swamps and glens and glades
    I will go there unafraid

    Scottish Lochs and Florida Keys
    Open up the world to me

    Highlands, Lowlands, in between
    Show me each and every scene
    Awake, asleep, or by a stream
    May this be my lasting dream

    Moors and swamps and glens and glades
    I will go there unafraid

    Scottish Lochs and Florida Keys
    Open up the world to me

    Scurvy Dog and Scaredy Cat

    By RRR Carter © 2010 RRR Carter
    From the album “Give Me an RRR!”

    Sailing on a ship out on the sea
    Dog and Cat are keeping company
    Scurvy Dog is friendly and Scaredy Cat is lonely
    So Dog and Cat are keeping company

    Scurvy Dog picked a tricky trick
    “You play with a ball, I’ll fetch a stick,
    They won’t know you’re scared or that I’m seasick
    So, you play with a ball, I’ll fetch a stick”

    Bow wow, me-ow, OWWW!

    Scurvy Dog was Mate’s best friend
    But Scaredy Cat wouldn’t even pretend
    That Dog followed Mate from end to end
    But Scaredy Cat wouldn’t even pretend

    Bow wow, me-ow, OWWW!

    Scaredy Cat said leave me alone
    Scurvy Dog said “throw me a bone”
    “I’m not in the mood” Scaredy Cat would moan
    Still Scurvy Dog said “throw me a bone”

    Bow wow, me-ow, OWWW!

    Scurvy wore Miranda’s bananas
    Scaredy wore the Cat’s Pajamas
    They both wore Pirate patches and Pirate bandanas
    Yeah, Scaredy wore the Cat’s Pajamas

    Bow wow, me-ow, OWWW!

    Sailing on a ship out on the sea
    Dog and Cat are keeping company
    Scurvy Dog is friendly and Scaredy Cat is lonely
    So Dog and Cat are keeping company

    Shark in the Dark

    By RRR Carter © 2016 RRR Carter
    From the album The Flying Pirate Circus

    Shark in the Dark
    Wonder what it’s gonna do
    Shark in the Dark
    You don’t even have a clue
    Shark in the Dark
    It’s searchin’ for a snack to chew
    Shark in the Dark
    It’s startin’ to get hungry too
    When you see that fin
    And a toothy grin
    It’s a Shark in the Dark, boo-hoo

    Shark in the Dark
    It’s sneakin’ ‘round, out of sight
    Shark in the Dark
    Watch your left and watch your right
    Shark in the Dark
    It’s gotta get a little bite
    Shark in the Dark
    It’s workin’ up an appetite
    When you see those eyes
    … BIG SURPRISE
    It’s a Shark in the Dark, quite a FRIGHT!

    Shark in the Dark
    Wonder what it’s gonna do

    And a toothy grin
    It’s a Shark in the Dark, boo-hoo

  • addSilver Long Johns

    Silver Long Johns

    By RRR Carter © 2013 RRR Carter
    From the album Pirate PaRRRty!

    Silver Long Johns sails the sea for silver
    When all the other pirates go for gold
    Born with his very own silver spoon
    To match his silver cereal bowl

    Hi-o, yo-ho, hi-o Silver Longs Johns
    A crusty, cranky Yankee Buccaneer
    Oh, Silver has worn his silver long johns
    Since that day of five and twenty years

    Silver Long Johns sails to north and south poles
    Most pirates bound for warmth, he’s bound for cold
    But his clouds and clothes both have silver linings
    To heat up his heart and warm his soul

    Hi-o, yo-ho, hi-o Silver Longs Johns
    A crusty, cranky Yankee Buccaneer
    Oh, Silver has worn his silver long johns
    Since that day of five and twenty years

    Silver Long Johns sails the sea for good times
    And not to fight those pirates brave and bold
    He never needs to ever finish first
    A second place silver medal is his goal

    Hi-o, yo-ho, hi-o Silver Longs Johns
    A crusty, cranky Yankee Buccaneer
    Oh, Silver has worn his silver long johns
    Since that day of five and twenty years

  • addThere are Tall Ships

    There are Tall Ships

    
Lyrics by Joyce Espositi Minowitz and RRR Carter, music by RRR Carter
    (c) 2016
 RRR Carter
    From the album The Flying Pirate Circus

    There are Tall Ships (sails in the sky)
    And small ships (sailing on by)
    Now call out to all ships

    There are new ships (day has begun)
    And old ships (day it is done)
    Those bright blue and gold ships

    There are fast ships (wind in the sails)
    And slow ships (trim all the sails)
    And “last time to go” ships

    But you know…

    There are no ships
    Like friendships
    That sail to you heart

    Treasure of Smugglers’ Notch

    Lyrics by RRR Carter, GLoomis, music by RRR Carter © 2010 RRR Carter
    From the album “Give Me an RRR!”

    What is the Treasure, what is the Treasure,
    The Treasure of Smugglers’ Notch?

    It was found by a couple of friends – a Pirate and a Bear
    They hide it in a cave and it’s really, really, really in there (Billy Bob)

    What is the Treasure, what is the Treasure,
    The Treasure of Smugglers’ Notch?

    Hmm… a Pirate likes it and a Bear likes it…

    It looks like the golden sun – a shiny pirate’s treat
    To have some of this treasure would be really, really, really so sweet (sweet, Dude)

    What is the Treasure, what is the Treasure,
    The Treasure of Smugglers’ Notch?

    Hmm… it’s the color of gold and it tastes so sweet…

    It was made by old Queen Bumble and her servants in a ring
    Watch out for their swords, ‘cause they really, really, really can sting

    What is the Treasure, what is the Treasure,
    The Treasure of Smugglers’ Notch?

    Hmm… it was made by Queen Bumble… who can she… be?

    What is the Treasure, what is the Treasure,
    The Treasure of Smugglers’ Notch?

    Tracy: Honey.
    RRtFP: Are you calling me Honey?
    Tracy: No, the treasure is honey!
    RRtFP: Ohh

    That is the Treasure, That is the Treasure,
    The Treasure of Smugglers’ Notch (cha-cha-cha)

  • addWithout the ‘R’

    Without the ‘R’

    By RRR Carter © 2016 RRR Carter
    From the album The Flying Pirate Circus

    The letter ‘P’ can be for pirate, the letter ‘X’ marks the spot
    But ‘R’ is the letter in the alphabet that pirates like a lot

    Without the ‘R’
    A friend becomes a fiend
    And that’s not nice but really mean
    And you cannot redeem

    Without the ‘R’
    The reel becomes and eel
    A shock is what you
    And you cannot repeal

    Without the ‘R’
    The pirates would say ah
    And that’s a bunch of blah
    A load of lah-dee-dah

    Without the ‘R’
    The brooms turn into brooms
    A boat of doom it looms
    The Inn would have no rooms

    Without the ‘R’
    The proof would just go poof
    And facts become aloof
    The house would have no roof

    Without the ‘R’
    The pirates would say ah
    And that’s a bunch of blah
    A load of lah-dee-dah

    Without the ‘R’
    The beards turn into beads
    That’s such a silly deed
    A story you won’t read

    Without the ‘R’
    The pirates would say ah
    And that’s a bunch of blah
    A load of lah-dee-dah

    Without the ‘R’
    Froggy would be foggy
    Feeling sick and soggy
    At least he won’t be groggy

  • addWord Pirate, The

    The Word Pirate

    By RRR Carter © 2013 RRR Carter
    From the album Pirate PaRRRty!

    The word pirate has one I
    Me mates I do not lie
    Take off your patch to see
    It’s P-I-R-A-T-E

    Pirate – one who steals from others on the water

    The word lubber has two B’s
    “to be or not to be”
    Said Shakespeare from afar
    It’s L-U-B-B-E-R

    Lubber – one who loves the land more than the sea

    The word rudder has two D’s
    Don’t deny me please
    It also has two R’s
    It’s R-U-D-D-E-R

    Rudder – determines direction of a ship

    You have to know your letter lads and lasses
    So you can pass through all of life’s classes
    That’s what this is all about
    But do I have to spell “it out”
    I-T, O-U-T

    Banana has three A’s
    Me mateys are amazed
    You peel and chew and then you say
    B-A-N-A-N-A

    Me Buckos that is it, this banana’s got to split!
