    1717 (Black Sam Bellamy)

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

    Travel with me to Golden Age of Pirates…

    He was born in Old England was Sam Bellamy
    He came to Cape Cod across the sea
    To see the New World, to make a new start
    Then he saw her face and he lost his heart
    To win her hand he went sailin’ for gold
    Southward to Florida, he was so bold
    But havin’ no luck, he went on account
    For Pirate Booty in any amount

    These tales they tell-a-me of Black Sam Bellamy
    And 1717, hey-ho, 1717

    His crew came from countries all over the world
    But they had one cause when Roger unfurled
    With John Julian – a Honduran Guide
    From Wales, Thomas Davis – hammer held high
    With Hendrick Quintor – African/Dutch
    Of sailin’ and ships, he knew so much
    From Antigua, John King – eleven years old
    He left mama’s side for Pirates and gold

    These tales they tell-a-me of Black Sam Bellamy
    And 1717, hey-ho, 1717

    The crew had a vote and the Captain was fair
    ‘cause they signed the articles, all who were there
    When in the Bahamas, they spied with their eyes
    The galley the Whydah and she was a prize
    She was a ship in the Triangle Trade
    That transported people to sell them as slaves
    They captured the Whydah and loot it was seized
    But all those on board, they were released

    These tales they tell-a-me of Black Sam Bellamy
    And 1717, hey-ho, 1717

    Then back to New England for unfinished deeds
    He drove the Whydah with most urgent speed
    Her name was Maria and Sam loved her so
    He longed to see her but naught did he know
    That a wicked Nor’easter on April Two Six
    Would take all but two, turn timber to sticks
    He went down with the ship, Captain Sam Bellamy
    Prince of the Pirates, Robin Hood of the Sea

    From the album Pirate PaRRRty!

    Anne Bonny sailed over the ocean
    Anne Bonny sailed down by the sea
    Anne Bonny sailed out with those Buckos
    Named Jack Rackham and Mary Read

    Bring back Calico Jack
    Bring back that Bucko we plead – indeed!
    Bring back Calico Jack
    With Anne Bonny and Mary Read

    Anne Bonny sailed out for adventure
    Anne Bonny sailed out to be free
    Anne Bonny sailed for buried treasure
    With Jack Rackham and Mary Read

    Bring back Calico Jack
    Bring back that Bucko we plead – indeed!
    Bring back Calico Jack
    With Anne Bonny and Mary Read

    Anne Bonny sailed into the sunset
    Anne Bonny sailed bearing a dream
    Anne Bonny sailed to be a legend
    With Jack Rackham and Mary Read

    Better believe it me biters of barnacle biscuits…

  • addBlack Snake Tale

    Black Snake Tale

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

    The ship Black Snake it sailed the lake, smuggling its cargo
    And three did die because the Fly defended the embargo

    President Thomas Jefferson said don’t trade with the French
    The same goes for the British, not even a percent
    But ships of trade they travelled on the Hudson and Champlain
    With goods for France and Britain – so much to lose and gain

    The ship Black Snake it sailed the lake, smuggling its cargo
    And three did die because the Fly defended the embargo

    The Snake it slithered through the night to Canada and back
    While the crew aboard the Fly were trying to keep track

    The ship Black Snake it sailed the lake, smuggling its cargo
    And three did die because the Fly defended the embargo

    Dean and Mudgett beached the Snake and slid into the forest
    Farrington’s men followed them much to their remorse
    The Smugglers’ Wall Gun fired fifteen balls of lead
    Ormsby, Marsh, and Drake were filled with more than dread

    The ship Black Snake it sailed the lake, smuggling its cargo
    And three did die because the Fly defended the embargo

    Cyrus Dean he had a trial, the court it had its say
    Ten thousand came to Burlington on his Judgement Day

    The ship Black Snake it sailed the lake, smuggling its cargo
    And three did die because the Fly defended the embargo

    Some they call them outlaws, smugglers, thieves and pirates
    Others call them heroes, it’s you who must decide it

    The ship Black Snake it sailed the lake, smuggling its cargo
    And three did die because the Fly defended the embargo

    BLACK SNAKE!

    Blackbeard’s Blues

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

    This might be slightly fanciful…

    He was young and he was bored in a seaport town
    He was young and he was bored, feeling oh so down
    With nothing left to lose but a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Joined the Royal Navy, they said Britannia Rules
    Joined the Royal Navy but they treated him cruel
    It was not a pleasure cruise but a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Met some Buccaneers in the Caribbean
    Met some Buccaneers – said they were glad to see ‘im
    But it was all a ruse and a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    He became the captain of a Pirate Ship
    He became the captain but he lost his grip
    Served turtle stew and a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Lit his beard on fire like a demon’s son
    Lit his beard on fire then he fired his gun
    He was a burning fuse with a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Made a blockade ‘round Charleston way
    Made a blockade to get the medicine they say
    To cure the scurvy and the flu and a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Finally met his end off of Ocracoke
    Finally met his end amid the blood and smoke
    With his life he paid his dues now there’s no more Blackbeard’s Blues

    Thirteen year old Ben Franklin wrote:
    “It’s better to swim in the sea below
    Than swing in the air and feed the crow
    Says jolly Ned Teach of Bristol”

    He was young and he was bored in a seaport town (he didn’t’ have a crown)
    He was young and he was bored, feeling oh so down (dooby-doo-down-down)
    With nothing left to lose but a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Joined the Royal Navy, they said Britannia Rules (and the Union Jack is cool)
    Joined the Royal Navy but they treated him cruel (Don’t Be Cruel to a heat that’s true)
    It was not a pleasure cruise but a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Blackbeard’s Blues – feeling bruised
    Blackbeard’s Blues – used and abused
    When Pirates get bad news it’s a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Met some Buccaneers in the Caribbean (and they went water skiin’)
    Met some Buccaneers – said they were glad to see ‘im (took ‘im to a Pirate Museum)
    But it was all a ruse and a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    He became the captain of a Pirate Ship (he sunk my Battleship)
    He became the captain but he lost his grip (with a slip and a slide on the slip)
    Served turtle stew and a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Blackbeard’s Blues – feeling bruised
    Blackbeard’s Blues – used and abused
    When Pirates get bad news it’s a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Lit his beard on fire like a demon’s son (fee-fi-fo-fum)
    Lit his beard on fire then he fired his gun (see how they run)
    He was s burning fuse with a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Made a blockade ‘round Charleston way (to pad his resume)
    Made a blockade to get the medicine they say (and the Phd’s OK)
    To cure the scurvy and the flu and a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Blackbeard’s Blues – feeling bruised
    Blackbeard’s Blues – used and abused
    When Pirates get bad news it’s a case of Blackbeard’s Blues

    Finally met his end off of Ocracoke (was that some kind of joke)
    Finally met his end amid the blood and smoke (“That’s All Folks!”)
    With his life he paid his dues now there’s no more Blackbeard’s Blues

    From the album “Give Me an RRR!”

    A terrible notion, the ocean in motion
    It can be quite wild and wavy
    Hope we don’t dock ‘er, down in that locker
    With the Bones of Jonesy Davy
    Oh, the Bones of Jonesy Davy

    They fed the whole crew some swordfish stew
    And a pail of whale tail gravy
    Feeling much sicker, sending us quicker
    To the Bones of Jonesy Davy
    Oh, the Bones of Jonesy Davy

    Pirates, Privateers, and Buccaneers
    Whose business is so shady
    They’ll receive their reward when they are moored
    Near the Bones of Jonesy Davy
    Oh, the Bones of Jonesy Davy

    Ghosts off the coast float in their boats
    Making us scared and crazy
    Rainclouds will storm, a monster will form
    From with the Bones of Jonesy Davy
    Oh, the Bones of Jonesy Davy

    There’s no returning from this haunted journey
    Not fit for gent or lady
    Sailors are drunken, treasure is sunken (sunken, sunken)
    Like with the Bones of Jonesy Davy
    Oh, the Bones of Jonesy Davy

    Oh, the Bones of Jonesy Davy

    Do you know your way around a ship?
    If you don’t, well, here RRR tips
    First face in just the same direction as me…

    Bow to the bow – that’s the front
    Then we pull a pirate stunt
    Turn to the stern – that’s the back
    Then salute Captain Jack
    Bow to the bow like before
    Now it’s time for some more

    Slide to the portside – that’s the left
    Then back to the middle – take a step
    Toward the starboard – that’s the right
    Then haul the line with all yer might
    Heave away, haul away
    Heave away, haul away

    Bow to the bow – that’s the front
    Then we pull a pirate stunt
    Turn to the stern – that’s the back
    Then salute Captain Jack
    Bow to the bow like before
    Now it’s time for some more

    The mast goes up and down
    The yardarm goes across
    We watch the sun and stars
    To keep from getting lost

    Slide to the portside – that’s the left
    Then back to the middle – take a step
    Toward the starboard – that’s the right
    Then haul the line with all yer might
    Heave away, haul away
    Heave away, haul away

    Bow to the bow – that’s the front
    Then we pull a pirate stunt
    Turn to the stern – that’s the back
    Then salute Captain Jack
    Bow to the bow… that’s all for now!

    I woke up this morning and what did I see
    A chest full of treasure under the tree
    Maybe there’s some for me mateys
    Maybe there’s some for me

    Buccaneer Bells are ringing
    Ding, ding, ding, dong (ding, ding, ding, dong)
    The Captain and crew, they are singing
    Sing, sing a song (sing, sing a song)
    A bounty booty they’re bringing
    Bring it along

    I went to the table and I took a seat
    Tankards with drinks and treats there to eat
    Save room for some of the sweet things
    Save room for someone who’s sweet

    Buccaneer Bells are ringing
    Ding, ding, ding, dong (ding, ding, ding, dong)
    The Captain and crew, they are singing
    Sing, sing a song (sing, sing a song)
    A bounty booty they’re bringing
    Bring it along

    I walked down the lane under moonbeams
    The town was a-glow with lights all a-gleam
    Don’t wake me up if I’m dreaming
    Don’t wake me up from this dream

    Buccaneer Bells are ringing
    Ding, ding, ding, dong (ding, ding, ding, dong)

    Sing, sing a song (sing, sing a song)

    From the album “Give Me an RRR!”

    He’s so sick of Friendly Pirate Songs
    He thinks he’s gonna cry
    He gets so very angry
    And here’s the reason why

    He’s the Cranky Pirate, he’s got an attitude
    He’s the Cranky Pirate – a naught nasty dude

    He’s not a Friendly Pirate
    But the kind from scary books
    With a leg like Long John Silver’s
    And a hand like Captain Hook’s

    He’s the Cranky Pirate, he’s got an attitude
    He’s the Cranky Pirate – a naught nasty dude

    He never cleans his cabin
    He doesn’t swab the deck
    When he’s at the wheel
    The ship get in a wreck… SHIPWRECK!

    He’s the Crank Pirate, he’s got an attitude
    He’s the Crank Pirate – a naught nasty dude

    He likes to slingshot seagulls
    Makes mermaids wanna hide
    Puts dolphins on a dog leash
    Keeps parrots tongue-tied

    Cranky Pirates are more fun
    Than Friendly Pirates… RRR
    But the crew just stays away
    And pays him no regard

    He’s the Cranky Pirate, he’s got an attitude
    He’s the Cranky Pirate – a naught nasty dude

    Dad’s alright, he’s a Pirate, Dad’s alright by me

    He dresses like a Buccaneer but without weaponry
    He deals with everyone on board with only honesty
    His treasure chests are watertight, they are not leaky
    He sells expensive treasure locks but throws in a free key

    Dad’s alright, he’s a Pirate, sailing on the sea
    Dad’s alright, he’s a Pirate, Dad’s alright by me

    He makes me drink up all my juice for its vitamin C
    He says it’ll keep me healthy, so I won’t get scurvy
    And he shows me the ropes, tests my abilities
    He can be so serious but also so silly

    Dad’s alright, he’s a Pirate, sailing on the sea
    Dad’s alright, he’s a Pirate, Dad’s alright by me

    But he won’t ask for directions when he’s lost at sea
    He sails around in circles and that makes mom crazy

    Renaldo Ulysses (The Free-key Pirate)

    And he takes lots of business trips, often to Bali
    But he brings me many trinkets and a bird Polly

    Doubloons and all the other coins were counted out in eight
    So let’s have fun before we’re done and play about with eight

    Figure eights

    Two times four is eight, two times eight – sixteen
    It’s sixty four we calculate with eight pieces of eight

    It’s sixty four we calculate with eight pieces of eight

    Eight pieces of eight, a jolly good amount

    Oh, the Feats of Jean Lafitte
    Were really quite petite
    One, two, he buckled his shoe
    And marched on down the street
    The Feats of Jean Lafitte

    He stomped in a swamp near New Orleans
    He jumped on a stump he was full of red beans
    He sailed the Gulf of Mexico with a crew of fiends

    Oh, the Feats of Jean Lafitte
    Were really quite petite
    One, two, he buckled his shoe
    And marched on down the street
    The Feats of Jean Lafitte

    A trader and a slaver and thick with thieves
    His favorite flavored coffee was chicory
    In the War of 1812 he helped Old Hickory

    Oh, the Feats of Jean Lafitte
    Were really quite petite
    One, two, he buckled his shoe
    And marched on down the street
    The Feats of Jean Lafitte

    Where’s my beignet? Crescent City. Money Hill. Enchante Aristide.

    He made a run to Galveston for guns and supplies
    He camped out in Campeche to spy for Spanish Eyes
    With animals and criminals he lived a pack of lies

    Flotsam and Jetsam

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

    Flotsam and Jetsam – they used to be at sea

    Once they were a mighty ship
    Planks and boards and beams
    But then they went a-breaking
    Apart at the seams

    Flotsam is such a wreck
    Jetsam’s all washed up
    They used to be at sea
    But now they’re on the shore
    No, nay, never, they’ll never sail no more

    Cannonballs from Pirate Ships
    Smashed and shivered timbers
    Out they went with a bang
    And not some skimpy whimper

    Flotsam is such a wreck
    Jetsam’s all washed up
    They used to be at sea
    But now they’re on the shore
    No, nay, never, they’ll never sail no more

    They danced upon the rocks
    They surfed upon the waves
    This went on forever
    Or for a few days… in haze… quite crazed… CRAZED!

    Flotsam is such a wreck
    Jetsam’s all washed up
    They used to be at sea
    But now they’re on the shore
    No, nay, never, they’ll never sail no more

    No, nay, never, they’ll never sail no more
    No, nay, never, they’ll never sail no more
    No, nay, never… NO MORE!

    The Flying Pirate Circus

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

    Billowing sails and banners on rails
    Barrels and boxes and upside down pails
    Me mates take a seat, you’re in for a treat

    “Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Pirates, Princesses,
    Barnacle Bayleaf and Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate (that’s Yours Truly) present… “

    The Flying Pirate Circus out on the Salty Sea
    The Flying Pirate Circus – a sight for all to see

    The cook becomes a silly clown
    He wears a pot upon his crown
    He plays a tune upon his spoons
    Pretends a bowl is a balloon
    With his hand he lifts a weight
    While on his hook he lifts a plate

    The Flying Pirate Circus out on the Salty Sea
    The Flying Pirate Circus – a sight for all to see

    There’s a show beside the ship
    Through hoops and loops the dolphins flip
    Seals they splash and ring the bells
    The octopus is juggling shells
    And from a fishy fairytale
    It’s a ballerina whale

    The Flying Pirate Circus out on the Salty Sea
    The Flying Pirate Circus – a sight for all to see

    Pirates swing and risk their necks
    From mast to mast above the decks
    With naught below but fishing nets
    They crew they wait and make their bets
    Just who will fly and who will flop
    And who will do a mid-air stop
    Twist and twirl and turn and drop
    Then bounce back to the tippy top

    The Flying Pirate Circus out on the Salty Sea
    The Flying Pirate Circus – a sight for all to see

    For you, your crew, and me

    Lyrics by RRR Carter, Music by RRR Carter/Max Shaw © 2016 RRR Carter
    From the album The Flying Pirate Circus

    It’s F to the R to the I, to the E-N-D-L-Y

    I’m the Friendly Pirate you can call me FP, I’m the MC of the Seven C’s
    I talk like a pirate on 9-19 (September 19th) and every other day in between
    I don’t have a sword and I don’t have a knife, I roll like a pirate but I roll real nice
    Got me a crew of family and friends who go so deep they give me the bends
    April’s a month and the Very First Matey, she’s once, twice, three times a Lady
    My sister Pearl, she’s a Princess, she’s got purple pearls and a purple dress
    My Dad’s Renaldo, he’s quite freaky, he lights it up with a torch of tiki
    Captain Feathersword, Captain Crunch, hangin’ with them breakfast, lunch

    It’s F to the R to the I, to the E-N-D-L-Y

    We’re kickin’ it wicked in Boston Town, me hearties Tea Party they like to throw down
    Getting’ so silly with friends in Philly, my pal Sally Star and Barnacle Billy
    Plannin’ to land in the land of San Fran, what the heck, off the deck, on your feet and jam
    Sailin’ the world to every port from Istanbul to old New York
    To Santiago – chillin’ Chile, they call it Sanhattan – que pasa que
    Findin’ the limes in Lima, Peru, good for the scurvy and the pirate flu
    To the fly Samurai in To-kay-o, yo ho ho, arigato
    I’m the Friendly Pirate – Rockin’ Ron, I get my beats from Kazakhstan

    Heave matey, ho matey, tote that barge, LISTO, LISTO, livin’ real large
    Park the car in Harvard Yard from Argentina to Zanzibar

    One for the money and two for the show, three for the booty and four for the gold
    Then Silver Long Johns steps on board, wonder where that stowaway stored
    Put your peg leg in, your peg leg out, my mama said knock you out
    Diggin’ the riggin’ on my pirate ship, flip the script, get a grip ‘cause we’re gonna let ‘er rip
    All up in the wheel house steerin’ this boat, I scream, you scream, ROOT BEER FLOAT
    Speech, Vanilla, Guru, Premier – met them all in the old school years
    Peeps on the shore shout ahoy, crew on board shoutin’ BOY
    To the crazy racist, Friendly Pirate Hater – you’re gonna walk the plank – see ya later gator!

    It’s F to the R to the I, to the E-N-D-L-Y

    From the album “Give Me an RRR!”

    Avast ye sad-faced sea raiders and bad boy buccaneers
    If you don’t know the time, you better get a watch
    ‘cause I’m comin’ at ya from Smugglers’ Notch… 8-0-2

    I’m the Friendly Pirate you can call me FP, I’m the MC of the Seven C’s
    I talk like a pirate on 9-19 (September 19th) and every other day in between
    I don’t have a sword and I don’t have a knife, I roll like a pirate but I roll real nice
    Got me a crew of family and friends who go so deep they give me the bends

    My sister Pearl, she’s a Princess, she’s got purple pearls and a purple dress
    My dad’s Renaldo, he’s quite freaky, lights it up with a torch of tiki
    Merhaba baba, swabba-swabba-swabba, gabba-gabba-hey, gabba-hey, gabba-gabba
    Captain Feathersword, Captain Crunch, hangin’ with them breakfast, lunch
    Got send a send a shout out to my man Johnny Depp, Rollin’ the Stones, strollin’ the deck
    He sees Kiera Knightly and twice a day, like a sparrow and a swan they fly away

    Heave matey, ho matey, tote that barge – pirates on board go RRR!
    Two by two but this aint no ark – pirates on board go RRR!
    A game of Go Fish with card sharks – pirates on board go RRR!
    But the deck is stacked from the start – pirates on board go RRR!
    I’m the King of Hearts but call me Czar – pirates on board go RRR!

    Swash the buckle. Pirata Amigable, Dostum Pirat, we’ll hook you up

    Gotta lot of knots and 20,000 leagues, gotta sloop and group full of pirate freaks
    We’re kickin’ it wicked in Boston Town, me hearties Tea Party they like to throw down
    Getting’ so silly with friends in Philly, my pal Sally Star and Barnacle Billy
    Plannin’ to land in the land of San Fran, what the heck, off the deck, on your feet and jam
    Sailin’ the world to every port from Istanbul to old New York
    To Santiago – chillin’ Chile, they call it Sanhattan – que pasa que
    Findin’ the limes in Lima, Peru, good for the scurvy and the pirate flu
    To the fly Samurai in To-kay-o, yo ho ho, arigato
    I’m the Friendly Pirate aka Rockin’ Ron, I get my beats from Kazakhstan

    Ayoba-yoba, you’re in charge – pirates on board go RRR!
    Park the car in Harvard Yard – pirates on board go RRR!
    From Argentina to Zanzibar – pirates on board go RRR!
    To the moon and sun and starfish star – pirates on board go RRR!

    Fifteen men on a dead man’s chest. Droppin my anchor like… beats in my rap

    It’s one for the money and two for the show, three for the booty and four for the gold
    Then Silver Long Johns steps on board, wonder where that stowaway stored
    Put your peg leg in, your peg leg out, my mama said knock you out
    Now check out my style and pirate steez, I’m the blingin’ bucko on the Seven C’s

    Everywhere a rock
