    From the album “Give Me an RRR!”

    Give me an RRR! Give me a second RRR!
    Give me a third non-traditional, unconditional,
    Unmitigated, unregulated, tax-free RRR!
    RRR you ready?!

    What’s a Pirate’s favorite letter in the alphabet? RRR!
    What does a Pirate say instead of a compliment? RRR!
    How does a Pirate greet the Captain or First Mate? RRR!
    What do Pirates say when they’re running late? RRR!

    Give me an RRR! Gotta give me an RRR!

    These are words that end with the RRR sound…

    Pirates navigate by the North… StaRRR!
    Pirates drink their grog from an old fruit… jaRRR!
    Pirates in a fight often get a… scaRRR
    Pirates like their feathers mixed with… taRRR!

    Give me an RRR! Gotta give me an RRR!

    These are words that start with the RRR sound and are part of a rhyme…

    What’s a Pirate’s favorite vegetable joke?
    Why me blokes it must be RRR-ti-choke (artichoke)
    Where is all the Pirate pinball played?
    Why me Mates it’s in a Pirate RRR-cade (arcade)
    Where are all the Pirate Ballerinas?
    Why me Hearties they’re in RRR-gen-tina (Argentina)
    Where do all the Pirates like to scuba?
    Why me Land Lubbers its’ down in RRR-ruba (Aruba)

    Give me an RRR! Gotta give me an RRR!

    MaRRRvelous!

    EXTRA STANZAS:
    What Pirate Pet rode on Noah’s Ark – why me sharks it was an RRRd-vark (Ardvark)
    Where are a Pirate’s land locked Ma and Pa – why me outlaws they’re in RRR-kansas (Arkansas)
    What’s a Pirate’s favorite Scottish style – why me swabs it’s socks of RRR-gyle (Argyle)
    What does a Pirate wear to impress his lass so bonny – why me looters it’s a suit of RRR-mani (Armani)

    They swim and they sway upon Moonlight Bay
    A starfish bouquet, it has been arrayed

    They make for far off fairy tales
    They look for love that never fails

    From the album Talk Like A Pirate

    When you raise your hand “Hello”
    – You are making waves
    With curtains rising on your show
    – You are making waves
    When you’re splashing in the pool
    – You are making waves
    And you’re acting really cool
    – You are making waves
    Like the morning ocean waking
    – You are making waves

    When your song sails ‘round the world
    – You are making waves
    And your flag onstage unfurls
    – You are making waves
    When your ship it carves the sea
    – You are making waves
    In a scene that sets you free
    – You are making waves
    Like the morning ocean waking
    – You are making waves

    Waves are breaking – it’s breathtaking – you are making waves

    When you bid them all “Good Night”
    – You are making waves
    When your script reads “exit right”
    – You are making waves
    Like the morning ocean waking
    You are making
    No mistaking
    There’s no faking
    You… are… making… waves

    My sister is precious, a wonderful girl
    My sister’s a gem, so she was named Pearl
    And my sister’s mother, she knows what to do
    And Mother of Pearl is my mother too

    She unlocks the music with accordion keys
    She pines for pineapples and tangerines
    Her favorite colors are yellow and blue
    And Mother of Pearl is my mother too

    Her name is Penelope
    She helped develop me
    Her love will always envelop me

    My mother’s a sister, her sister is Jade
    They’re fun in the sun and made in the shade
    And my mother’s mother is really quite grand
    She is Persephone, toes in the sand

    Oh my mother’s children, daughter and son
    Love when she plays her accordion
    She has a firm handle and a soft shoe
    And Mother of Pearl is my mother too

    Her name is Penelope
    She helped develop me
    Her love will always envelop me

    My mother means more than silver and gold
    She’s just too beautiful to behold
    She’s a defender who’s tender and true
    And Mother of Pearl is my mother too

    The first life is for laughing and having lots of fun
    The second is for learning about the moon and sun

    The fourth is for exploring the glory of the seasons

    The Nine Lives of Lucky

    The fifth life is for finding all five of your senses
    The sixth is selecting past and present tenses
    The seventh is for sharing with everyone around
    The eighth is for enjoying the octaves making sound

    The Nine Lives of Lucky
    Lucky the Buccaneer Cat
    The Nine Lives of Lucky
    Lucky the Buccaneer Cat

    The ninth life is for seeing and being who you are

    9 times 2 is 18 – 18 mates of mine – and 1 plus 8 is nine
    9 times 3 is 27 – serpents intertwined – 2 plus 7 is nine
    9 times 4 is 36 – sailing ships in line – and 3 plus 6 is nine
    9 times 5 is 45 – pirate flags a-flyin’ – and 4 plus 5 is nine
    This game can go on and on, for a long, long time, with the number that is 9

    Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7, 8, 9!

    Lucky the Buccaneer Cat

    Classmates, cousins, sisters, brothers
    She’s not like all the others
    She has such a unique feature
    But they call her “freak of nature”

    “Not nice”

    With a hook on her head and love in her look
    Oona, Oona, Oona Uni-hook

    Horses, zebras, donkeys, ponies
    Make her feel so very lonely
    She’s a horse of a different color
    But they call her “dull and duller”

    But she won’t let them roona (ruin ‘er)
    She’d rather sail much soona (sooner)
    On her Pirate Schoona (schooner)
    To Algiers or to Altoona

    “Oona, Oona, Oona, I fart glitter”

    Parents, friends, coaches, teachers
    Cheer for her from the bleachers
    She is true and she is truthful
    And they call her “BEAUTIFUL”

    A pirate unicorn from a storybook
    With a hook on her head and love in her look

    Around her neck around the world

    RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR
    RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR
    RRR, RRR, RRR,
    RRR, RRR, RRR,
    RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR, RRR
    That’s the Pirate Alphabet
    I think that’s a song I better forget

    What song?
    What am I supposed to forget?

    Pirates and Privateers

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

    Oh Pirates and Privateers and scurvy Buccaneers
    If you want to know their names, lend me your ears

    Blackbeard was a Pirate
    Filled with dark desire
    He mixed his grog with gunpowder
    And lit his beard on… FIRE!

    Oh Pirates and Privateers and scurvy Buccaneers
    If you want to know their names, lend me your ears

    Sir Francis Drake was a Privateer
    To Spain and in between
    He had a Letter of the Marque
    From his English… QUEEN!

    Oh Pirates and Privateers and scurvy Buccaneers
    If you want to know their names, lend me your ears

    Captain Henry Morgan
    Was a Buccaneer and then some
    Once famous for his brutal raids
    But now known for his… RUM!

    Oh Pirates and Privateers and scurvy Buccaneers
    If you want to know their names, lend me your ears

    Anne Bonny was a Pirate Woman
    As brave as anyone
    So swift with a sword
    And handy with a gun

    She said to Jack Rackham
    With words meant to flog
    “If you’d fought like a man
    You’d not be treated like a… DOG!”

    Oh Pirates and Privateers and scurvy Buccaneers
    If you want to know their names, lend me your ears

    Pirate Grace O’Malley

    by RRR Carter © 2019 RRR Carter
    From the album Talk Like A Pirate

    You were born in 1530, or sometime thereabouts
    Somewhere on Clare Island, the world first heard your shouts

    You protected sheep and cattle from a hundred hungry eagles
    Even as a young girl, you acted very regal

    CHORUS
    Pirate Queen and Sea Raider from a wild Irish place
    The Dark Lady of Duna, called Bald Headed Grace

    You sailed with Da from Clew Bay, he was Black Oak O’Malley
    You captured ships near shores, those ocean going galleys

    You held onto Hen’s Castle with an iron fisted grip
    You birthed a babe at sea named Toby of the Ships

    Pirate Queen and Sea Raider from a wild Irish place
    The Dark Lady of Duna, called Bald Headed Grace

    Algerian Corsairs – you fought bravely, men did see
    And against that man named Bingham, your English enemy

    You met once with her Highness, your hatches they were battened
    You spoke a common tongue, which happened to be Latin

    Pirate Queen and Sea Raider from a wild Irish place
    The Dark Lady of Duna, called Bald Headed Grace

    Oh, what is myth and what is missed when all the tales they are tallied
    The history and mystery of Pirate Grace O’Malley

    CHORUS:

    Pirate Party Pooper
    Pirate Party Pooper

    You say you are bored
    With the ship and crew
    With everything on board
    You don’t know what to do (who knew?)

    Flip yer frown upside down
    Set a better course
    Flip yer ship around
    Climb back on that horse (seahorse!)

    BRIDGE:
    You were super duper
    And really quite a trooper
    But now you’re just a Pirate…
    A Pirate Party Pooper

    Let me help you out
    I’ll throw you a line
    That’s what life’s about
    And you’re a mate o’ mine (Matey!)

    You were super duper
    And really quite a trooper
    But now you’re just a Pirate…
    A Pirate Party Pooper

    Pirate Party Pooper

    Pirates of the Mayo

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

    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O, the Mayo Pirate motto
    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O, sung with some vibrato
    But they’re not talking trash YO, just YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O

    Aye, they’re Irish Pirates much like Grace O’Malley
    Except that they are friendly and they dilly-dally
    They like to eat, they love to drink, and sleep the day away-o
    They’re on their SUS-HASH-I-PUP, Pirates of the Mayo

    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O, the Mayo Pirate motto
    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O, sung with some vibrato
    But they’re not talking trash YO, just YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O

    It’s MUM-A-TUT-E-YANG, you’re in this gangplank gang
    With BUB-O-O-TUT-YANG, bingo, bongo, bang
    They rhyme like ancient mariners, they yell and sing and say-o
    Oh, we are MUM-A-YANG-O, Pirates of the Mayo

    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O, the Mayo Pirate motto
    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O, sung with some vibrato
    But they’re not talking trash YO, just YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O

    They have a secret code, a language all their own
    ‘H’ is HASH and ‘Y’ is YANG, and vowels are left alone
    Consonants are doubled but with a ‘U’ between
    It’s really not much trouble, if you know what I mean

    They sail the SUS-E-A, their ship will rock and sway-o
    So merrily they row, Pirates of the Mayo

    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O, the Mayo Pirate motto
    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O, sung with some vibrato
    But they’re not talking trash YO, just YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O

    They’re Pirates of the Mayo
    But don’t ever call them sandwich spread
    Or Matey YANG-O-U might end up… on the bread… ha ha

    YANG-O, HASH-O, HASH-O!

    Pirates We Be


    Trad. music, lyrics by RRR Carter © 2016 RRR Carter
    From the album The Flying Pirate Circus

    I will now share a chantey of Pirates at sea
    With a hey-ho Pirates we be
    Captain O’Malley, the Matey, and me
    With you and the crew – Pirates we be
    Pirates, Pirates we be

    We climb in the rigging, we jump in the sea
    With a hey-ho Pirates we be
    Haul up the anchor, we’re finally free
    For fun and for sun – Pirates we be
    Pirates, Pirates we be

    We play on an island beneath a palm tree
    With a hey-ho Pirates we be
    We build a sand castle then take time for tea
    Raise up you cup – Pirates we be
    Pirates, Pirates we be

    We search for the treasure, we look for the key
    With a hey-ho Pirates we be
    X marks the spot most excellently
    Won’t hurt to dig dirt – Pirates we be
    Pirates, Pirates we be

    With eyes to the spyglass and what do we see
    With a hey-ho Pirates we be
    Ships off the starboard one, two, and three
    By golly they’re jolly – Pirates we be
    Pirates, Pirates we be

    If you’re spreading Pirate cheer
    And grinning from ear to ear

    If smiling day and night

    If you’re rowing merrily
    And feeling very care free

    If you’re happy-go-lucky
    And all your rows are so ducky
    You’ve got Pira-TUDE!

    Pira-TUDE! Ha ha!

    If you’re flying Roger Jolly
    And you’re preening just like Polly
    You’ve got Pira-TUDE!

    If you’re sending friendly signals
    And leaving room to wiggle
    You’ve got Pira-TUDE!

    By RRR Carter © 2016 RRR Carter
    From the album Pirate PaRRRty!

    She repeats after me (“she repeats after me”)

    My bird’s first name is Polly, a common parrot name
    Her middle name is Esther, for that she can’t be blamed
    Her last name it is Pants, a thread runs through this game

    She’s Polly Esther Pants – that parrot likes to dance
    She talks and squawks and then duck-walks, if given half a chance
    She’s Polly Esther, Polly Esther Pants

    I took my bird to dinner, she said put it on my bill
    We climbed up in the crow’s nest, it gave her such a thrill
    She says she wants to party like the birds in Brazil

    She’s Polly Esther Pants – that parrot likes to dance
    She talks and squawks and then duck-walks, if given half a chance
    She’s Polly Esther, Polly Esther Pants

    Oh, by gosh, by golly, oh me, oh my, oh no
    It’s Polly Wolly Doodle in a Jolly Roger show (“jolly good show”)

    She’s Polly Esther Pants, Polly Esther, Polly Esther Pants

    They’re birds of a feather, Polly and her friends
    They’re preening on the scene those fashionista hens
    On some days she wears diapers but I guess it just depends

    She’s Polly Esther Pants – that parrot likes to dance
    She talks and squawks and then duck-walks, if given half a chance
    She’s Polly Esther, Polly Esther
    She’s bird you can’t sequester
    She is in her last semester
    Polly Esther, Polly Esther Pants

    “… thought I was a duck… walked around saying ‘Polly wanna quacker’ “
