On the seven seas I'm known as Big Beardy Dave
‘cos I’m big, called David and I never shave
I’ll tell you for why,
I once gave it a try,
But the ship lost its balance and I lost an eye

Oh, the pirate’s life is the life for me
But it gets a bit tricky when I need a wee
Or even a poo,
There’s sharks in the loo
Now me leg’s made of wood and me bottom is too

I’m scurvy sea-scum
Full of biscuits and rum
And I’ll plunder and pillage! (But don’t tell me mum).

    Reading this I perceived
    that you have achieved
    the finest of arts
    to weld language (parts)
    together and make
    no single mistake
    in rhythm nor measure.
    Thanks! - It's been a pleasure.
