Shiver Me Timbers __ Something Better __ Sailing For Adventure __ A Professional Pirate
Cabin Fever __ Love Led Us Here


Shiver My Timbers
Shiver my timbers, shiver my soul
Yo oh heave ho
There are men whose hearts as as black as coal
Yo oh heave ho
And they sailed their ship cross the ocean blue
A blood-thirsty captain and a cut-throat crew
It's as dark a tale as was ever told
Of the lust for treasure and the love of gold
Shiver my timbers, shiver my sides
Yo oh heave ho
There are hungers as strong as the wind and tides
Yo oh heave ho
And those buccaneers drowned their sins in rum
The devil himself would have to call them scum
Every man aboard would have killed his mate
For a bag of guineas or a piece of eight
A piece of eight
A piece of eight
Five, six, seven, eight
Hulla wacka ulla wacka something not right
Many wicked icky things gonna happen tonight
Hulla wacka ulla wacka sailor man beware
When de money in the ground dere's murder in de air
Murder in de air
One more time now
Shiver my timbers, shiver my bones
Yo oh heave ho
There are secrets that sleep with old Davy Jones
Yo oh heave ho
When the mainsail's set and the anchor's weighed
There's no turning back from any course that's laid
And when greed and villainy sail the sea
You can bet your boots there'll be treachery
Shiver my timbers, shiver my sails
Dead men tell no tales

Something Better
Jim: I look around here and I want to cry
(Rizzo: "Aw, me too")
I feel like the world is passing me by
(Gonzo: "It is!")
And I just can't help but wonder
Am I doomed to wash and dry
And is it a curse I'm under
To do it till I die?
(Gonzo: "Well, I hope not." Rizzo: "Yeah...") When I could be an explorer
(Gonzo: "Sure you could!")
Sailing off to distant lands
(Rizzo: "Not so fast")
Instead of spending every afternoon
Just getting dish pan hands
My future looks like nowhere that I want to be
There's gotta be something better
Something better
There's gotta be something better than this for me

Gonzo: Well, now your talkin'! If its weird and wild let's go and find it
The crazier the better is what I say
Rizzo: Yeah, that's true
To tell the truth I really wouldn't mind it
If we find someplace with ten square meals a day
Jim/Gonzo: Let danger call my name
Rizzo: If it does I'm gonna hide
Jim: I'll put my courage to the test
Gonzo: And I'll be my your side
Rizzo: We'll be by your side
Jim: There's gotta be something better than this
Gonzo/Rizzo: Something more than this
Jim: I know there's so much out there to see
And I know this life I'm living can be my destiny
All: There's gotta be something better
Something better
Jim: There's gotta be something better than this for me
Gonzo: And me!
Rizzo: Wait a minute, what about me?
All: There's something better than this for you and

Sailing For Adventure
When the course is laid and the anchor's weighed
A sailor's blood begins racing
With our hearts unbound and our flag unfurled
We're under way and off to see the world
Under way and off to see the world
Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Manly men are we
Sailing for adventure on the deep blue see
(Sam: "Safely now, Mr. Silver. Let's not get sloppy, just because we're singing!")
Danger walks the deck we say what the heck
We laugh at the perils we're facing
Every storm we ride is its own reward
And people die by falling overboard
And people die by falling overboard
Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Hoist the sails and sing
Sailing for adventure on the big, blue wet thing

I love to see 'em cry when they walk the plank
I prefer to cut a throat
I love to hang 'em high and watch their little feet try to walk in the air while their faces turn blue
Just kidding
It's a good life on a boat

There are distant lands with burning sands
That call across the oceans
There are bingo games every fun-filled day
And Margaritas at the midnight buffet
Margaritas at the midnight buffet
Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Should have took a train
Sailing for adventure on the bounding main
The salty breezes whisper
Who knows what lies ahead
I just know I was born to live the life my father lead
The stars will be our compass
Wherever we may roam
And our mates will always be
Just like a family
And though we may put into port, the sea is always home
(Fozzie: "All right, Mr. Bimbo! I didn't know you had such a good singing voice --- your welcome!")
We'll chase our dreams standing on our own
Over the horizon to the great unknown
Hey ho we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Bold and brave and free
Sailing for adventure
It's so nauseating
Sailing for adventure
So exhilarating
Sailing for adventure
We're all celebrating!
On the deep blue sea

A Professional Pirate
When I was just a lad looking for my true vocation
My father said ‘Now son, this choice deserves deliberation
Though you could be a doctor or perhaps a financier
My boy why not consider a more challenging careerElt;br> Hey ho ho You'll cruise to foreign shores
And you'll keep your mind and body sound
By working out of doors
True friendship and adventure are what we can't live without
And when you're a professional pirate
That's what the job's about
(Long John: "Upstage, lads, this is my ONLY number!")
Now take Sir Francis Drake, the Spanish all despise him
But to the British he's a hero and they idolize him
It's how you look at buccaneers that makes them bad or good
And I see us as members of a noble brotherhood
Hey ho ho We're honorable men
And before we lose our tempers we will always count to ten
On occasion there may be someone you have to execute
But when your a professional pirate
You don't have to wear a suit..... what?
I could have been a surgeon
I like taking things apart
I could have been a lawyer
But I just had too much heart
I could have been in politics
Cause I've always been a big spender
And me...I could have been a contender
Some say that pirates steal and should be feared and hated
I say we're victims of bad press it's all exaggerated
We'd never stab you in the back, we'd never lie or cheat
We're just about the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet
Hey ho ho It's one for all for one
And we'll share and share alike with you and love you like a son
We're gentlemen of fotune and that's what we're proud to be
And when your a professional pirate
You'll be honest brave and free
The soul of decency
You'll be loyal and fair and on the square
And most importantly
When you're a professional pirate You're always in the best of company

Cabin Fever
I got cabin fever it's burning in my brain
I've got cabin fever it's driving me insane
We got cabin fever, we're flipping our bandanas
Been stuck at sea so long we have simply gone bananas

Ariba!
Chica chica boom
A chica chica boom boom chic
Chica chica boom
A chica chica boom boom chic

We got cabin fever we've lost what sense we had
We got cabin fever, we're all going mad
Grab your partner by the ears
Lash him to the wheel
Do-si-do step on his toe
Listen to him squeal
Allemande left, allemande right
It's time to sail or sink
Swing your partner over the side
Drop him in the drink
We got cabin fever
No if's, and's, or but's
We're disoriented
And demented
And a little nuts

Ach du lieber Volswagen car(Yodel-lay-ee-hoo)
Saur braten viener schnitzel
Und a vunder bar(Yodel-lay-ee-hoo)

We were sailing, sailing the wind was on our side
And then it died
I've got cabin fever
I think I've lost my grip
I'd like to get my hands on
Whoever wrote this script
Si!
I was floating 'neath a tropic moon
And dreaming of a blue lagoon
Now I'm crazy as a loon
Cabin fever has ravaged all aboard
This once proud vessel has become a floating psycho ward

We were sailing, sailing headed who knows where
And now though we're all here
We're not all there Cabin fever!

Love Led Us Here
Was I dumb or was I blind
Or did my heart just lose it's mind
Why'd I go and throw our perfect dream away
Looking back I'll never know
How I ever let you go
But destiny could see we deserved to have another chance
Love led us here
Right back to where we belong
We followed a star
And here we are
Now heaven seems so near
Love led us here
Now I know life can take you by surprise
And sweep you off your feet
Did this happen to us or are we just dreaming
Love led us here
Right back to where we belong
We followed a star
And here we are
Now heaven seems so near
Love led us here
So take my hand
And have no fear
We'll be all right
Love led us here
