The Pirate's Gospel

Album: The Pirate's Gospel (2004)
  • While some folks row way up to heaven
    I'm gonna sing the pirate's gospel
    I'm gonna sow these feet for dancin'
    I'm gonna keep my eyes wide open (oh oh oh, mmm)

    Yo ho yo ho
    Yo ho ho
    Yo ho yo ho ho
    Yo ho ho
    Sing the pirate's gospel

    Add another flame
    To our forest
    Where big bellied whales
    Keep us chanting
    We're slapping fireflies
    For tiny dancers
    Weepy children creep
    Until the morning
    When the sun does seep
    Into our fair flesh
    Until the fingernails
    Will take us home (oh oh oh, mmm)

    Yo ho yo ho
    Yo ho ho
    Yo ho yo ho ho
    Yo ho ho
    Sing the pirate's gospel

    While some folks pray
    Their path to Jesus
    We're gonna sing
    The pirate's gospel
    We're gonna sow
    Our feet for dancing
    We're gonna keep
    Our eyes wide open
    We're gonna sing
    The pirate's gospel
    We're gonna chant
    The pirate's gospel
    You'll find us clap
    The pirate's gospel (oh oh oh, mmm)

    Yo ho yo ho
    Yo ho ho
    Yo ho yo ho ho
    Yo ho ho
    Sing the pirate's gospel
