He’s sailed around the seven seas
with plumed hat, sword and swagger
he’s crossed the oceans, plumbed the depths
in search of golden treasure.
Hail me hearties, brave and true
he stands with dagger raised
as maidens swoon and young men cheer
he doffs his hat to all.
Now stranded on a distant shore
on an island far away
the last man of his crew alive
he scans the seas each day.
But finally, a ship appears
the Captain’s surely saved
with heaps of gold and strings of pearls
there’s much he has to offer.
Once more he sails across the seas
with plumed hat, sword and dagger
and rues the day he set a course
for Blackbeard’s Isle of Treasure.
