Alestorm – Pirate’s Scorn Lyrics

Arr! [Chorus]
I’ll make you swab the deck and then I’ll throw you in the brig! I swear I’ll make you walk the plank to right the wrong you did! [Chorus]
I’ll make you swab the deck and then I’ll throw you in the brig! [Verse 1]
Arr, when I was a young lad, my father said to me
“Arr, lend an ear and learn some pirate history! Once a fearsome pirate ruled the seven seas
He was your great-great-great-grand-pappy, Quint Skurvy!”
He told me tall tales of his ill-begotten gains
But the greatest treasure of them all still haunts me to this day! I swear I’ll make you walk the plank to right the wrong you did! The day you mess with Skurvy, arr, you’ll wish you were never born! It laid upon the ground until, much to my surprise
A stupid ape just wandered by and snatched my treasured prize! When the coconut is mine, then you’ll feel this pirate’s scorn! The day you mess with Skurvy, arr, you’ll wish you were never born! [Verse 2]
He hid it in an idol where it stayed for many years
But the eye of Inka Dinka Doo did shed the crystal tear! When the coconut is mine, then you’ll feel this pirate’s scorn! When the coconut is mine, then you’ll feel this pirate’s scorn! He discovered it possessed extraordinary power
And stealing it from Skurvy would be his darkest hour!
