Jim's Note: Nothing too deep and meaningful about this one! Clearly it is meant as a bit of fun on my part, and hopefully a bit of fun for kids as well.

Make The Cowards Run
© 2000, Jim Lesses. All Rights Reserved.

Iím a daring deep sea pirate, boys, and thatís why I donít care,
I pick my nose and burp a lot, and never brush my hair!
Sometimes when Iíve been drinking, a lemon squash or two,
I order triple orange juice, and drink it from my shoe!

CHORUS
So come along me hearties,
Iíll show you all some fun,
On the ocean wide, weíll sail with pride, 
And make the cowards run.

One day we captured women, boys, and we put them in the hold,
And I very nearly kissed one, but I guess Iím not that bold.
So I asked her for to marry me, and of course she answered, No!
Then her mother gave me such a whack, that I had to let her go.

CHORUS

One day we took to fighting, boys, with a boat out on the tide,
It was full of weak land lubbers, so we threw them oíer the side.
As we watched them swimming for the beach Ė it was a sight to see,
A crocodile came swimming by and chased them up a tree.

CHORUS

One day we caught a whale fish, boys, with a rope around his tail,
And he pulled us through the water, boys, so fast he ripped the sail.
Just when we thought we had him, he started to go down,
So I cut the rope, cause Iím no dope, and I didnít want to drown!

CHORUS

So now youíve heard my ditty, boys, and girls you heard it too,
Iím leaving on the morning tide, thereís nothing left to do.
So come and join my pirate crew, and sail the raging main,
Weíll see a thousand wonders, and then come back home again. 

So come along me hearties,
Iíll show you all some fun,
On the ocean wide, weíll sail with pride, 
And make the cowards run.
On the ocean wide, weíll sail with pride, 
And make the cowards run.
