The Skull and Butterfl-eye
Yo-ho. Yo-ho. A pirate’s life for me.
Wait a minute, Matey. Yer ain’t no pirate.
Whad’ya mean, ye barnacle-crusted turnip of a limp sea-turtle.
Why, where’s yer skull and bones? Ye sham land-lubbin’ liar.
Ain’t got no skull and bones, ye crumb bucket son-of-a-low-tide.
Then ye ain’t no pirate, ye scurvy linked pondsucker
Yer hoid of Jack Sparrow, ain’t ye?
Everyone‘s hoid of Jack Sparrow, ye fool-arsed freeboater.
Well, he had a skull and sparrow, ye numb-skulled bird-droppin’ old corsair.
Gaw on. Yer tawkin’ through yer empty-headed hat now.
Long John Silver, he had a skull and a bar of silver.
Black Beard had a skull with a black beard. Ye plank-walkin’ wind-bag.
And if so, then so whit’s yer point, ye half-crazed bloated whale.
I’ve got the skull and butterfl-eye.
And so, what’s that make you?
Cap’n Chrys Alis.
