"The End of My Pirate Days" - Mary Chapin Carpenter

"A pirate I was meant to be, trim the sails and roam the sea..."

Warren Zevon - Mutineer

Sailed the oceans blue and wide
Searching for the perfect lass
Plundered and pillaged all the way,
Until I tapped your ass

Finer than silk, brighter than gold
That you were to me
Swore to stop killin' and robbery
Turned my back upon the sea

Ne'ertheless I hit the shoals
Eaten by sharks I could not see
When you stole my gold and fucked the cabin boy
Left me with a note and V.D.!


Pirate Radio - Mojo Nixon

Sad when the first one that pops to mind is from "Between the Lions"--"It's Great to be a Pirate."

Also, "Lady is a Pirate" by Megan Slankard

Can you post the Pirates songs for download? I must hear Pirates that Don't do Anything!

The best pirate love song is called "Pirate Ship" by Sampo. Download it here.

"Return to Pirates" by Mary Timony.

"Lincoln Park Pirates" - Steve Goodman

A song about the towing company that used to plauge Chicago in the 70s.

"For it's weigh-hey, haul 'em away
The Lincoln Park Pirates are we.
Be it Edsel or Chevy, there's none that's to heavy, and we always collect our fee."

One of my favorite tunes is "Let Me Be Your Pirate" by Nena (the 99 Luftballons chick; it's on the same album).

"Barrett's Privateers" by Stan Rogers.

Best Pirate song: Seven Deadly Sins, by Flogging Molly

"We´re seven drunken pirates, we´re the seven deadly sins"

"And I don't need no pilot, I've got a pirate who might sail...."

- Rickie Lee Jones
