I feel a little piratey
Thank God I know my “Rs”
Swagger around with rum in hand
No need to go to bars

Both my eyes work just fine
But I like to wear the patch
And I enjoy my pretend hook
Good for a hard to reach scratch

My students call me Captain
If they don’t they walk those planks
I tell them, “Rrrr, go do your work
And you’ll be getting’ no thanks.”

They often look at me quite strange
Don’t understand their problem
“Stop it now you scurvy kids, or
Your grades’ll be on the bottom.”

“So let me here a Garr and Rrr”
No better crew’ve I seen
Piratin’s a way of life
Not just for Halloween
