[Intro]
Gm Gm Bb Bb Eb Eb D D


[Verse]
Gm Gm Bb Bb
Let me begin with a hearty ho ho
Eb Eb Bb Bb
And a tale that nobody tells well
Gm Gm Bb Bb
I've not come all the way from En-C-I-N-O
Eb Eb D D
To be treated like sewage that smells

Eb Eb Bb Bb
I'm certainly not that surprised
D D F F Eb Eb
For this story is older than time
F F F F
Me peglegged pirating brethren and I
F F F F F F
Are society's slug-ridden slime


[Verse]
Gm Gm Bb Bb
We've all been cast out as scallywag rogues
Eb Eb Bb Bb
With fire in our beards and our eyes
Gm Gm Bb Bb
There's a side to us pirates that nobody knows
Eb Eb D D
And it's soft as a baby's backside

Eb Eb Bb Bb
Some of us just want adventures
D D F F Eb Eb
The open-sea wind in our earrings
F F F F
Why are we constantly misunderstood
F F F F F F
Don't you know pirates have feelings


[Chorus]
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
F F Gm Gm
Poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
Eb Eb Bb Bb F F
Poor pirates can't deny this simple truth
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
Poor pirates, P - O - O - ARR
Gm Gm Gm Gm
People too (too, too, too)
Gm Gm D D Gm Gm
Nice harmonies, mateys!


[Verse]
Gm Gm Bb Bb
Think of how harrrd we have had it (so hard)
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Out on ships there is not much to eat (not much to eat)
Gm Gm Bb Bb
And dentists hate pirate insurance (yo ho no)
Eb Eb D D
Which is why we've so many gold teeth (We've too many gold teeth)

Eb Eb Bb Bb
Me laundry stays damp and me boots start to stink
D D F F Eb Eb
And me fingernails filthy and dirty
F F F F
Me internet loads unbelievably slow
F F F F F F
And me bedtime's around 7:30


[Chorus]
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
F F Gm Gm
Poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
Eb Eb Bb Bb F F
Poor pirates can't deny this simple truth
Eb Eb Bb Bb
We're poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
F F Gm Gm
Poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
Poor pirates have it so much worse than you


[Bridge]
Eb Eb Bb Bb
We've got pirate parades to which nobody comes
F F Gm Gm
Captain Kidd hosts a marathon but nobody runs
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Long John Silver invented the bloomin' onion
D D
But you think he gets credit for that? (NO!)

Eb Eb Bb Bb
Captain... um... no one knows his first name
F F Gm Gm
And old Greenbeard's been driven completely insane
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Hardly anyone celebrates our one holiday
D D
Arr... Talk Like a Pirate Day!


[Chorus]
Eb Eb Bb Bb
We're poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
F F Gm Gm
Poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
Eb Eb Bb Bb F F
Poor pirates can't deny this simple truth
(Can't deny that we're poor, poor )
Eb Eb Bb Bb
Pirates, P-O-O-ARR
F F Gm Gm
Poor pirates, P-O-O-ARR
Eb Eb Bb Bb F F
Poor pirates can't deny this simple truth
Eb Eb Bb Bb D D
That pirates, P - O - O - ARR
Gm Gm D D Gm Gm
People too Yo ho!
