The Pirate's Gospel

While some folks row way up to heaven
I'm gonna sing the pirate's gospel
I'm gonna sow these feet for dancin'
I'm gonna keep my eyes wide open (oh oh oh, mmm)

Yo ho yo ho
Yo ho ho
Yo ho yo ho ho
Yo ho ho
Sing the pirate's gospel

Add another flame
To our forest
Where big bellied whales
Keep us chanting
We're slapping fireflies
For tiny dancers
Weepy children creep
Until the morning
When the sun does seep
Into our fair flesh
Until the fingernails
Will take us home (oh oh oh, mmm)

Yo ho yo ho
Yo ho ho
Yo ho yo ho ho
Yo ho ho
Sing the pirate's gospel

While some folks pray
Their path to Jesus
We're gonna sing
The pirate's gospel
We're gonna sow
Our feet for dancing
We're gonna keep
Our eyes wide open
We're gonna sing
The pirate's gospel
We're gonna chant
The pirate's gospel
You'll find us clap
The pirate's gospel (oh oh oh, mmm)

Yo ho yo ho
Yo ho ho
Yo ho yo ho ho
Yo ho ho
Sing the pirate's gospel
Sing the pirate's gospel
