Beskrivning av en professionell pirat?

Posted by björn on

Så jag hamnade lite hux-flux på Youtube och tittade på olika videos med mupparna och upp kom A Professional Pirate från Muppet Treasure Island, texten tycker jag passar riktigt bra in de pirater jag känner. :)

Några textstycken:

Long John: True friendship and adventure are what we can’t live without
All: And when you’re a professional pirate
Bad Polly: That’s what the job’s about
Long John: “Upstage, lads, this is my ONLY number!”
Now take Sir Francis Drake, the Spanish all despise him
But to the British he’s a hero and they idolize him
It’s how you look at buccaneers that makes them bad or good
And I see us as members of a noble brotherhood
Pirates: Hey ho ho
We’re honorable men
And before we lose our tempers we will always count to ten


Long John: Some say that pirates steal and should be feared and hated
I say we’re victims of bad press it’s all exaggerated
We’d never stab you in the back, we’d never lie or cheat
We’re just about the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet


All: Hey ho ho
It’s one for all for one
And we’ll share and share alike with you and love you like a son
We’re gentlemen of fortune and that’s what we’re proud to be
And when your a professional pirate
Long John: You’ll be honest brave and free
The soul of decency
You’ll be loyal and fair and on the square
And most importantly
All: When you’re a professional pirate
You’re always in the best of company
