G                                                D 
When I was just a lad looking for my true vocation  
B                 G                    F#m       D 
My father said "Now son, this choice deserves deliberation  
B                    Em                  D            G 
Though you could be a doctor or perhaps a financier  
C                G               D           G      B 
My boy why not consider a more challenging career"  


Em D Em 
Hey ho ho  
         Em       D/F#      G 
You'll cruise to foreign shores  
G                             D 
And you'll keep your mind and body sound  
   C        D    G 
By working out of doors  
A    Am                                Em 
True friendship and adventure are what we can't live without  
Em  Am   Bm       C           
And when you're a professional pirate  
        D               G     B 
That's what the job's about  


D/F# G                                          D 
Now take Sir Francis Drake, the Spanish all despise him  
B            G                 F#m         D 
But to the British he's a hero and they idolize him  
B                   Em               D         G 
It's how you look at buccaneers that makes them bad or good  
C               G             D      G         B 
And I see us as members of a noble brotherhood  

Em  D Em 
Hey ho ho  
Em     D/F#    G 
We're honorable men  
G                      D               C       D         G 
And before we lose our tempers we will always count to ten  
Am                               Em 
On occasion there may be someone you have to execute  
Em  Am   Bm       C   
But when you're a professional pirate  
D                        G              B 
You don't have to wear a suit..... what?  


I could have been a surgeon  
Esus4           Em 
I like taking things apart  
Bad Polly: I could have been a lawyer  
But I just had too much heart 
G                    Am 
I could have been in politics  
Bm                           C 
Cause I've always been a big spender  
And me... 
D                     Am       Em  B 
I could have been a contender 


G                                         D 
Some say that pirates steal and should be feared and hated  
B                    G               F#m          D 
I say we're victims of bad press it's all exaggerated  
B                         Em           D            G 
We'd never stab you in the back, we'd never lie or cheat  
C                     G                D              G       B 
We're just about the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet

Em D Em 
Hey ho ho  
     Em   D/F#    G 
It's one for all for one  
           G               D                  C              G 
And we'll share and share alike with you and love you like a son  
A     Am                                   Em 
We're gentlemen of fortune and that's what we're proud to be  
Em   Am     Bm    C 
And when your a professional pirate  

You'll be honest brave and free  
The soul of decency  
You'll be loyal and fair and on the square  
And most importantly  
Em   Am     Bm    C 
When you're a professional pirate  
D       C                G 
You're always in the best of company  
D  G
