I Wish I Was a Pirate

Lyrics

Watching the waves rolling over the sand
Telling stories about men who sailed the seas
It’s been a long time ago
Since those sailors called her their home
These men were pirates
Though they say their gone, they still live on in my heart

All along the light house
There’s been many a shipwreck
With Captain Hook and Long John Silver, John Lafoote
Well shiver me timbers, I wish I was a pirate too

Every since I was a young man
Spent my time around the old sea
From the islands to the capes
Down the coast all the way to Ocracoke
Dreamed of sailing as they did
Never knowin’ where I was going, only where I’ve been

All along the light house
There’s been many a shipwreck
With Captain Hook and Long John Silver, John Lafoote
Well shiver me timbers, I wish I was a pirate too

Trimming my sails on a course through time
Sometimes it’s a wasteful life we lead
Searching for the answers
To the questions of our lives
Like a pirate I sail on
Just let the wind blow and the stars will guide me away

All along the light house
There’s been many a shipwreck
With Captain Hook and Long John Silver, John Lafoote
Well shiver me timbers, I wish I was a pirate too
