Pirate’s Alley

Pirate’s Alley you call to me

Lurking in the shadows thieves of old stand ready to rob the ill prepared soul

I adjust meh beret and quick step with dagger in hand

You called me

I was content to swimming in the depths of the Bayou

Content with keeping I mysteries

But you called me to see these men who boasted to have known my treasure

To drink with them and listen to the stories of how only I had made them merry

So I arose

Under the moon’s shine and bid my tail a temporary goodbye to revel in glory with thee

Oh Pirate’s Alley

How theif man a thief a treasure so pure that he would be sure that he had known I

Coming through the entry way

Who be these men of new and old to have joy down this narrow road

Oh Pirate’s Alley to thee I come
