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

I was sittin in meh yard

Watchin dem people ah go by

A woman run up to meh wit mad in she eye

She say you! You show meh di way

Meh say look around yuh nah from here di way is di same

She say nah meh have no muddah and no faddah
