Muppets - A Professional Pirate

[LONG JOHN]
When I was just a lad looking for my true vocation
My father said “Now son, this choice deserves deliberation
Though you could be a doctor or perhaps a financier
My boy, why not consider a more challenging career?”

[PIRATES]
Hey ho ho!
You’ll cruise to foreign shores
And you’ll keep your mind and body sound
By working out of doors

[LONG JOHN]
True friendship and adventure are what we can’t live without

[PIRATES]
And when you’re a professional pirate

[POLLY]
That’s what the job’s about

[LONG JOHN]
(spoken)
Upstage, lads. This is my only number

(sung)
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
