Lyrics:
KING:     Oh, better far to live and die
          Under the brave black flag I fly,
          Than play a sanctimonious part
          With a pirate head and a pirate heart.
          Away to the cheating world go you,
          Where pirates all are well-to-do;
          But I'll be true to the song I sing,
          And live and die a Pirate King.
               For I am a Pirate King!
          And it is, it is a glorious thing
          To be a Pirate King!
               For I am a Pirate King!
ALL:                You are!
          Hurrah for the Pirate King!
KING:     And it is, it is a glorious thing
          To be a Pirate King.
ALL:                It is!
          Hurrah for the Pirate King!
          Hurrah for the Pirate King!
KING:     When I sally forth to seek my prey
          I help myself in a royal way.
          I sink a few more ships, it's true,
          Than a well-bred monarch ought to do;
          But many a king on a first-class throne,
          If he wants to call his crown his own,
          Must manage somehow to get through
          More dirty work than e'er I do,
               For I am a Pirate King!
          And it is, it is a glorious thing
          To be a Pirate King!
               For I am a Pirate King!
ALL:                You are!
          Hurrah for the Pirate King!
KING:     And it is, it is a glorious thing
          To be a Pirate King.
ALL:                It is!
          Hurrah for the Pirate King!
          Hurrah for the Pirate King!
