about

Maybe ye don't have one father, but a hundred fathers.

lyrics

I were born with a pistol and a cutlass in me grip
I were raised by me mother, for me father had jumped ship
But me mum had many suitors who taught me of the trade
Thanks t’ them all together I’m this pirate they have made
They were bastards on the ocean, and masters of the sea

I’m a seaman to the core, a bloody troubadour, I’m the SON OF A WHORE!
I’m the Son of A Hundred Pirates
Seaman to the core, a bloody troubadour, I’m the SON OF A WHORE!
I’m the Son of A Hundred Pirates

They say ‘tis a shame that this boy’s father is not known
And he ain’t got no foundation, and no guidance in his home
But me values they be sterling, and good fortune has come to pass
‘Cause five score of proud sailors have come t’ be my dads
They were bastards on the ocean, and masters of the sea

I’m a seaman to the core, a bloody troubadour, I’m the SON OF A WHORE!
I’m the Son of A Hundred Pirates
Seaman to the core, a bloody troubadour, I’m the SON OF A WHORE!
I’m the Son of A Hundred Pirates

Me mother, what a good heart she had…
‘Tis no shame, nor disgrace I’m her lad…
Time were tough, alas and alack…
She made ends meet, layin’ flat on her back

I were born with a pistol and a cutlass in me grip
I were raised by me mother, an now I captain a ship
Each caller added somethin’, and I’m proud of who I be
I’m a bastard on the ocean, and a master of the sea

I’m a seaman to the core…
A bloody troubadour…
I’m the son of, a whore…
I’m the son of a whore

…And the SON OF A HUNDRED PIRATES!
