Lyrics[]

Pirate Crew: Ohhhh!
A pirate's life is a wonderful life
A-rovin' over the sea
Give me a career as a buccaneer
As the life of a pirate for me
Ohhhh!
The life of a pirate for me

Ohhhh!
A pirate's life is a wonderful life
They never bury your bones
For when it's all over, a jolly sea rover
Drops in on his friend Davy Jones
Ohhhh!
His very good friend Davy Jones
(Mr. Smee: My good friend Davy Jones)

Skylights: Ohh, a pirate's life is a wonderful life
You'll find adventure and sport
But live every minute for all that is in it
The life of a pirate is short (last note is held)
Ohh, the life... (last note is held and Skylights gets shot by Hook before he can continue singing)

Pirate Crew: Ohh, a pirate's life is a wonderful life
A-rovin' over the sea
Give me a career as a buccaneer
It's the life of a pirate for me
Ohh, the life of a pirate for me

Ohh, a pirate's life is a wonderful life
Without a care to behold
You dig for pleasure to find some treasure
Your pockets are loaded with gold
Ohh, your pockets are loaded with gold

Ohh, a pirate's life is a wonderful life
You'll find adventure and sport
But live every minute for all that is in it
The life of a pirate is short
Ohh, the life of a pirate is short

Ohh, a pirate's life is a wonderful life
"But not forever," they say
When your neck's in a noose and you can't get loose
For the life of a pirate you'll pay
Ohh, for the life of a pirate you'll pay
