Skippy Aye Yo - Lyrics

I'll sing ye a song of a wretched crew
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
The sorriest lot I ever knew
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Bringing naught but pain an shame
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
I be their captain still the same
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

Avast, avast, belay belay
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Ye evil beast, be gone, astray
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

An' Happy Tom don't like our song
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
His last known smile be years long gone
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Liking not our company
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
We left him driftin' in the sea
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

Avast, avast, belay belay
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Ye evil beast, be gone, astray
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

Major John not man nor maid
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Men both in bed and grave she's laid
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Try steal from her a kiss you wish
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
She'll gut you like a rotten fish
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

Avast, avast, belay belay
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Ye evil beast, be gone, astray
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

Tiernan sought for wealth 'n' fame
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
He joined our crew with a stolen name
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
But grew cold feet an' ran away
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Now he rots away near Botany Bay
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

Avast, avast, belay belay
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Ye evil beast, be gone, astray
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

Avast, avast, belay belay
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Ye evil beast, be gone, astray
Skippy aye skippy aye yo

Skippy aye skippy aye yo
Skippy aye skippy aye yo
