Lyrics

Do what you want 'cause a pirate lives free
You are a pirate!

Yar har, fiddle-dee-dee!
Being a pirate is alright with me
Do what you want 'cause a pirate lives free
You are a pirate!
You are a pirate!
(Yay!)

We got us a map
(A map!)
To lead us to a hidden box
That's all locked up with locks!
(With locks!)
And buried deep away

We'll dig up the box
(The box!)
We know it's full of precious booty
Burst open the locks
And then we'll say hooray!

Yar har, fiddle-dee-dee
If you love to sail the sea
You are a pirate!

Weigh anchor!

Yar har, fiddle-dee-dee!
Being a pirate is alright with me
Do what you want 'cause a pirate lives free
You are a pirate!

Arr yar, hoy and avast
Diggity dirt and diggity fast!
Hang that black flag at the end of the mast!
You are a pirate!

(Ha ha ha ha!)
We're sailing away
(Set sail!)
Adventure awaits on very shore
We set sail and explore
(Yar har!)
And run and jump all day
(Yay!)

We float on our boat
(The boat!)
Until it's time to drop the anchor
Then hang up our coats
(Aye aye!)
Until we sail again!

Yar har, fiddle-dee-dee
(Ah ha ha ha ha ha!)
If you love to sail the sea
You are a pirate!

(Hiya!)
Hey, woah!

Land ho!

Yar har, fiddle-dee-dee!
Being a pirate is alright with me
Do what you want 'cause a pirate lives free
You are a pirate!

Yar har!
Wind at your backs lads, wherever you go!

Blue sky above and blue ocean below
You are a pirate!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
(You are a pirate!)
You are a pirate
Heh he he

Trivia

  • From 2004 onwards, You Are a Pirate gained internet notoriety and has been parodied in various ways over the years.
    • Likely as a result of this, the song was one of Alestrom's most popular cover requests, along with "Drunken Sailor" and "Dead Man's Chest".
