None Shall Pass
The Harbor Is Yours
Once upon a time in the days of yore.
When the people lived fresh out of legend and folk lore
There was an old pirate who followed a vile slang
Had a bird perched on him, Swashbuckler his name.
Peg leg navigated starboard to port
By the nautical sign of night and the harbor is yours.
You should tell him â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦your gold.
That is unless he locked in altercation with Davey J-J-J-Jones.
Like walk plank, mmmm the shark tank.
Maroon the millionaires. Consume the souvenirs.
And while the shiny spoils pile higher every year
He was suffocating slow in the box of a buccaneer.
Ten summers prior on a night like this
Crows nest saw something and pointed the boats west.
Sword blew him a kiss. And when he focused seen the face of an
Angel upon the body of a F-F-F-Fish.
What the heck! Frazzled. His telescope shattered. Gathered himself.
She was ghost. He was down the rope ladder to deck.
Circled the vessel 360 swiftly.
Found nothing in the water but salt, piss, and whiskey.
YAR, Heckled by the Swabies at the bar.
Heâ€™ll be the laughing stock of the Barbary Coast War.
Like â€œThis dude either got two glass eyes,
Or heâ€™s wearinâ€™ his patch on the wrong S-S-S-Side."
Now he knew what he saw, had to prove he was raw
So he raped and he pillaged and heâ€™d feud any brawl.
Tried to rekindle his rep using sabers and gun smoke
And thatâ€™s always fine though he never told his cutthroats.
Meanwhile, back in the now,
Got a brand new skeleton crew on the mount now
â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦Cannon, stern, and bow
They are pouring shiny metals out your M-M-M-Mouth.
Okay,â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦â€¦..and disease like the scurvy made his yellow gums bleed.
And he was achy from his boots to the feather in his hat
â€˜Till his quartermaster showed up with a stolen treasure map.
One look down and leaped off the dock.
See if you can guess where X marked the spot.
The capital was buried inâ€¦â€¦â€¦.cursed cave
Only one mile away he seen the M-M-M-Mermaid.
Anchors up, push the jolly roger way too much
Day and night with his hook hands raised and clutched.
But see, the vitamin deficiency was strong
So by the time they broke into the island they could barely lift his brawn.
Crawled off the boat, collapsed in the sand
Prayers in the air, seashells in his hands
And nary a high time so grand
As the one that put the lady of the lake on dry L-L-L-Land
And I wish I could tell you that it ended happy
Pretend like his bones werenâ€™t practically snapping.
Pretend like her gills didnâ€™t dry up in suffering.
Thereâ€™s a half dead pirate and a fish out of water.
No lie, scouts honor, got a million more
From the burgundy lighting up from the shores of whores.
You got visions of grandeur, better slow those sails
Remember dead men tell no T-T-T-Tales.
Dead men tell no tales just
Push the daisies â€˜till the soil is stale.
Mister big sleep with the carp and kale.
