lyrics

Hey, Dan! What’s the matter?
Oh, Mike, I can’t tell the difference between a pirate and a parrot.
Really? You can’t tell the difference at all?
Well, it’s a good thing I wrote this song about it!
Oh, I got feathers and a beak
Are you singing about a parrot?
I flap my wings and sometimes speak
Are you singing about a parrot?
Tell me have you ever heard what’s a pirate’s favorite bird?
Are you singing about a parrot?

I got a patch right o’er my eye
Are you singing about a pirate?
I search for treasure far and wide
Are you singing about a pirate?
Bravely sail the seven seas
There’s no one out there mean as me
Are you singing about a pirate?

I’ve got wings
You’re a parrot
Peg leg
You’re a pirate
My name’s Polly
You’re a parrot
My names Guybrush Threepwood
Pirate!

Oh, shiver me timbers and yo ho ho
Are you singing about a pirate?
Squawk uh oh uh oh
Are you singing about a parrot?
Pirate or parrot if you just can’t tell, take a big whiff and determine by the smell
Pirate or parrot?
Pirate or parrot?
Pirate or parrot?
