Shiver My Timbers
Pirates & Animals

Pirates
Shiver my timbers
shiver my soul
Yo oh, heave ho
There are men whose hearts
are as black as coal
Yo oh, heave ho

Crabs
And they sailed their ship 'cross the ocean blue
A blood thirsty captain and a cut throat crew

Alligators
It's as dark a tale as was ever told
Of the lust for treasure and the love of gold

Pirates
Shiver my timbers
shiver my sides
Yo oh, heave ho
There are hungers as strong
as the wind and tides
Yo oh, heave ho

Possums
And those buccaneers drown their sins in rum

Monkey
The devil himself would have to call them scum

Crabs
Every man aboard would have killed his mate
For a bag of guineas or a piece of eight

Alligators
A piece of eight

Octopus
A piece of eight

Mosquitoes
Five, six, seven, eight

Stone Faces
Hulla wacka, ulla wacka
something not right
Many wicked icky things
gonna happen tonight
Hulla wacka, ulla moolah
sailor man beware

Crabs
When de money in de ground
Dere's murder in de air

Totems
Murder in the air

Stone Faces
One more time now

Pirates
Shiver my timbers
shiver my bones
Yo oh, heave ho
There are secrets
that sleep with old Davy Jones
Yo oh, heave ho

Snakes
When the mainsails set and the anchors weighed
There's no turning back from any course that's laid

Skulls
And when greed and villainy sail the sea
You can bet your boots there'll be treachery

Pirates
Shiver my timbers
shiver my sails
Dead men tell no tales



There's Gotta Be Something Better
Jim, Gonzo & Rizzo

Jim
I look around here and I want to cry
I feel like the world is passing me by
And I just can't help but wonder
Am I doomed to wash and dry
And is it a curse I'm under
To do it till I die

When I could be an explorer
Sailing off to distant lands
'Stead of spending every afternoon
Just getting dishpan hands
My future looks like nowhere
that I want to be

All
There's got to be something better
Something better
There's got to be something better
Than this for me

Gonzo
If its weird and wild let's go and find it
Ha ha ha ha
The crazier the better is what I say

Rizzo
To tell the truth I really wouldn't mind it
If we found some place with ten square meals a day

All
Let danger call my name

Rizzo
If it does I'm gonna hide

Jim
I'll put my courage to the test

Gonzo
And I'll be by your side

Rizzo
He'll be by your side

Jim
There's gotta be something better than this
I know that there's so much out there to see
And I know this life I'm living
Can't be my destiny

All
There's got to be something better
Something better

Jim
There's got to be something better
Than this for me

All
There's something better than this
for you and me



Sailing For Adventure
Pirates, Gonzo & Rizzo

Pirates
When the course is laid and the anchors weighed
A sailor's blood begins racing
With our hearts unbound and our flag unfurled
We're under way and off to see the world
Under way and off to see the world

Everyone
Hey ho, we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing

Pirate
Manly men are we

Everyone
Sailing for adventure on the deep blue sea

Pirates
Danger walks the deck, we say what the heck
We laugh at the perils we're facing

Gonzo
Every storm we ride is its own reward

Rizzo
And people die by falling overboard

Pirates
People die by falling overboard

Everyone
Hey ho, we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Hoist the sails and sing

Fozzie
Sailing for adventure on the big, blue wet thing

Bad Polly
I love to see 'em cry when they walk the plank

Morgan
I prefer to cut a throat

Mad Monty
I love to hang 'em high and watch their little feet try
to walk in the air while their faces turn blue

Morgan
Just kidding

All Three
It's a good life on a boat

Pirates
There are distant lands with burning sands
That roll across the oceans

Rats
There are bingo games every fun filled day
And margaritas at the midnight buffet

Pirates
Margaritas at the midnight buffet

Everyone
Hey ho, we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing

Statler & Waldorf
Should have took a train

Everyone
Sailing for adventure on the bounding main

Jim
The salty breezes whisper
Who knows what lies ahead
I just know I was born to live the life my father lead

Long John Silver
The stars will be our compass
Wherever we may roam
And our mates will always be
Just like a family
And though we may put into port
the sea is always home

Pirates
We'll chase our dreams standing on our own
Over the horizon to the great unknown

Everyone
Hey ho, we'll go
Anywhere the wind is blowing
Bold and brave and free

Pirates
Sailing for adventure

Rizzo
It's so nauseating

Pirates
Sailing for adventure

Gonzo
So exhilarating

Pirates
Sailing for adventure

Rats
We're all celebrating!

Everyone
On the deep blue sea



Cabin Fever
Pirates

I got cabin fever
it's burning in my brain
I've got cabin fever
it's driving me insane
We got cabin fever
we're flipping our bandanas
Been stuck at sea so long that
we have simply gone bananas

Ah!
Chica, chica, boom
Chica, chica, boom, boom, chic
Arriba!
Chica, chica, boom
Chica, chica, boom, boom, chic

We, we, we got cabin fever
we've lost what sense we had
We got cabin fever
we're all going mad

Grab your partner by the ears
Lash him to the wheel
Do-si-do step on his toe
Listen to him squeal
Allemande left, allemande right
It's time to sail or sink
Swing your partner over the side
Drop him in the drink

We got cabin fever
No ifs, ands or buts
We're disoriented
And demented
And a little nuts

Ach du liebe Volkswagen car
Yodel-lay-ee-hoo
Sauerbraten wiener schnitzel
Und wunder bar
Yodel-lay-ee-hoo

We were sailing
sailing the wind was on our side
And then it died

I've got cabin fever
I think I've lost my grip
I'd like to get my hands on
Whoever wrote this script!
Si!

I was floating 'neath a tropic moon
And dreaming of a blue lagoon
Now I'm crazy as a loon

Cabin fever has ravaged all aboard
This once proud vessel 
has become a floating psycho ward
We were sailing, sailing
headed who knows where
And now though we're all here
We're not all there

Arriba!
Cabin fever!
Ahh!


A Professional Pirate
Long John Silver & Pirates

Long John Silver
When I was just a lad
looking for my true vocation
My father said now son
this choice deserves deliberation
Though you could be a doctor
or perhaps a financier
My boy, why not consider
a more challenging career?"

Pirates
Hey, ho, ho
You'll cruise to foreign shores
And you'll keep your mind and body sound
By working out of doors

Long John Silver
True friendship and adventure
are what we can't live without

Everyone
And when you're a professional pirate

Bad Polly
That's what the job's about

Long John Silver
(Upstage lads, this is my ONLY number!)

Now take Sir Francis Drake
the Spanish all despise him
But to the British he's a hero
and they idolize him
It's how you look at buccaneers
that makes them bad or good
And I see us as members
of a noble brotherhood

Pirates
Hey, ho, ho
We're honorable men
And before we lose our tempers
we will always count to ten

Long John Silver
On occasion, there may be someone
you have to execute

Everyone
But when you're a professional pirate

Morgan
You don't have to wear a suit

Mad Monty
I could have been a surgeon
I like taking things apart

Bad Polly
I could have been a lawyer
But I just had too much heart

Morgan
I could have been in politics
'Cause I've always been a big spender

Bald Pirate
And me...I cudda been a contender

Long John Silver
Some say that pirates steal 
and should be feared and hated
I say we're victims of bad press
it's all exaggerated
We'd never stab you in the back
we'd never lie or cheat
We're just about the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet

Everyone
Hey, ho, ho
It's one for all for one
And we'll share and share alike with you
And love you like a son
We're gentlemen of fortune
And that's what we're proud to be
And when you're a professional pirate

Long John Silver
You'll be honest brave and free
The soul of decency
You'll be loyal and fair and on the square
And most importantly

Everyone
When you're a professional pirate
You're always in the best of company



Love Led Us Here
Kermit & Miss Piggy

Kermit
Was I dumb
Or was I blind
Or did my heart
just lose it's mind

Why'd I go
And throw our perfect dream away

Miss Piggy
Looking back
I'll never know
How I ever let you go
But destiny could see
we deserved to have another day

Kermit & Miss Piggy
Love led us here
Right back to where we belong
We followed a star
and here we are
Now heaven seems so near
Love led us here

Kermit
Now I know that life can take you by surprise
And sweep you off your feet

Miss Piggy
Did this happen to us

Kermit & Miss Piggy
or are we just dreaming

Love led us here
Right back to where we belong
We followed a star
and here we are
Now heaven seems so near
Love led us here

Kermit
So take my hand

Miss Piggy
and have no fear

Kermit & Miss Piggy
We'll be alright
Love led us
here



Love Power
Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers

Love Power
A little love power
Stronger than the hurricane
And softer than the summer rain

Love Power
What kind of power
A little love power
It can lift you up
Lift you up when you get low
And make your life
bright as the rainbow

Whoa
There ain't no sun
in the morning sky
Breeze ain't blowing
and the bird don't fly

Then someone kind reaches out a hand
And smiles a warm sweet smile
And then your heart
come to understand

What make the world spin
Where the magic begin
Someone to believe in
Feel so good when everybody feels

Love Power
There's no higher power
A little love power
Nothing in the world
Stronger than the hurricane
And softer than the summer rain

Oh, love power
Everybody feel it
A little love power
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Lift you up when you get low
And make your life bright as the rainbow

Whoa
So many people they feel so bad
Yeah, they make the money
but they still so sad
Nobody told them that it ain't that stuff
That makes life worthwhile
'Cause even if you've got enough
You got less than nothing
till you know for certain

Enough to put your faith in
It feels so good when everybody feels
Love power
People, can you feel it
A little love power
Life you up when you get low
And make your life bright as the rainbow

Let me tell you now
Whoa
Feel the inspiration
Hey
Don't it feel like heaven
It make the soul and the spirit strong
When everybody come and every single one
They hear the song now

Oh, love power
A little love power
Stronger than the hurricane
And softer than the summer rain

Can you feel it, oh
Love power
What kind of power
A little love power

It can lift you up
Lift you up when you get low
And make your life bright as the rainbow

Lift you up when you get low
And make your life bright as the rainbow

John Berry
Was I dumb
Or was I blind
Or did my heart
just lose its mind
Why's I go
and throw our perfect dream away

Helen Darling
Oh, looking back
I'll never know
how I ever let you go
But destiny could see

Now heaven seems so near
Love led us here

John Berry
Love led us here

I confess, it's sad but true

Helen Darling
sad but true

John Berry
I lost myself when I lost you
But I held your memory
Through each lonely night

Helen Darling
Oh, let's forget
What's gone before

John Berry
what's gone

Helen Darling
Now we both know so much more

John Berry
so much more

Helen Darling
And we've been given another chance
To make it work out right

John Berry

Both
Love led us here
Right back to where we belong
We followed a star

Now heaven seems so near
Love led us here

John Berry
Now I know that life can take you by surprise
And sweep you off your feet

Both
Did this happen to us
Or are we just dreamin'
Dreamin'

We followed a star
and here we are
Now heaven seems so near
Love led us here

John Berry
So take my hand

Helen Darling
and have no fear

Both
We'll be alright
Love led us
