Lyrics - A Pirate Says "Arrr"

This is one of the songs on the Backyardigans CD.

A Pirate Says "Arrr"

If you want to be a pirate,
Get up on your feet.
You can't be a pirate,
If you're sitting in your seat.
Swing your arms tough,
And stand kind of low,
And make this noise wherever you go.

Arrr! Arrr! Arrr!
A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says "Arrr!"
It might seem strange, just a bit bizarre,
But they know you're a pirate,
When they hear you say "Arrr!"

Arrr! Arrr! Arrr!
A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says "Arrr!"
You wear a spare part, a bandana and a scar,
and they know you're a pirate,
When they hear you say "Arrr!"

The Jolly Roger is the pirate flag,
A skull and some bones on a big black rag.
We'll fly it on our ship, up above the sails,
And we'll search for treasure,
And be tough as nails!

Arrr! Arrr! Arrr!
A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says "Arrr!"
If you think we're noisy, you're right, we are,
'cause they know you're a pirate,
When they hear you say "Arrr!"

    I can't believe there are other "girls" over the age of 20 who love this song! I am 29 and my son is 19 mos. and he sometimes watches this show (tho it isn't his favorite, sorry to say..it's DORA for him!) and I heard the Pirate says ARR! song hin passing one day and I said to myself...that is a GREAT song! and then the other day the show was on and I heard it again and decided to download it but when I was singing it to my son to make him laugh I couldn't figure out all of the words!! I finally found them on your webpage! THANKS SO MUCH!!! I am so glad I am NOT completely crazy in loving this song! ERICA

  4. My wife is in a production of Pirate's of Penzance, so we were compiling a cd of sea chanties and pirate songs to give to the cast at the cast party. After surfing and listening to tons of these manly man songs, I listened to this one and just about fell off my chair laughing. It's now the last song on the cd.

    Not having kids, I've never heard of the Backyardigans, but the kid that sings that song is pretty talented. Thanks for providing the lyrics as Icouldn't quite catch them all!
