Hoist the Colours! It's National Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Captain Hook
Captain Hector Barbossa
Jack Sparrow & Davy Jones

Arghh ye scurvy rats listening? It's that time o' year again. Here's a few scenes from one of the best movies of all times (Pirates of the Caribbean) and it's totally arghhwesome "Hoist the Colours" song.

The king and his men,
Stole the Queen from her bed,
And bound her in her Bones,
The seas be ours,
And by the powers,
Where we will, we'll roam.

Yo Ho, haul together,
Hoist the colours high,
Heave Ho, Thieves and Beggars,
Never Shall We Die!

Some men have died,
And some are alive,
And others sail on the sea,
With the keys to the cage...
And the Devil to pay,
We lay to Fiddler's Green!

The Bell has been raised,
From it's watery grave...
Do you hear it's sepulchral tone?
We are a call to all,
Pay heed the squall,
And turn your sail toward home!

Yo Ho haul, together,
Hoist the colours high
Heave Ho, Thieves and Beggars,
Never Shall We Die!

Arrr you ready for more pirate anthems?

What I always wondered was why pirates carried knives in their teeth. I'll bet they ran with scissors too...
