Who sailed all the way to the snow

All his jackets were sold
That dumb old pirate named Joe

He had a bird that pecks,
He fired his gun,
And had a lot of fun,
That silly old pirate named Rex.

All day he’d sleep in bed,
His cat was fat,
His dog just sat,
That lazy and lonely Ted

Until he got hit over the head
Then they shot him dead
That silly old pirate named Franklin

And he was always busy
He fell off the ship
And broke his hip

And swayed his hips
That silly old pirate called Harry.
