|Contents:||Pour, oh pour the pirate sherry --
When Fred'ric was a little lad --
Oh, better far to live and die --
Oh, false one, you have deceived me --
Climbing over rocky mountain --
Stop! ladies, pray! A man! --
Oh, is there not one maiden breast --
Oh, sisters, deaf to pity's name, for shame! --
Poor wand'ring one! --
What ought we to do, Gentle sisters, say? --
How beautifully blue the sky --
Stay, we must not lose our senses --
Hold, monsters! --
I am the very model of a modern Major-General --
Oh, men of dark and dismal fate --
Hail poetry, thou heav'n born maid! --
You may go, for you're at liberty --
Pray observe the magnanimity --
Oh, dry the glist'ning tear --
Then Frederic --
When the foeman bares his steel --
Now for the pirates lair! --
When you had left our pirate fold --
Away, away, my heart's on fire --
All is prepared. Stay, Fred'ric stay! --
Ah, leave me not to pine alone and desolate --
Oh, here is love and here is truth --
No, I'll be brave --
Sergeant approach --
When a felon's not engaged in his employment --
A rollicking band of pirates we --
With a cat-like tread --
Hush! Hush! Not a word --
Sighing softly to the river --
Now what is this, and what is that --
We triumph now --
Away with them, and place them at the bar --
Poor wand'ring ones, though ye have surely strayed.
