BEWARE OF THE OYSTER PIRATES
© Bob Wright
(Heave-ho-heave...
heave-ho-heave...

Beware of the oyster pirates
And their rowdy barefoot ways
They’re out in might when the evening light
Sneaks across the bay
Their teeth are sharp as barnacles
Their toes squish in the mud
They take their time when the tide is right
‘Cause oysters doesn’t run

Beware of the oyster pirates
With their briny sacks of loot
They pile them high and guard them tight
With their oyster pirate crews

Whose... teeth are sharp as barnacles
Their toes squish in the mud
They take their time when the tide is right
‘Cause oysters doesn’t run

Beware of the oyster pirates
And their heavy handled knives
They use them well on oyster shells
And they gobble what’s inside


Their teeth are sharp as barnacles
Their toes squish in the mud
They take their time when the tide is right
‘Cause oysters doesn’t run

Beware of the oyster pirates
They never wear no shoes
They just annoys the oysters
And they get too tough for stew

Their teeth are sharp as barnacles
Their toes squish in the mud
They take their time when the tide is right
‘Cause oysters doesn’t run

So…
if you see an oyster pirate
Don’t sing out yo ho ho
They don’t like noise when they’re at the oars
Of their oyster pirate boats


And… their teeth are sharp as barnacles
Their toes squish in the mud
They take their time when the tide is right
‘Cause oysters doesn’t run

DEAD OYSTERS TELL NO TALES

They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
