Yon's my Privateer
To every man a lucky hand
I live to ride the Ocean
To take a little plunder

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!
The people on your Man 'o war
I'm no flogging Captain
Come with me to Barbary
Not quite exactly

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!
Look here there's my Privateer
Licensed to take prizes
I love the streets and taverns
Tip my hat to the dark eyed ladies

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!
Britannia needs her Privateers
Death to all her enemies
Come with me to Barbary
Not quite exactly

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!Yon's my Privateer
To every man a lucky hand
I live to ride the Ocean
To take a little plunder

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!
The people on your Man 'o war
I'm no flogging Captain
Come with me to Barbary
Not quite exactly

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!
Look here there's my Privateer
Licensed to take prizes
I love the streets and taverns
Tip my hat to the dark eyed ladies

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!
Britannia needs her Privateers
Death to all her enemies
Come with me to Barbary
Not quite exactly

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!Yon's my Privateer
To every man a lucky hand

To drink Madeira wine
On a shore that isn't mine
