Sure and one day some one asked him how he lost all his parts. Well he heaved a great sigh and then this story he starts. We attacked a Spanish galleon on a dark, moonless night. I was climbin' up a grapple to get into the fight. Someone reached out from a port hole and he hacked off me leg. But they patched me up right smart and they gave me this peg. That's how I lost it. I think they tossed it Over the side and into the sea. I didn't mind it, but if you find it, Do me a favor, just let it be. Well, the next one was a merchant on a cold blustery day. I was climbin' up a grapple to get into the fray. Someone reached out from a port hole and me left hand he took. But they patched me right smart and they gave me this hook. That's how I lost it. I think they tossed it Over the side and into the sea. I didn't mind it, but if you find it, Do me a favor, just let it be. First a leg and then a hand, arrr. Curse the luck, said the crew. But to also loose and eye, man, well we curse that luck too! How'd you loose it? In a battle? In a terrible gale? Well, the pirate he glowered then went on with his tale. I was lying on the fore deck tryin' to catch me some sun, When a sea gull drifted over and his business he done. I was happening to look up then, having heard his loud cry. And the load he was dropping hit me square in the eye. Kinda gross now,said the boson, but it ain't all that bad. And it surely ain't enough to make you lose your eye lad. Oh ya think so, roared the pirate, It's enough, yes, and more If you just got your hook done on the evening before. That's how I lost me leg and that's how I got this hook 'n if you hear sea gulls callin' Mark my word, don't you look! © 2009 Tip- As with all the songs posted here, you can hear more bass with earphones or better speakers.
