Blackbeard, Bluebeard and Redbeard (c) 2004 Words by Kenn Nesbitt with Eric Endres Music by Eric and Roseann Endres Dm Dm Am C Gm Blackbeard and Bluebeard and Redbeard, they say Bb C Am A Hijacked a ship and went sailing away Dm Am C Gm Seaward they scudded and skipped on the breeze Bb C Am Dm But couldn't find treasure to plunder and seize Dm And a pirate without treasure is like a monkey without a spatula... So Bluebeard said, "Since we've nothing to do Why don't we paint our new pirate ship blue? Blue for the poop deck. Blue for the sails Blue for the rudder, the riggings and the rails." And he sang, "Yo ho ho, let's paint the ship blue No other color's as trusty and true As sure as I sail by the Northern star, blue's the most beautiful color. Arrrr!" Redbeard spoke up, saying, "Aye, but instead wouldn't ye rather we painted her red? Red for the cannons and the sodey-pop kegs Red for our eye-patches, parrots and pegs." (Parrot) Rawk! Pegleg. And he sang, "Yo ho ho, nothing's quite like red It's fearsome and fiery and fills men with dread As sure as I sail by the Northern star, red's the most radiant color. Arrr!" "Blackbeard said, "Blimey! You're both off the track. Let's paint it something more handsome, like black." "Blue!" shouted Bluebeard, and Redbeard yelled, "Red!" Blackbeard said, "Black! Are you cracked in the head?" And he sang, "Yo ho ho, give me deep, dark black from starboard to port, from the front to the back. As sure as I sail by the Northern star, black's a spectacular color. Arrr!" Redbeard grabbed brushes and buckets and paints Over his shipmates insistent complaints. Rather than letting him paint the ship red, They got some blue paint and black paint instead. Swiftly the three of them painted their boat, each a completely dissimilar coat, Making a color not red, black or blue; Mixing, instead, an entirely new hue. That was the last that was seen of the three Simply because they refused to agree. They weren't torpedoed or shelled or harpooned. They just disappeared, for their ship was marooned. And sometimes on a foggy night at sea, you can still hear them singin'... "Yo ho ho and a bottle of pop We painted our ship from the bottom to the top. As sure as we sail by the Northern star (Bluebeard) Blue's the most beautiful... (Redbeard) No! Red's the most radiant! (Blackbeard) What? Black's the most spectacular color! (Parrot) Rawk. How about yellow? (Blackbeard, Bluebeard and Redbeard) Arrrr!"
