Yon’s my privateer

See how trim she lies

To every man a lucky hand

And every man a prize

I live to ride the ocean
     C             G     Am
The mighty world around
                   C
To take a little plunder
        G               Am
And to hear the cannon sound

    F               C
To lay with pretty women
                  G    D/F#
To drink Madeira wine
    Am                C
To hear the rollers thunder
       G               Am
On a shore that isn’t mine

      Am
Privateering we will go

Privateering, yo ho hoho

Privateering we will go

Yo ho ho, yo ho ho

     Am
The people on your man o’ war

Are treated worse than scum

I’m no flogging captain

And by God I’ve sailed with some

Come with me to Barbary
        C               G    Am
We’ll ply there up and down
            C
Not quite exactly
        G               Am
In the service of the Crown
    F               C
To lay with pretty women
                  G    D/F#
To drink Madeira wine
    Am                C
To hear the rollers thunder
       G               Am
On a shore that isn’t mine


      Am
Privateering we will go

Privateering, yo ho hoho

Privateering we will go

Yo ho ho, yo ho ho

 Am
Look’ee there’s my privateer

She’s small but she can sting

Licensed to take prizes

With a letter from the King

I love the streets and taverns
       C             G
Of a pretty foreign town
        Am                   C
Tip my hat to the dark-eyed ladies
       G            Am
As we sally up and down
    F               C
To lay with pretty women
                  G    D/F#
To drink Madeira wine
    Am                C
To hear the rollers thunder
       G               Am
On a shore that isn’t mine


      Am
Privateering we will go

Privateering, yo ho hoho

Privateering we will go

Yo ho ho, yo ho ho

    Am
Britannia needs her privateers

Each time she goes to war

Death to all her enemies

Though prizes matter more

Come with me to Barbary
        C               G    Am
We’ll ply there up and down
            C
Not quite exactly
        G               Am
In the service of the Crown
    F               C
To lay with pretty women
                  G    D/F#
To drink Madeira wine
    Am                C
To hear the rollers thunder
       G               Am
On a shore that isn’t mine


      Am
Privateering we will go

Privateering, yo ho hoho

Privateering we will go

Yo ho ho, yo ho ho
