lyrics

Young Jack Roberts is a pirate’s son
His dad takes him out for fresh air and fun on the weekend
They sail the high seas at leisure
And search for treasure
But Jack hates the boat and hates the sea
And all the pillaging of villagers makes him feel queasy
He dreams of ice cream he’s never had
But he wouldn’t like to disappoint his dad

CHORUS:
Yo ho yo ho
La da da da da da da da da da da

Little Sally Roberts is a pirate’s daughter
Who hates the waves, hates salt water
The family outing gives no pleasure to daddy’s treasure
Sally hates parrots Sally hates gold
All the pillaging of villagers makes her feel cold
She’d rather walk on a mountain top
But she’d never dream of disappointing her pop

CHORUS

Wild Man Roberts is a pirate bold
Or at least he was, before his heart and hook got old
Marauding makes him tired, he’d rather
Stroll in the city, but he says a good father must think of his kids
coz every kid dreams about the pirate life
and I’d hate to disappoint them
every kid dreams about the pirate life
and I’d hate to disappoint them

CHORUS

So the boat goes up
The boat goes down
Fish swim by
The world goes round ... (4 times)

Yo ho ho da da da da da da da da
