Blackbeard's Treasure Lyrics

by Captain Dan And The Scurvy Crew

I was sippin' on rum down in Ol' Havana
Relaxing, just kicking it -- under the cabana
When this old man walks up, scurvy as can be
He taps me on the shoulder and he points to the sea

"Pardon me, sir. Are you the Captain Dan?"
"I'm a sailor no more, now I live on the land."
"Well this map I have points to perilous pleasure,
A long lost chest containing Blackbeard's treasure."

"You're the worst liar amongst the scurvy knaves!
That treasure's been swallowed by the ocean waves!
A storm took that dinghy and it's undertow..."
"Ah, Captain D, that is surely not so."

"Well then," I say, "What is your fee?
Or should I just kill you and take it for free?
Just give me that map, let me have a look."
"Unhand me at once you rotten crook!"

I'm a bilge rat, mateys, I'm a serious sailor
I don't need two hands just to rob from my neighbor
I'm hittin' you with rhymes like a nine-tailed cat,
We're off to see me dig where the treasure is at!

Blackbeard's gold is all that we see
We plunder and we steal from the old and the meek
Droppin' fat rhymes every day of the week
We're the only rap crew with buccaneer technique!

"Now this is a joke that doesn't make me laugh
You call this a map -- But where's the other half! ?
Give me a name, put me on the path!
Tell me right now or you'll be feelin' my wrath!"

"It's in the possession of the pirate Corsair,
He's gone to the Keys from the port of Lobear
His ship's been wounded and is headed for repair
If you set sail now you'll catch him unaware!"

So we find Corsair and his wounded galleon
"Strike your colors so we can board, you rapscallion!"
His flags go down 'cause he knows he's outgunned
So onto his ship and we begin with the fun.

"Give me the map!" I scream at Corsair
Put my gun to his nose and waved my hook in the air
"Never, you dog! That's enough with your gripe!"
So we tie him up in knots and make him walk the plank!

Blackbeard's gold is all that we see
We plunder and we steal from the old and the meek
Droppin' fat rhymes every day of the week
We're the only rap crew with buccaneer technique!

Before he goes over, a spark lights his eye
"I have the map here, I don't want to die!"
I take the map and review it with glee
And then push him overboard, out into the sea. (Agh! )

We plunder their booty and scuffle the ship
Who wants a galleon that's been beat by a whip?
The map was complete, who cares what we did
We set sail for the X where the treasure is hid.

Three days travel to the mouth of the cave
The sky is all dark and not a single wave
The waters only sailed by the dumb or the brave
In pursuit of the riches that we dared to crave

Blackbeard's chest, it was sitting right there!
A mountain of gold, in the open air
I was just so focused on what it'd be worth
I didn't notice a rumble rising under the earth.

I'm a bilge rat, mateys, I'm a serious sailor
I don't need two hands just to rob from my neighbor
I'm hittin' you with rhymes like a nine-tailed cat,
We're off to see me dig where the treasure is at!

What the hell is this! A dragon, blast!
Better call the mateys over here, really fast!
It went something like this: The dragon was pissed
And ate all my sailors in the flick of a wrist.

With a metallic crash, the PD10 appeared
I'm sorry, but the plot here it gets kinda weird
You see I drank so much rum since this story's begun
I forgot what happened at the end of the run

Oh yes, I remember! The dragon was slain!
The robot's lasers shot and splattered his brains
I took all the loot and shot back to my ship
Went back to Havana, and I chilled for a bit.

I'm a bilge rat, mateys, I'm a serious sailor
I don't need two hands just to rob from my neighbor
I'm hittin' you with rhymes like a nine-tailed cat,
We're off to see me dig where the treasure is at!

Blackbeard's gold is all that we see
We plunder and we steal from the old and the meek
Droppin' fat rhymes every day of the week
We're the only rap crew with buccaneer technique!

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
