Ten Little Pirates

Ten little pirates stand in a row,

(hold both hands up with 10 fingers raised)

They all bow down to the captain, so.

(bend fingers down, then up)

They march to the left and they march to the right,

(move hands to left and right)

They shout “Yo Ho!” and give their captain a fright!

(shout loudly and clap hands on “fright”)

If You’re a Pirate and You Know It

If you’re a pirate and you know it, swab the deck,

(swish, swish)

If you’re a pirate and you know it, swab the deck,

(swish, swish)

If you’re a pirate and you know it, then you’ll hear the sea winds blowin,

If you’re a pirate and you know it, swab the deck,

(swish, swish)

Verses two and three:

If you’re a pirate and you know it, walk the plank

(stomp, stomp)

If you’re a pirate and you know it, say ahoy.

(Ahoy!)
