This is a collab with some SC friends in Rhode Island and Connecticut and based on a true story:

A Pirate's Life

He was born to the sea, took lobster by trade,
George's Bank is where his livin' was made.
Life was the ocean, vibrant and hearty,
Tossed on the swells, it's the fisherman's party!

The feel, the rush, the danger, the storm,
Yet life on dry land, it stabbed like a thorn.
The boat rests at dock, and inside he grieves,
An ignorant pirate is all they could see.

A Pirate's Life, livin' a dream,
Life on the ocean, at one with the sea,
A fisherman's dream, is not what it seems,
Life on the ocean ain't no life for me!

His friends were few, and very few knew,
Not even his captain or the ignorant crew.
Johnny Kool's treasure, let it be told,
He had the soul of a pirate, and a heart made of gold!

Repeat Chorus

He eased the pain, with smack and booze,
An ongoing battle he'd inevitably lose.
His lovers were purchased, but it was his dream,
To marry this maiden and bring love to sea.

We last spoke, nineteen-eighty-three,
We threw down some shots, and he spoke of the sea.
Very few grieved, no children or wife,
For Johnny Kool lived A Pirate's Life!
