If we are going to live in a fantasy world, then I’m going to be a pirate

We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.
Anaïs Nin

I have recently realized I am a dangerous woman to the delicate sensibilities in the civilized world.

Most people love to live in the world of delusion.  Some are so open about this choice about this that they prefer to pretend they are vampires.  I get it.  I truly do.  Vampires are “in”.  So are zombies. That’s cool…to each his own.

But if I’m going to live in fantasy, then I’m going to be a PIRATE.  And I’ll tell you why.

You Are A Pirate – song from Lazytown – a kid’s show on TV.  The video above is the song set to the movie 300.

Do what you want, ‘cause a pirate is free,
YOU ARE A PIRATE!
Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is alright to be,
Do what you want ‘cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!

(spoken)You are a pirate!
(crowd)Yay!

We’ve got us a map, (a map!)
To lead us to a hidden box,
That’s all locked up with locks! (with locks!)
And buried deep away!

We’ll dig up the box, (the box!)
We know it’s full of precious booty!
Burst open the locks!
And then we’ll say hooray!

(girl’s voice)Yar, har, fiddle di dee.
If you love to sail the sea,
You are a pirate!

(spoken)Weigh anchooor!

Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is alright to be!
Do what you want ‘‘cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!
Arr yarr, ahoy and avast,
dinky-dink-dink-a-dinkadefast!
Hang the black flag
At the end of the mast!
You are a pirate!

Hahaha! (Yay!)

We’re sailing away (set sail!),
Adventure awaits on every shore!
We set sail and explore (ya-har!)
And run and jump all day (Yay!)
We float on our boat (the boat!)
Until its time to drop the anchor,
Then hang up our coats (aye-aye!)
Until we sail again!

(girl’s voice)Yar, har, fiddle di dee.
If you love to sail the sea,
You are a pirate!

Laaaand ho!

Yar har, fiddle di dee,
Being a pirate is alright with me!
Do what you want ‘cause a pirate is free,
You are a pirate!

(spoken)Yar har, wind at your back, lads,
Wherever you go!

(singing)Blue sky above and blue ocean below,
You are a pirate!

(spoken)Hahahahaa!
You’re a pirate!

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again

    Scary video footage …lol

  2. Someone had the idea to set a children’s song to the movie “300”.

    Here’s the original.
