Versuri Tankard - Deposit Pirates

Album: Tankard - Thirst 2009

Sailing the alley, black scarf round my head
My old shopping-trolley heels close to the wind
Limping the gutter on my wooden limb
Smelling of whisky, rum, beer and gin

I hunt for treasures
Wherever treasures may be found
Don't look for diamonds
There's a greater prize just lying around

Approaching the waste bin, my hook held up high
I'll board this vessel if I live or die
To get all those bottles treasured within
The waste dump sounds with my battle-cry:

Deposit Pirates at bay!
Deliver your empties and pray!
Fight for your flasks, fight for your cans
Deposit Pirates at bay!
Fight for your flasks, fight for your cans
Deliver your empties and pray!

Kissing my brides at the Kiosks around
I lift my eye-patch, twinkling steal their refunds
My jolly roger's crossed bottles and jar
Winds toss my black wig I must go on

I hunt for treasures
Wherever treasures may be found
Don't look for diamonds
There's a greater prize just lying around

Deposit Pirates at bay!
Deliver your empties and pray!
Fight for your flasks, fight for your cans
Deposit Pirates at bay!
Fight for your flasks, fight for your cans
deliver your empties and pray!

The conquest is over, the sun's hanging low
I sail with the tide: now I've got to go
My chauffeur picks me up in my limousine
I'm master, commander, fund-saver and mean

Deposit Pirates at bay!
Deliver your empties and pray!
Fight for your flasks, fight for your cans
Deposit Pirates at bay!
Fight for your flasks, fight for your cans
deliver your empties and pray!
