Hey, Dan! What’s the matter? Oh, Mike, I can’t tell the difference between a pirate and a parrot. Really? You can’t tell the difference at all? No. Well, it’s a good thing I wrote this song about it. Oh, I got feathers and a beak. Are you singing about a parrot? I flap my wings and sometimes speak. Are you singing about a parrot? Tell me have you ever heard what’s a pirate’s favorite bird? Are you singing about a parrot? I got a patch right over my eye. Are you singing about a pirate? I search for treasure far and wide. Are you singing about a pirate? Bravely sail the seven seas. There’s no one out there mean as me. Are you singing about a pirate? I’ve got wings. You’re a parrot! Peg leg. You’re a pirate! My name’s Polly! You’re a parrot! My name’s Guybrush Threepwood. Pirate! Oh, shiver me timbers and a yo ho ho. Are you singing about a pirate? Squawk uh oh uh oh. Are you singing about a parrot? Pirate or parrot, if you just can’t tell, take a big whiff and determine by the smell. Pirate or parrot? Pirate or parrot? Pirate or parrot?
