Is it because I'm a pirate?

Now I've done a string of horrible things
Like murdering, pillaging and theft
I've looted the junks in the Straits of Malacca
Put Spanish explorers to death
But prejudice would be the ugliest thing
For a waitress so lovely to feel

Is it because I'm a pirate
You seem to have cancelled our date?
And is it because I'm a pirate
That now it's a quarter to eight?
Your prejudice turns you against me
But I am prepared to wait

"I like your eyepatch!" Who said that?
I took in your waist then your face
Floating above me, pouring out tea
In some Nakameguro place
And though it was rude to the girl I was with
I asked if you'd go for a date
And then when you said you'd be happy to meet
I dreamed of your breasts and your face

Is it because I'm a pirate
You seem to have cancelled our date?
Your prejudice turned you against me
And now it's a quarter past eight
A stereotype would be ugly
For someone so lovely to propagate

Of course I am wanted by customs officials
Of course I'm an international fugitive
When not slitting throats of the people in boats
I am kind and surprisingly sensitive
Set your mind free, as I know you can
One day you may see me as just another man

Is it because I'm a pirate
I seem to be stood up again?
And is it because I'm a pirate
It's already quarter to ten?
Life is too short, I am too great
For a waitress so lovely to hate
But I am prepared to wait
