Pirate Radio

This song is by Mojo Nixon & Skid Roper and appears on the album Root Hog Or Die (1989).

A pirate ship's a-sailin'
Out on the stormy seas
It's the Radio Free America
Just for you and me
The big radio stations
Are stinkin' up the air
Playing pusillanimous plotz
It's a real nightmare
Sing!

Aye aye mateys, oh
Come on the Pirate Radio
Land of the free and home of the brave
FCC, crawl in your grave

The Coast Guard's a-comin'
To shut the pirates down
They don't believe in free speech
The FCC's in town
Their hacksaws and their hammers
They smash it all to bits
They won a little battle
But the war's not over yet
Sing!

Aye aye mateys, oh
Come on the Pirate Radio
Land of the free and home of the brave
FCC, crawl in your grave

What are they afraid of?
That we might tell the truth?
We might play something good
And it wouldn't be a goof
What we need is liberty
Not those stinky laws
Freedom from the FCC
And their money grubbin' paws
Sing!

Aye aye mateys, oh
Come on the Pirate Radio
Land of the free and home of the brave
FCC, crawl in your grave

Crawl in there, you perverts

A pirate flag's a-wavin'
To fight the FCC
Livered scalawags
Full of mendacity
It's mutiny on the airwaves
We're scullin' lots o' rum
We'll make 'em walk the plank
We're havin' lots of fun
Sing!

Aye aye mateys, oh
Come on the Pirate Radio
Land of the free and home of the brave
FCC, crawl in your grave
Aye aye mateys, oh
Come on the Pirate Radio
Land of the free and home of the brave
FCC, crawl in your grave
Sing, aye aye mateys, oh
Come on the Pirate Radio
Land of the free and home of the brave
FCC, crawl in your grave

Crawl in there, you stinky, slimy slugs
Aye, keelhaul 'em
Make 'em walk the plank
Forty lashes
Gouge their eyes out
Chop their legs off
Eye-gouger McGillicuddy's my name
(Get away from me poop deck, Mojo)
