Sing a Song
I’m a pirate
(Tune: “Yankee Doodle” )
I’m a pirate. That I be!
I sail my ship upon the sea.
I stay up late – til half past three.
And have a peg below my knee.
Yo ho ho ho
Let’s sail away Aarrr! Matey!
Is what I say.
A treasure I will hide today
And walk the plank another day.
Jake and the Neverland Pirates! Talk Like a Pirate!
Dress up like pirates and enjoy an imaginary adventure together. A large box can become a pirate ship, or a walk around the park can be exploring new territory.
