Guybrush Threepwood, Mighty Pirate™, always talks the talk but never quite walks the walk. I chose to express what I’m sure is at least some level of wistful frustration with his lack of success as a sea-plundering buccaneer. What better way to do that than with a plaintive sea shanty?


There once was a pirate named Guybrush
who wanted to plunder the seas
He dreamed of a life that was so very lush
but Captain LeChuck disagreed!

One by one, Guybrush practiced puns
Two by two, oh, how the insults flew!

And what, you might ask, is the moral?
This story seems silly at best
I implore you, my child, do not quarrel with me
Or LeChuck might come after you next!

Hey, nonny, nonny, hey!
Hey, nonny, nonny, hey!
Hey, nonny, nonny, hey!
Guybrush… nonny, nonny, nonny… might save the day!
