The Twelve Pirate Days of Christmas

Let’s get into the holiday spirit, shall we? I give you a remake of a favorite classic Christmas carol. Sing along with me!

The Twelve Days of a Pirate Christmas

A fine ship to sail the deep blue sea.

On the second day of Christmas, a pirate gave to me
Two treasure maps
And a fine ship to sail the deep blue sea.

Three black flags,
Two treasure maps
And a fine ship to sail the deep blue sea.

Four bags of loot,
Three black flags,
Two treasure maps
And a fine ship to sail the deep blue sea.
