Pirate Radio Lyrics

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

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

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 their stinky laws
Freedom from the FCC
And their money grubbin’ paws


A pirate flag’s a’wavin’
To fight the FCC
Those lily-livered scalawags
Full of mendacity
It’s mutiny on the airwaves
We’re scullin’ lots of rum
We’ll make ‘em walk the plank
We’re havin’ lots of fun

(Repeat chorus, ad lib pirate talk, fade out)
