lyrics

I have inhaled a thousand years of dust
Where is my crew?
They have been captured by mummies

Set sail!

Set sail for Egypt, sailing down the Nile
Robbing old tombs, that’s Rumahoy's style
We found this old pyramid in an alley downtown
Out the front there were scarab beetles all around

Cabinboy, get the rum, we’ll shoot through that door
Bootsman, prepare for a monstrous roar
Of a curse being unleashed for the first time in an age
Will we find a treasure gun, It’s just to soon to say

As we smashed through that ancient opening
Hieroglyphics be damned

I have inhaled a thousand years of dust
Where is my crew?
They have been captured by mummies
I have inhaled a thousand years of dust
Stranded alone
Glory and treasure are here no more

Searching through the dust, there's no-one to be seen
Nothing left of my crew except this plate of beans
Mummies all around me, crawling down the walls
I hear their incantation, a deadly zombie call

Mummies, zombies, yarr ahoy
Secret, passage, underground
Dusty, chamber
Scarab, beetles, everywhere

Deep in the tomb, I find my crew
Chained up surrounded by mummies
I fire my gun, the mummies explode
Now lets get the hell out of here

Running, from the, zombie tomb
Escape, to the, overground

I have inhaled a thousand years of dust
Where is my crew?
They have been captured by mummies
I have inhaled a thousand years of dust
Where is my crew?

I have inhaled a thousand years of dust
Where is my crew?
They have been captured by mummies
I have inhaled a thousand years of dust
Stranded alone
Glory and treasure are here no more

My name is Captain Yarrface, and I am the greatest pirate in the whole world
