[Verse]
Dm
I once met a lass so fine.
C
She was drunk on barley wine.
Bb
I'd been to sea,
A
for months a-three.
Dm
I knew I could make her mine.
F
And the lass was past consent,
C
So it was off with her we went.
Bb
And we threw her in bed
A
and rested her head
Dm
And we left, 'cause that's what gentlemen do.

[Chorus]
Dm                  G
A woman has a right to a drink or two,
A                  Dm
Without worrying about what you will do.
Dm                  G
We say "Yo, ho!" but we don't say "ho,"
A                  Dm
'Cause "ho" is disrespectful, yo!

[Verse]
Dm
There once was a girl from Leeds,
C
Who I heard was good on her knees.
Bb
So I docked my ship
A
for an overnight trip,
Dm
To take care of all of my needs.
F
She was fine as the tales did tell,
C
And my mast began to swell!
Bb
So I laid her down
A
and raised her gown,
Dm
And performed cunnilingus for an hour or so.

[Chorus]
Dm                  G
Always take care of your lady fair.
A                  Dm
'Cause they deserve as much attention down there
Dm                  G
We say "Yo, ho!" but we don't say "ho,"
A                  Dm
'Cause "ho" is disrespectful, yo!

[Verse]
Dm
I once had a woman so fair.
C
Whose womb contained my heir.
Bb
With a son by my side,
A
the seas we'd ride,
Dm
The child she would bear.
F
But my girl, she was no fool.
C
She was working her way through school.
Bb
So I did support
A
when she chose to abort,
Dm
Because it's her body and therefore her choice.

[Chorus]
Dm                         G                  
No, we don't say "booty" 'less we're talking about gold.
A                          Dm
We don't look at chests 'less it, treasure holds.
Dm                         G
With a hat and a feather and a cutlass on our hip,
A                         Dm
We will never say "she" when we're talking 'bout a ship.
Dm                         G
We don't say "bitch" and we don't say "whore,"
A                         Dm
'Cause that language leads to things like body dysmorphia.

[Verse]
Dm
There was a lady with a golden eye,
C
And the doctor said she would die.
Bb
So she emptied her purse
A
to lift the curse,
Dm
And prayed to stay alive.
F
She awoke the very next day,
C
Hand in her grave she lay.
Bb
But the scariest part
A
of the story from the start,
Dm
Is I bet you assume the doctor was a man

[Chorus]
Dm            G
Women are doctors, too!
A            Dm
And for a fraction of the doubloons.
Dm            G
We say "Yo, ho!" but we don't say "ho,"
A            Dm
'Cause "ho" is disrespectful, yo!
Dm
There was a slut with tits to here,
C
And an ass that
Dm                  G
'Cause it's "Yo, ho!" but we don't say "ho,"
A                  Dm
'Cause "ho" is disrespectful, yo!
