This song begins as "My Sweet Lord" and ends fittingly as a pirate classic!- peterpuck9
Facts:
  • The band that appears onstage as the backing instrumentals appear very briefly in the Rutles movie as the "Machismo Brothers." Since Eric Idle was one of the four members of the Rutles, and played the part of the Emcee/Host for Harrison's pirate performance, the backing band did not later become the Rutles, as some sources claim. (Hatman)
  • This song was played numerous times on the "Friggin' Here" show (1996-2006) (davidtanny)
  • The backing instrumentals were done by the band that would later be known as "The Rutles" (DJ Particle)
  • Song Lyrics:
    I want to be a pirate
    A pirate's life for me
    All my friends are pirates
    And sail the b. b. sea
    I've got a jolly roger
    It's black and white and vast
    Get out of your skull and crossbones
    And I'll run it up your mast

    With a yo-ho-ho
    And a ya-ha-ha
    And a ye-hee-hee-ho-hum
    With a yo-ho-ho
    And a ya-ha-ha
    And a yum-yum-jum-jum
    (I B Emerson)

    This is the version where Eric Idle introducing George Harrison's Pirate song. Another version has Neil Innes with George in a sketch before he sings the song.
