You are a Pirate

There’s this awful video/song floating around the net lately and I wanted to be sure to warn you about it. It comes from Lazy Town which you can find on Nick Jr and Sprouts. If you’re not familiar with Lazy Town, be ye warned – it can be quite disturbing and addictive. Kind of like H.R. Pufnstuf for the modern [Japanese] audience. You remember H.R. Pufnstuf, dontcha?

Stephanie and the kids are having fun playing pirates. When Uncle Milford finds what they are doing, he tells them the story of a real pirate that once sailed in LazyTown — Rottenbeard. Rottenbeard did whatever he wanted and spread laziness to every home until a hero arrived to stop him, as recorded in the LazyTown Big Book of History. Rottenbeard tried to get rid of everything healthy, but could never destroy the famous LazyTown stone, so he stole it and buried it. When Robbie Rotten learns of this ancient treasure, he decides to dress up as a pirate and create a fake LazyTown stone. He buries the stone and sets sail with the kids on a fake treasure hunt. The kids are excited by the chance to be real pirates at first, but soon discover the pirate life isn’t all that they thought it was. – TV.com

Have you ever seen this show before? I have.

You are a Pirate – lyrics

[Robbie Rotten]
Do what you want ’cause a pirate is free, you are a pirate! [ALL]
Yarr har fiddle dee dee
Being a pirate is alright to be
Do what you want ’cause a pirate is free
You are a pirate!

[Robbie Rotten]
You are a pirate.

[ALL]
Yeah!

[Robbie Rotten (ALL)]
We got us a map (A MAP!)
to lead us to a hidden box
that’s all locked up with locks (WITH LOCKS!)
and buried deep away
We’ll dig up the box (THE BOX!)
We know it’s full of precious booty
Burst open the locks

[ALL]
And then we say hooray!

[Stephanie]
Yarr har fiddle dee dee
If you love to sail the sea
You are a pirate

[Robbie Rotten]
Weigh anchor!

[ALL]
Yarr har fiddle dee dee
Being a pirate is alright to be
Do what you want ’cause a pirate is free
You are a pirate!
Arr yarr ahoy and avast
Diggity dirt and dig diggity fast

[Robbie Rotten]
Hang the black flag at the end of the mast!

[ALL]
You are a pirate!

[Robbie Rotten]
(laughs)

[ALL]
Yay!

[Robbie Rotten (ALL)]
We’re sailing away (SET SAIL!)
Adventure waits on every shore
We set sail and explore (YARR HAR!)
and run and jump all day (YEAH!)
We float in our boat (THE BOAT!)
until it’s time to drop the anchor
Then hang up our coats (AYE AYE!)
Until we sail again!

[Stephanie]
Yarr har fiddle dee dee
If you love to sail the sea
You are a pirate

(record scratch)

[Robbie Rotten]
Land ho!

[ALL]
Yarr har fiddle dee dee
Being a pirate is alright to be
Do what you want ’cause a pirate is free
You are a pirate!

[Robbie Rotten]
Yarr har! Wind at your back lads wherever you go!

[ALL]
Blue sky above and blue ocean below
You are a pirate!

[Robbie Rotten]
(laughs)
You are a pirate!

    I cannot stand this show! Thank goodness Lil’ M has grown out of it. I can’t imagine why you’ve seen this voluntarily. Unless you have nieces and nephews.

    FinnI’ve seen it because I like to have the TV on while I work on my computer Saturday mornings. Sometimes I stop on Nick Jr. Sometimes I stop on Veggie Tales. It’s just background noise (usually) Plus I need to be building up an immunity for when my child is born.
