got too many jewels to fit inside a single chest

i let the riches pour onto the floor of the deck

dubloons, diamonds, rubies, and silver

it’s fitting I’m sittin eating chicken on piles of riches I pilfered

women smitten by fine linens, words i be spittin

robbin from the richest most prestigious merchants outta britain

all girls eye these jewels, even your bitch

got so much coin, people call me filthy fuckin rich

other privateers know

jealous, those guys

my ship’s so laden with gems

folks mistake it for a sunrise

and are blinded

for the rest of their lives

and now none of them can see

their house, dog, or family,


the world’s leading cause of vision loss is me

it’s why they invented optometry

I make money viciously

through thievery,

my foes frozen stiff like they got muscular dystrophy

Sea Dawg

we sail

get that gold get that gold get that gold

get that gold

get that gold get that gold get that gold


get that gold get that gold get that gold

there’s gold, you say?
best get out of my way
‘cause Black Dog Nate brooks no delay

I’m on a quest for gold, and with a little bit of luck
I’ll get so much you’ll be thunderstruck
you all suck
‘cause you’re stuck in the muck
while I’m swimmin’ in doubloons like Scrooge McDuck

gonna sail the briny
to collect the shiny
leave a trail of empty treasuries behind me

don’t want your jewels, your silver or satin
just gimme that aurum (that’s gold in Latin)

gonna steal it all, or as much as I’m able
gonna pile it higher than the Tower of Babel
can’t spin it out of straw; this ain’t no fable
number seventy-nine on the periodic table

I break the mold
can’t be controlled
it’s been foretold
I’m gonna get that gold


I command more brigantines than any kings or queens

you can see a dozen off em right off my starboard beam

I’ve got piles of Escudo from Portugal,

so many pieces of eight, they are hardly transportable

spanish reals,

loot from successful steals,

this doesn’t even seem real

i got a tankard worth more than entire ports

bought it with the blood of a hundred lives cut short

I’m drinking down black rum by the quart
while I steal everything you’ve got in your fort


merchants be travelin with armed escort

cause while we be alive

sailing be a contact sport

my day is done
hardly had to fire my gun
but I increased my treasure by about a ton
it’s so bright
stacked to an incredible height
enough to excite any pirate’s appetite
so what’ll I do with the rest of my night?

Take a hit of this seaweed it'll treat ye right.

twelve hours later I roll out of bed
feels like a cannon went off in my head
my blood runs cold
there’s nothing in the hold
damn you, Sea Dawg, you got my gold!
