I was Flint's first mate|that voyage...

three days east of Tortola|in the Caribie.

Flint knew an island.

That's where we buried|the treasure.

Gold and blood,|they were Flint's trademarks.

He'd leave both|behind him that day.

Shiver my timbers|Shiver my soul

Yo ho, heave ho

There are men whose hearts|are as black as coal

Yo ho, heave ho

And they sailed their ship|'cross the ocean blue

A bloodthirsty captain|and a cutthroat crew

It's as dark a tale|as was ever told

Of the lust for treasure|and the love of gold

Shiver my timbers|Shiver my sides

Yo ho, heave ho

There are hungers as strong|as the winds and tides

Yo ho, heave ho

And those buccaneers|drown their sins in rum

The devil himself would|have to call them scum

Every man aboard would have|killed his mate

For a bag of guineas|or a piece of eight

A piece of eight

- A piece of eight|- A five, six, seven, eight

Hulla wacka, ulla wacka|Something not right

Many wicked icky things|gonna happen tonight

Hulla wacka, moolah wacka|Sailor man beware

When de money in de ground|Dere's murder in de air

Murder in the air

One more time now.

Shiver my timbers|Shiver my bones

Yo ho, heave ho

There are secrets that sleep|with old Davy Jones

Yo ho, heave ho

When the mainsail's set|and the anchor's weighed

There's no turning back|from any course that's laid

And when greed and villainy|sail the sea

You can bet your boots|there'll be treachery

Shiver my timbers|Shiver my sails

Dead men tell no tales

Oh, aye. Fifteen men|went ashore that day...

and only Flint, his own self,|returned.

Oh, aye, and then old Flinty...

up and died afore they could get|back to that cursed island...

and dig up the treasure.

No one knows to this day|who has old Flint's map.

Now, isn't that a story|worth the hearing?

It was the first dozen|times we heard it.

I'll drink to that.

But who has|the map now, huh?

Some black-hearted,|squid-suckin' buccaneer?

Or maybe it's|our very own Jim Hawkins.


If I had it, my friends and I wouldn't|be here serving you rum, Mr Bones.

That's right. We'd be out|searching for that treasure...

sailing the seven seas|on a five-year mission...

boldly going where no man|has gone before.

- Say, that's catchy.|- Huh. Not me.

If I had that treasure map,|I'd be tradin' it for a decent meal.

Hey, Gonzo, you think|he's gonna eat this?

Aye! Beware the one-legged man!|He's the one to fear!

Don't worry, Captain.|We'll watch for him.

Yeah, I'll watch for him,|if he's deliverin' a pizza.

Even old Flinty|feared him.

If he comes pokin' 'round here,|you run for me whippety-quick!

- If we see him, we'll tell you.|- Yeah. One leg, three heads...

couple of dozen noses...|if anything weird happens...

And it'll be nay|jokin' matter, hose nose.

The one-legged man|brings death.

Time, gentlemen!

It's closing time!

Ya pays your bills,|and then ya shove off.

Go on. Out ya go!

Oh, you're drunk again,|are ya?

Boys, look at the state|of this place!

How comes it gets to be|such a pigsty, huh?

Pigsty? Hey!

No offence meant, gentlemen, sirs.|No offence meant.

- Here's to you, boys!|- Time!

- I'm away to my room.|- Thank you, Mr Bones.

- Thank you, Bill.|- There you go!

Don't forget to come back tomorrow|for our lunchtime special:

- roast suckling...|- Huh?

- Potatoes, sir. Potatoes.|- All right.

No... No offence, madam.|No offence.

All right, boys.

When you're finished here,|you can go and clean up in the kitchen.

I left some table scraps|in there for your supper.

Oh, yes, and, boys...

last night you forgot|to put out the lantern!

If you forget that again,|there'll be no table scraps for a week!
