GerryM Barrett's Privateers- Explicit Lyrics? (42) RE: Barrett's Privateers- Explicit Lyrics? 04 Oct 20

The whole chorus needs rewriting. Offensive to the religious, to Americans, to the disabled ("a broken man", indeed!), and I'm sure "privateer" is an insult. Let's try this:

Gosh darn them all! I was told
We'd cruise the seas for someone else's gold.
We'd fire no guns, shed no tears.
Now I'm bilateral BK on a Halifax pier,
The last of Barrett's privately commissioned warriors.
