It's 3 years to the very day
Since a pirate captain said to me
Hey lad come join our crew
Adventure and glory waits for you!

I took his words as gold
Set sail for quests untold
With a bottle of rum in my hand
I dreamed of wealth and foreign lands!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked you'll cease to be!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked your destiny!

On the 16th night at sea
In the depths of toil and misery
We struck a hidden reef
And our ship began to sink beneath

I grabbed some drifting wood
And held on as long as I could
'Til abandoned on a desert isle
Now stuck here 'til the day I die!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked you will cease to be!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked your destiny!

Shipwrecked!
Shipwrecked!
Get drunk or die!

Shipwrecked!
Shipwrecked!
Get drunk or die!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked you will cease to be!

Hey! you're banjaxed!
Hey! you're screwed!
And death is coming for you!
Trapped on an island lost at sea!
Shipwrecked your destiny!

    Well yeah, they don't sing "banjaxed" (like one commenter pointed out), but they certainly don't sing "badgered" either. What they actually sing is "banjacked", which is a variant of "banjaxed". Both are slang words (chiefly irish, i believe), meaning "destroyed or "ruined".
