Marchant par-dessus les temp?tes,
Courant dans la vague et le vent,
Chassant les blanches go?lettes,
C'est nous ?a, les gaillards d'avant.
C'est nous qui sommes les corsaires,
Brigands tout comme ?taient nos p?res.

{Refrain:}
Ho-hisse et Ho ! Mis?ricorde !
Pour nous tenir au bout d'une corde,
Faudra d'abord nous attraper,
Faudra d'abord nous aborder...
Ho-hisse-ho ! Pavillon noir !
Ho-hisse-ho ! Pavillon haut !
Tant que le vent pousse la fr?gate,
'y a du bon temps pour les pirates.
Tant que la mer est par-dessous,
C'est le corsaire qui tient le bon bout !
Ho-hisse-ho ! Pavillon noir !
Ho-hisse-ho ! Pavillon haut !

Tant pis pour les yeux de ta m?re.
Tant pis pour la reine et le roi.
Tant mieux si tu deviens corsaire.
J?sus ?tait un hors-la-loi.
Viens donc fr?quenter les ?toiles.
Dormir dans le ventre des voiles.

{Refrain}
