Newsboys – Yo Ho, Hero lyrics

Raise the mast on the Steadfast
Swifter than a bareback seahorse
Sailing an uncharted sea course
Who could survive such a dangerous mission?
Alongside pirates with zero ambition...

We got the coconuts poured
We dropped the hooks overboard
And if you get a little sea sick
We play a haddock for a hat trick

We got the hammocks on the main deck (swingin' low)
We got the butler doing the hen-peck (screamin' so
He say we should have swabbin' the poop deck (We don't know)
It's what the other pirates do, do
But we're bringin' you

Yo ho, Hero
Standin' in the gap
Where'd ya put the toys?
Time to take a nap

Yo ho, Heroes
Flighty as a bird
Easy is the word
Yo, I'm seeing no heroes

We're on a limbo craze
It's a relic for our limber days
Now we're stuck inside The Limbo Zone
It's where the pirates go with too much time
And a missing spine

Yo ho, Heroes!
Standin' in the gap
Where'd ya put the map?
Take another nap

Yo ho, Heroes
Strike a better pose
That's the way it goes
Yo, I'm seeing no heroes!

We're on the bad mood swing
We haven't done one thing
Not even a minimum daily requirement
We got the Funk without the Parliament

And if you're feeling a little seasick (Rise and shine)
And if you wanna get off the guilt trip (Now's the time)
Because the captain of the main ship (Rings the chime)
He could be coming before you know him
What are ya gonna show him?

Go Hero!
Standing in the gap
Taking up the slack
Following the king's map

Go Hero!
Steady as a rock
I know it's it's a shock
Yo, there be a hero

Go Hero!
Standing in the gap
Taking up the slack
Following the king's map

Go hero!
Steady at the wheel
Keep an even keel
Yo, there be the king's hero!
