I was about to say that one. I was ALMOST first to mention it.

Never the less.

The Last Saskatchewan Pirate by The Arrogant Worms

Oh, I used to be a farmer, and I made a living fine.

I had a little stretch of land along the CP line.

But time went by and though I tried, the money wasn't there.

And bankers came and took my land and told me fair is fair.

I looked for every kind of job the answer's always no.

Hire you now, they'd always laugh, we just let twenty go.

The government, they promised me a measly little sum.

But I've got too much pride to end up just another bum.

Then I thought, "Who gives a damn if all the jobs are gone?

I'm gonna be a pirate...on the river Saskatchewan."


'Cause it's a hee-ho, hi-ho, comin' down the plains.

Stealin' wheat and barley and all the other grains.

It's a ho-hey, hi-hey, farmers bar your doors

When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.

Arrr, arrr.

Well you'd think the local farmers would know that I'm at large.

But just the other day, I found an unsuspecting barge.

I snuck up right behind them and they were none the wiser.

I rammed their ship and sank it and I stole their fertilizer.

A bridge outside of Moosejaw spans a mighty river.

Farmers cross in so much fear their stomachs are aquiver.

'Cause they know that CRACKER JACK is hiding in the bay.

I'll jump the bridge and knock em cold and sail off with their hay.


Arr, arrr, arr.

Well Mountie Bob he chased me, he was always at my throat.

He'd follow on the shoreline, but he didn't own a boat.

But cutbacks were a-comin' so the Mountie lost his job.

So now he's sailing with me and we call him Salty Bob.

A swingin' sword, a skull-and-bones, and pleasant company.

I never pay my income tax and screw the GST


Prince Albert down to Saskatoon, the terror of the sea.

If you wanna reach the co-op, boy, you gotta get by me.


Arr matey. Get it..."metis"?

Oh hey hey, that's rielly fun. You..y'know. Like Louis Riel?

Well pirate life's appealing but you don't just find it here.

I heard that in Alberta there's a band of buchaneers.

They roam the Athabasca from Smith to Fort McKay

And you're gonna lose your Stetson if you have to pass their way.

Well winter is a-comin' and a chill is in the breeze.

Pirate days are over once the river starts to freeze.

I'll be back in springtime, but now I have to go.

I hear there's lots of plunderin' down in New Mexico.

(Chorus x2)

When you see the Jolly Roger on Regina's mighty shores.
