I am a pirate and I do not sleep!
I thief night jewels for me to keep.
My Lady with her treasures bold
is generous when the wee hours wax old.
The words upon her golden tongue
are by the midnight spirits sung.
I catch the songs in my jolly heart,
then bursting full I do depart,
‘n sail away to the break of day
to spread her tales far and away!
I am a pirate and I do not sleep,
my treasure is the tears you weep,
my prize is the laughter in your eyes,
for Insomnia’s bedfellow is a pirate wise.
