Royal Blue Vinegaroons
I'll tell you of a pirate crew
Who famously were all insane
Their sailing ship was made of anchors
They had a most peculiar name

Royal Blue Vinegaroons
The first mate was a trained baboon
They ate doubloons and drank spittoons
Royal Blue Vinegaroons

Them scalawags had hooks for hands
And some had wooden pegs for legs
Their captain had the worst prosthetic
He used a starfish for his head

Royal Blue Vinegaroons
A goofy crew of true buffoons
Their weapons were balloons and spoons
Royal Blue Vinegaroons

Royal Blue Vinegaroons
If they return it won't be soon
They got marooned upon the moon
Royal Blue Vinegarooooons!
