Fifteen Men on the dead man's chest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum
Drink and the devil had done for the rest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum

Long John Silver has taken command
He has no fear of bucks or seamen
With is one leg, up to all he does stand
All have their eyes on that evil capt'n

Fifteen Men on the dead man's chest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum
Drink and the devil had done for the rest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum

It's the ghost of poor Bill and of brave capt'n Flint
Guardin' the treasure on that isle of sin
They're don't come back from the place of the dead
To haunt ole Long John and rogues of his kin

Fifteen Men on the dead man's chest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum
Drink and the devil had done for the rest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum

Silver was brave, let there be no mistake
He'd shoot ya dead in a blind of his eye
No gold and no duff shall ye men ever take
As long as long John has his hand in the pie

Fifteen Men on the dead man's chest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum
Drink and the devil had done for the rest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum

We'll all dance a jig on the gallery of death
On hangman's wharf, a rope 'round our neck
You George Merry and you John Forest
So near to the gallows, near taken my breath

Fifteen Men on the dead man's chest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum
Drink and the devil had done for the rest
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rhum
