Scooter and Crash were two pirates at sea

But neither was very good at it you see

Crash bumps and breaks almost everything he touches

And Scooter likes to drive if he can get the wheel in his clutches


They both were poor swordsman

And their demeanor was dreary

Their shooting…horrendous

They made the captain quite weary


But Scooter and Crash loved the wide-open water

They should settle down, have a son or a daughter

They didn’t fit in with the rest of the crew

But being a pirate was all they knew how to do


The ship landed on an island

With palm trees galore

Some crew took a boat

And they rowed it ashore


Scooter and Crash went through the trees

What they saw there brought them to their knees

A treasure mound, piled high and tall

Diamonds and rubies, enough for them all


Yippee, Yahoo, and Golly Gee Whiz

The pirates all danced a new jig

The sang a few songs, yo ho’d it up

Then brought it all back to their rig


The Captain, he praised them

Commended and raised them

From lowly men up to first mates

Even got them a couple of dates


Then Scooter and Crash

Rich in pockets and hearts

Became men of the world

And they made fresh new starts


They bought nice new houses

Up near Trinidad way

And the last that I heard

They are there to this day

Well that’s what they say

(or their kids anyway)
