My desire should be for a prince

Someone strong and brave

Buttoned up and tight laced

Practical and predictable

But to me, all this is despicable

Who can understand a woman’s heart?

A prince would be the obvious choice

But that’s not the man of my heart’s voice

What does it want?

What does it need?

A pirate, yes, a pirate indeed

One whose unpredictability

Comes alive on the raging sea

He doesn’t fear night or day

Uses the stars to guide our way

Many wish to make him pay

For what he’s done under the sun’s rays

Come what might and come what may

In his arms, I will lay

For he loves all my pain away

I don’t care what you say

I’ll take my pirate over a prince any dayOf Princes and Pirates
