> Could someone.. ANYONE.. send me the lyrics for the song "Shiver My
> Timbers"? It's the second song on the soundtrack of 'muppet treasure
> island.' This would help me a lot.. thanks.

Billy Bones (spoken):

I was Flynt’s first mate that voyage, three days east of Tortolla, in the Caribee. Flynt knew an island. That’s where we buried the treasure: gold and blood. They were Flynt’s trademarks. He’d leave both behind him that day.


Shiver my timbers, shiver my soul ..

Yo ho, heave ho.

There are men whose hearts are as black as coal ..

Yo ho, heave ho.

And they sailed their ship ‘cross the ocean blue,

A blood-thirsty Captain and a cutthroat crew.

It’s as dark a tale as was ever told

Of the lust for treasure and the love of gold …

Shiver my timbers, shiver my sides ..

Yo ho, heave ho.

There are hungers as strong as the winds and tides ..

Yo ho, heave ho.

And those buccaneers drowned their sins in rum,

The devil himself would have to call them scum;

Every man aboard would have killed his mate

For a bag of guineas or a piece of eight ..

(A piece of eight … a piece of eight … 5, 6, 7,

Oola-waka, moola-waka, something not right,

Many wicked icky things gonna happen tonight.

Oola-waka, moola-waka, sailor-man beware:

When there’s money in the ground

There’s murder in the air …

(Murder in the air … one more time now …)

Shiver my timbers, shiver my bones ..

Yo ho, heave ho.

There are secrets as secret as old Davey Jones ..

Yo ho, heave ho.

When the mainsail’s set and the anchor’s weighed

There’s no turning back from any course that’s laid;

And when greed and villainy sail the sea

You can bet your boots there’ll be treachery.

Shiver my timbers, shiver my sails ..

Dead men tell no tales.
