Instead of a hand, I've got a hook,
Splitting black teeth under growing soot, the ocean bleeds like a child's foot,
and I eat live squid, every day,
It makes me sick I'm sorry to say,
My dirty old hook.

I'm running my hook, down your limp body,
Then you turn and look, at the hook, your ringing tears beg to be free,
When I tear a fat hole into your leg,
The boils of blood spit like an egg,

On this ship I've cursed the sea, an ocean of death it runs to me,
But the earth in fear is not enough, for the rotting skin from the storms above,
So remember my name 'cause its the same,
as the clock ticks it will drive you insane...

I'm captain hook!
I'm captain hook!
I'm captain hook!
I'm captain hook!

And when I come to die, they will tell lies of gouging eyes,
from the crocodile and the sperm whale, but by the end of my grim tale,
They will understand the things I've seen,
my lonely life an evil dream...

I'm captain hook.
