A Pirate Tonight by Florence Crouse

Tonight I am a pirate
With a dagger in my teeth,
A golden earring in my ear,
A bloody scar beneath.

I swagger down the gangplank,
The scourge of every land,
Sailing o'er the seven seas
While Daddy holds my hand.

Marauding up and down the street,
Besieging every door,
Till terror-stricken villagers
Enrich my treasure store.

Then, when my ship is laden
With mounds of gold and red,
I'll sail back home to Mommy,
And she'll tuck me safe in bed.
