"Sky Pirates" is a song from the DuckTales episode, "Sky Pirates...in the Sky!", sung by Don Karnage and his band of Air Pirates. It is later sung again when Dewey takes over Don Karnage's crew as the Air Pirates' captain. A shorter version of the song is sung when Dewey blows the pitch pipe to distract the Air Pirates, in which Don Karnage is humiliated when they get distracted when Dewey plans to stall the Air Pirates so Scrooge McDuck's gang can escape with the treasure as they board Launchpad's plane to escape the Iron Vulture, in which Don Karnage yells at them to stop dancing; however, the crew refuses to stop dancing as their ship crashes into a mountain, foiling Karnage and his crew.
Pirate #1: Avast ye lads who be fainthearted!
Chorus: We rule these skies uncharted
Cruel and vicious hearties we
Who sail upon the skies and not the sea!
Don Karnage: 'Tis I who lead this fearsome crew
With dagger, swagger, derring-do!
Handsome and fearsome and suave
Chorus: He's the famous pirate captain
Hoist the flag and weigh the anchors
Circle the ship and pull to flank 'er
Hi-ho, he lives to plunder
Don Karnage: It's true, I live to plunder
Chorus: High up in the sky amidst a sea of storm and thunder
Don Karnage: Now back to me, the main event
A pernicious, vicious raucous gent!
A frustratingly charming blaggart
Chorus: He'll steal all of your treasure and your heart!
Don Karnage: And now we dance! Ha!
Chorus: He's Don Karnage!
Don Karnage: That's me!
Scrooge McDuck: Wait, what?
Chorus: It's Don Karnage!
Don Karnage: Still me! A-ha-ha-ha
Chorus: Pilfer the loot to fill our coffers
Parrot: Been a pleasure to take it off ya!
Chorus: We'll put on a show
Pirate #2: Then steal yer dough!
Chorus: And then into the clouds, away we go
Don Karnage: To the clouds, away I go
Ugly Mug: Prepare ye lads to be surprised
Chorus: The same ol' shanty now reprised
Cruel and vicious hearties we
Who occasionally like to get jazzy
Dewey: 'Tis I who lead this fearsome crewy
With dagger, swagger, derring-
Dewey: Yes, look at me, the main attraction
With stories full of daring action
Perhaps you finally won't ignore us
So bend your ear and hear some from the chorus
Stinky Boot: Ahoy to you, I'm Stinky Boot
Me pride and joy be plunderin' loot
Ugly Mug: Me mateys call me Ugly Mug
But I prefer to go by Jitterbug
Dewey: Alright, that's enough, guys-
Peg Leg Meg: I'm Peg Leg Meg, the ship's first mate
My high kicks truly are first rate
Dewey: Oh, okay-
Hardtack Hattie: There she blows, I'm Hardtack Hattie
Dewey: Maybe just let me take the lead here-
Hardtack Hattie: My dancing skills, they just might drive you batty!
Twins: Bonjour, we're ze twins with a rhythmical knack
And Two-Toothed Jack
Intern: I'm just an intern for the summer
Dewey: Come on!
Intern: But it feels like this song has gone on forever
Dewey: Okay, let's wrap it up.
Ugly Mug: Heave ho, below,
It's time to go!
Chorus: We dearly hope that you liked our show
Ugly Mug: I mean, 'cause yer heart, we already stole
Chorus: We'll open up our ship
And swallow you whole!
Dewey: We'll open up your ship and swallow you whole!
