Pirate's Scorn is a song sung by Kaptain Skurvy aboard his pirate ship, with Green Kroc and Kutlass as backup singers, at the very beginning of the episode "Booty and the Beast", from the Donkey Kong Country animated series.

Lyrics

SKURVY:
Arrh, when I was a young lad, my father said to me
"Arrh, lend an ear and learn some pirate history!
Once a fearsome pirate ruled the seven seas
He was your great-great-great-grandpappy, Quint Skurvy!"
He told me tall tales of his ill-begotten gains
But the greatest treasure of them all still haunts me to this day!

SKURVY, GREEN KROC & KUTLASS:
I'll make you swab the deck and then I'll throw you in the brig!
I swear I'll make you walk the plank to right the wrong you did!
The day you mess with Skurvy, arrh, you'll wish you were never born!
When the Coconut is mine, then you'll feel this pirate's scorn!

SKURVY:
He hid it in an idol where it stayed for many years
But the eye of Inka Dinka Doo did shed the crystal tear
It lay upon the ground until, much to my surprise
A stupid ape just wandered by and snatched my treasured prize
He discovered it possessed extraordinary power
But stealing it from Skurvy would be his darkest hour!

SKURVY, GREEN KROC & KUTLASS:
I'll make you swab the deck and then I'll throw you in the brig!
I swear I'll make you walk the plank to right the wrong you did!
The day you mess with Skurvy, arrh, you'll wish you were never born!
When the Coconut is mine, then you'll feel this pirate's scorn!
When the Coconut is mine, then you'll feel this pirate's scorn!

SKURVY:
Arrh

Trivia

  • The Scottish heavy metal band Alestorm[1], known for their pirate-themed songs, released a cover of the song "Pirate's Scorn" on May 29, 2020, with both of them sharing the same name.[2]
    • In fact, the album featuring the song is called "Curse of the Crystal Coconut"[3]. Besides being named after the Crystal Coconut, the relic featured in the Donkey Kong Country animated series, the front cover artwork for the album depicts a pirate skeleton staring at a crystal resembling the design of the Crystal Coconut in the game Donkey Kong 64 for Nintendo 64.
