The Booty Boogie is a song sung by Kaptain Skurvy, with Kutlass and Green Kroc as backup singers, during the episode "Bug a Boogie" from the Donkey Kong Country animated series. Just after Cranky Kong has Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong leave his cabin as a practical joke, the scene immediately transitions to the pirates' ship and they start to sing.

Lyrics[]

SKURVY:
If ya ask me mother, she'll say, "Ah, he's not so bad"
But when I left the house, I took everything she had
I took 'er silver and 'er gold, and scoffed 'er weddin' band
I even took 'er aprons and 'er copper pots and pans

KUTLASS & GREEN KROC:
Lyin', lootin', stealin'

SKURVY:
Is the reason I'm a pirate!

KUTLASS & GREEN KROC:
Ransackin', pillagin'

SKURVY:
Don't knock it 'til you try it!

KUTLASS & GREEN KROC:
Plundering and pilferin'

SKURVY:
Make up a healthy diet!
Arrh, look at me! I'm doin' the Booty Boogie!
No treasure is too big; I'd scarf the peaks of Kilimanjaro
As well as raid the tomb, and steal the mummy from a pharaoh,
I'd swipe the Crown Jewels, and Merlin's crystal ball,
But the Crystal Coconut is the daddy of 'em all!
If you want a job with all the riches you can stand,
And all o' the security of a great pension plan,
Arrh! Then come aboard!

ALL:
Lyin', lootin', stealin' is the reason we are pirates!
Ransackin', pillagin', don't knock it 'til you try it!
Plunderin' and pilferin' make up a healthy diet,
Arrh, look at us! We're doin' the Booty Boogie!
Arrh, from sea to sea! We're doin' the Booty Boogie!

SKURVY:
Arr...

KUTLASS:
Heh-heh, what a nice-a song.

GREEN KROC:
Mais, oui.
