Magpie 68 (heard at an old pirate's home).

Bluebeard’s Lament or…
‘Left without a leg to stand on’.










During a melee at sea
So wounded, unfor-tu-nate-ly,
He can’t sign the leases
For rented prostheses.
‘cause he has no hands and can’t see!

Shh! He still has his Buccaneers

Get another eyeful at Magpie Tales.
