The Dread Pirate Yellow Beard!!

Off the coast of the Isla Doubloon, our captain Yellowbeard did reap the rewards of the open sea and pursue with steadfast doggedness the vile captain Verde.  Verde did succumb to the cannon and blade of Yellowbeard much to his personal chagrin and honour.  There was not  that could be done against Yellowbeards desire for gold and glory. And now poor Captain Verde is known as the dice-straught sailor.  Sing it with me lads.  Follow the bouncing cannon ball....
 "Hail to Yellowbeard."
A golden win.

Dice-straught Sailor - heaving shanty

What shall we do with a dice-straught sailor?
What shall we do with a dice-straught sailor?
What shall we do with a dice-straught sailor?
Early in the morning?
Way-hay, up she rises
Way-hay, up she rises
Way-hay, up she rises
Early in the morning

Put him in the long boat 'til he's sober
Pull out the bung and wet him all over
Put him in the scuppers with the deck pump on him
Heave him by the leg in a runnin' bowlin'
Tie him to the taffrail when she's yard-arm under
