Ahoy, you scurvy scalliwags!

In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day and Church Nerd’s impending ordination, I repost a personal favorite:

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pastor’s life for me!
We pray, we profess we teach and we plan,
(Drink up me hearties, yo ho!)
We pastor and baptize in faraway lands.
(Drink up me hearties, yo ho)

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pastor’s life for me!
We fundraise, we marry and bury and bless,
(Drink up me hearties, yo ho)
We listen and love ’em when sins they confess.
(Drink up me hearties yo ho)

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pastor’s life for me!
We’re nerdy, and geeky and never quite cool,
(Drink up me hearties yo ho)
We’ve tons of ideas from the’logical school.
(Drink up me hearties yo ho)

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pastor’s life for me!
We wait for a word that’ll tell us just where,
(Drink up me hearties, yo ho)
We pack up our lives just to minister there.
(Drink up me hearties, yo ho)

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a pastor’s life for me!
And under our robes we’re still as human as you
(Drink up me hearties, yo ho!)
Here’s to Church Nerd who will join the “Revs” soon…
(Drink up me hearties, yo ho)
