Nursery rhymes about pirate health and safety

Whittle, Whittle Pirate (Diddle Diddle Dumpling)
Whittle, whittle, pirate Pegleg Greg,
Sat right down on a powder keg.
One leg’s wood and one’s of bone,
Couldn’t fi nd either when the keg was blown.

Captain Clapton (Humpty Dumpty)
Captain Clapton fought in a brawl,
Captain Clapton got hit with a maul,
All the ship’s doctors and all the ship’s crew,
Buried the captain and bid him adieu.

The Dirty, Scurvy Pirate (The Itsy Bitsy Spider)
The dirty, scurvy pirate got a case of gout,
A painful inflammation that often made him shout.
Every day at noon, the puss he drain’d,
Twas the only thing he found that could help him ease his pain.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Scar (Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star)
Twinkle, twinkle, little scar,
How I got you was bizarre,
Now I know it isn’t fun,
To get shot up with a gun.

Twinkle, twinkle, little scar,
How I got you was bizarre!
When you’re cleaning out the barrel,
You look in it at your peril,
Always make sure it’s not loaded,
Cause in my face it exploded.
Twinkle, twinkle, little scar,
How I got you was bizarre!
