Karliene – Calico Jack Lyrics

Calico Jack Lyrics – Karliene

It was a borin’
Evenin’
Down at the tavern
My husband left for sea again
And I was sick of waitin’

Sick of drinkin’
And thinkin’
And questioning my measure
Then suddenly
A breeze came through the door

He was smilin’
Blindin’
The pirate, Jack Rackham
He tipped his hat and that was that
I was in love with him

Good lookin’
And charmin’
A winner with the women
Stealin ships and hearts in every port

Calico Jack
Calico Jack
I’ve never met a man here
looking like that

Calico Jack
You’ve met your match
Calico Jack
Won’t you give me my heart back

Hmm, Calico
Calico Jack
Hmm, Calico
Calico Jack

He said
‘Oh, you’re a fine looking woman’
He said
‘How’d you like to come away with me?’
I said
‘Ok, I’m intrigued, I’m listening
But you should know I’m wed to Jim Bonny’

He said
‘Oh really, Jim Bonny?
Word is he treats you badly
A drunken fool who beats on you
No, get out quickly
My darlin’
Stop waiting
You’re a ship made for sailing

Take the wheel and sail her out of port
He said
Take the wheel and sail her out of port
He said
Take the wheel and sail her out of port

Calico Jack
Calico Jack
I’ve never met a man here
looking like that

Calico Jack
You’ve met your match
Calico Jack
Won’t you give me my heart back

Hmm, Calico
Calico Jack
Hmm, Calico
Calico Jack
