Sitting on the cliff above, looking at the sea.

The young man with no name wondered, just what he would be?

He grew up on the island, surrounded by the sea.

He did not know his name of if he had a family.

He sat in meditation, when something caught his eyes.

Out in the bay sat a pirate ship with the skull head flag flying high.

He heard the pirates singing while pulling down the mask.

He sat intrigued as such a sight, just thought about their task.

The adventures of a pirate! Now he knew what he must be.

To capture all the gold on earth and sail the seven seas!

He snuck down from his cliff above where he ever seldom left.

For the boy with no name, was on a special quest.

He waited till the darkness came, swam out in the cove.

He climbed her in the darkness, moving very slow.

He knew exactly what to do and sailed straight from the cove.

Now he was her captain and fired her guns at shore.

At the pirates on the beach would be marooned forever more.


Once out in the open sea, he knew just what to do.

First he had to sail to ports and find himself a crew.

They had to be all nasty, not afraid and very strong.

Fight to the death and get all drunk and know every pirates song.

Soon he had himself a crew, the meanest, dirtiest, scoundrels that ever sailed the seas.

There was one thing missing, his name, what shall it be?

He called himself Captain Know, for reasons that you will see.

He wanted everyone to know and fear the meanest pirate that sailed the seas.

For years they plundered and they pillaged every ship that they would see.

Just like all the pirates and every story ends.

Captain Know just disappeared never to be seen again.

The legions grew and grew until this very day.

About the boy with no name became the fiercest pirate in every way.

And all would tremble in great fear just the mention of this foe.

This is why he picked that name, so everyone would Know!
