"Dave Parker Was a Pirate"
lyrics by John Foti
music by John Foti and Nils d'Alaire

Dave Parker was a pirate, a Pittsburgh Pirate, and a pirate he still be
6 foot 5, a helluva guy from Calhoun, Mississippi

Twas a magic year in '79 when he hit .310 and homered all the time
he won the world series, he got a gold glove
but that's not all he grabbed....

He took it to the Indians, he took it to the Cubs
the Tigers and the Braves, and a bunch of other clubs
but he didn't stop there, no he had another flair
for a girl with a twirl and some ham in her hair !

OH! Dave Parker was a pirate, a Pittsburgh Pirate, and a pirate he still be
"pork a lotta hoes and snort a lotta blow" was his motto and his dream...oh

Annoucer Voice:
Nicknamed "The Cobra," Dave Parker made his major league debut exactly 3 years ago tomorrow, July 12th!!! And he suuuure did get around...

He played for the Reds and he played for the A's
He sucked on the Brewers and he blew on the Jays
He was an Angel, be he wasn't no saint
in the clubhouse, in the clubhouse before games...OH!

Dave Parker was a pirate, a Pittsburgh Pirate, and a pirate he still be
"pork a lotta hoes and snort a lotta blow" was his motto and his dream...oh

What do ya do with a torn hamstring?
Take a lotta pills and get yer wife to swing
Drink a lotta beer and wear bad clothes
Boos from the fans and booze at the pub
boobs on his chest and boobs at the club
So if you wanna make it big, if you wanna be tough
Just blow out your knee and sniff a lotta snuff

OH! Dave Parker was a pirate, a Pittsburgh Pirate, and a pirate he still be
"pork a lotta hoes and snort a lotta blow" was his motto and his dream...oh
OH! Dave Parker was a pirate, a Pittsburgh Pirate, and a pirate he still be
"pork a lotta hoes and snort a lotta blow" was his motto and his dream...oh

Dave Parker was a pirate, a Pittsburgh Pirate, and a pirate he still be
Now he walks around and pouts cause he's gotta bad, bad case of the gout...
in his trailer down in South Jersey.
