Yo Ho Hero is a song from The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything. It was performed by Steve Taylor and the Newsboys.


Raise the mast on the steadfast! Swept to their bareback seahorse Say they gonna try the sea course Who could survive such a dangerous mission Alongside pirates with zero ambition

We got the coconuts poured We drop the hooks overboard And if you get a little seasick We play the Haddock for a Hat trick

We got the hammocks on the main deck Swingin' low We got the butler doin' the hen-peck Screamin' so He say we shoulda been swabbin' the poop deck We dunno It's what the other pirates do do But we're bringin' you

Yo ho heroes Standin' in the gap Where'd you put the toys Time to take a nap

Yo Ho heroes Flighty as a bird Easy is the word Yo, I'm seein' no heroes

We're on a limbo craze It's a relic from our limber days Now we're stuck inside the Limbo-Zone Its where the pirates go with too much time and a missing spine

Yo ho heroes Standing in the gap Where'd you put the map Take another nap

Yo ho heroes Strike a better pose That's the way it goes Yo, I'm seein' no heroes

We're on the Bad Mood Swing We haven't done one thing Not even a minimum daily requirement We got the funk without the Parliament

And if you're feelin' a little seasick rizeandshine And if you wanna get off the guilt trip Now's the time Because the Captain of the Main Ship Rings the chime He could be comin' before you know Him What are you gonna show Him

Go hero! Standing in the gap Takin' up the slack Followin' the King's Map

Go hero! Steady as a rock I know it's a shock Yo, there be a hero

Go hero! Standin' in the gap Takin' up the slack Followin' the King's Map

Go hero! Steady at the wheel Keep an even keel Yo, there be the King's hero
