From the book My Foot Fell Asleep
The meanest old pirate to sail the seas,
was a pirate named "Dangerous Dan."
Old Dan had an eye-patch to cover his eye,
and a hook where he once had a hand.
But that was before he had been introduced
to the pirate they called "Loathsome Lance,"
who proudly wore patches on both of his eyes,
and had hooks upon both of his hands.
But neither of them was a fraction as mean
as the pirate dubbed "Perilous Pete."
For Pete wore an eye-patch that covered his head
and had hooks on his hands and his feet!
