Originally released as a 7" single (1989)

It's kind of like reggae, and it was recorded on DTI Records, which is ironic if you realize that the UK's anti-pirate enforcement agency used to be named the same thing.

If anyone knows where a higher-quality version of this track can be found (or can provide one themselves), please let me know.

Lyrics:

Pirate, pirate, pirate
Go on, legalize it
Pirate, pirate, pirate
Go on, legalize it
Realize that

We love to hear the reggae music
We love to hear the soul music
We love to hear the ragga music
We love to hear the rock music
Takes all kinds of music
To satisfy the people who use it
Takes all kinds of stations
To truly reflect the state of the nation
Oh yeah
One just isn't enough
Make a little room for more
One just isn't enough
Make a little room for us

Pirate, pirate, pirate
Go on, legalize it, legalize it
Pirate, pirate, pirate
Go on, legalize it
Realize that

We love to hear the rebel music
We come to sing the rap music
We come to hear the world music
And that's an awful lot of music
Takes all kinds of music
To satisfy the people who use it
Takes all kinds of stations
To truly reflect the state of the nation
Oh yeah
One just isn't enough
Make a little room for us
One just isn't enough
Make a little room for more

Oh pirate, pirate, pirate
Go on, legalize it, legalize it
Pirate, pirate, pirate
Go on, legalize it, realize it, legalize it
