Listening task to another version of the Pirate Song, aka Dead Man's Chest, by Two Monkeys. "Dead Man's Chest" (also known as Fifteen Men On The Dead Man's Chest or Derelict) is a fictional sea-song, originally from Robert Louis Stevenson's novel Treasure Island (1883). Here's the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVHjfQ0JsVQ
You can start the song to get students interested. Then do the pre-task (cut it off the handout). Students work with a partner, then finish a few sentences about pirates. Discuss the answers with the class, or have the pairs mingle and share with other pairs. Finally, listen to the song and fill in the gaps.
The second page contains the full lyrics.
