Pirate Songs for Kids
We’ve picked out some of our absolute favorite pirate songs for kids, and we hope you love them. Stick around for the pirate songs for preschoolers! They’re an amazing way to learn educational concepts, like counting and the alphabet, through fun pirate songs.
How to Stream Music in the Classroom or at Home
If you want to get songs without the ads from YouTube, there are a couple simple solutions. You can click the songs directly from this post, and it should take away most of the ads. Screen it first to make sure it works for your needs.
If you are using just audio, I have Amazon Music Unlimited. It isn’t free, but well worth it for me because we use it each day between the classroom and home. If you would want to download more than 10 songs a month, it’s worth its weight in gold!
It’s compatible with your phone, electronic devices, Alexa, and computer. What’s great is that I can download the songs while I’m home on my phone using wifi with the Amazon Music app. Then the songs are always there on my phone, and I can play them in the classroom, the car, or anywhere else.
There is also a 2 million song music library with Amazon Prime. That’s how I started, but then I eventually switched to Amazon Music Unlimited because it has nearly every song.
For a FREE printable list of favorite kids’ songs, sign up below and we’ll send it right to you! It’s a great resource to have on hand for moments all through the day when a song would be helpful. We even include a digital version with YouTube links!
Silly Pirate Song | Jack Hartmann
Jack Hartmann has one of the most popular pirate songs for kids! It may not seem like it, but this song is full of learning. Trying to remember each of the interrupting friends in reverse order is called sequencing, and it’s a great skill for kids (and adults)! The tune is so catchy that everyone will be singing along in no time.
Pirate Song for Children | Patty Shukla
This pirate song is just fun, and sometimes that’s all you need in a song! Join Patty and her merry gang as they sail away to find some treasures.
Pirate Zoom, Zoom, Zoom | Jbrary
“Zoom, zoom, zoom, we’re going to the moon!” is a popular preschool circle time song that you may be familiar with. This takes the same melody and puts it to a super fun pirate theme. Jbrary has the best songs for circle time!
The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything Remix | VeggieTales
I have sung this silly song many times, even as an adult! It’s super catchy and fun. VeggieTales are normally animated, but this remix adds in real people and is just as amazing. Be sure to stick around for the “pirates who dance!”
We are the Pirates | Bounce Patrol
I think this is one of the best original pirate songs for kids! I really like the melody, but it’s full of learning, too! There are a TON of rhyming words hidden throughout. “This is our tale…rigging up the sail.” “Young and free…you and me.” What other rhyming words can your kids find?
Pirate Rock Recipe | Jake and the Never Land Pirates
Disney Junior shows have some FANTASTIC music. I once caught my husband rapping “Blue Ribbon Bunny” from Sofia the First at the top of his lungs when no one else was home!
This song from Jake and the Never Land Pirates is about all the instruments you need to make a pirate rock song, and I love it! It breaks down all the sounds the different instruments make. Anything that gets kids interested in different instruments is a win in my book! (Don’t be fooled by the grainy screenshot below, the actual video is great quality.)
Pirate Songs for Preschoolers
Over the Deep Blue Sea | Super Simple Songs
This is a great pirate song for preschoolers or even toddlers. It’s very repetitive, which is perfect for younger kids so they can sing along quickly! It has lots of fun learning opportunities, such as types of weather and directions such as up and down.
The Pirate Life | GoNoodle
This is a slightly harder version of the last song, “Over the Deep Blue Sea.” They count to 10 instead of naming types of weather, and it’s also much faster! Faster = more fun and more opportunity for hilarity. This is great to sing when you need a good movement and action song to get some wiggles out.
If You Want to Be a Pirate | The Kiboomers
This one is a perfect pirate song for toddlers! It’s to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It.” Putting new words to a familiar tune is a GREAT way to teach a new song to kids because they’re already familiar with the tune and just have to learn the new lyrics! It gives instant recognition and buy-in. This one is also another great movement song.
When You…Add, Subtract, and Subitize…with a Pirate | Harry Kindergarten
Harry Kindergarten has a cute set of math skills videos with a pirate theme. I hesitate to call them “pirate songs” because some of them, like the subitizing video, don’t really have a melody so aren’t really a song! BUT they’re a super cute, fun, pirate-themed way to practice basic math skills, so I thought they deserved to be included.
Alphabet Pirates | Bounce Patrol
Bounce Patrol is back with another great ABC song! We love their themed alphabet songs so much that we’ve also included them in our lists of space songs and farm songs. They teach not only the letter names but their phonetic sounds as well, as they point out things that start with each letter. It’s a great alphabet song as well as a pirate song!
After you’ve exhausted the pirate songs, keep the music going in your classroom with these song cards and song sticks from our store! There are 35 song posters that can be used as song cards, along with matching song sticks to make choosing songs for circle time even more fun. They are perfect songs for preschoolers, kindergarteners, and any child who loves to sing.
