I am the Very Model of a Gallifreyan Buccaneer, sung by Colin Baker.
(Click for song)

Pirate: You're no pirate!
Doctor: I take that as a compliment. You're quite right - I never could rob and cheat and kill like you do... but if you're saying I don't know what it's like to be outlawed for roaming the world, exploring, gathering knowledge, fighting with my wits... well, then, you're completely wrong.
Pirate: No, I meant the robbing, cheating and killing thing.
Doctor: Ah-ha! Then you have never truly appreciated what it is to be a buccaneer! Let me explain a few things to you. For you see, one could almost say that I am the very model of a Gallifreyan buccaneer.
*music swells*
Evelyn: Oh no! You are going to sing!
Doctor: Well, yes. I am!

(Doctor in regular, chorus in italics, speaking in smaller type)

I am the very model of a Gallifreyan buccaneer
I've information on all things a Gallifreyan holds most dear
I've linked into the Matrix through its exitonic circuitry
I understand dimensional and relative chronometry

I'm very well acquainted too with matters of the Capitol
I'll give you verse and chapter on Panopticonian protocol
I've been into the Death Zone and I've played the game of Rassilon
- Rassilon? ... Vassilon? Bassilon? Ah-ha! -
With pestilential monsters that I got a lot of hassle from
With pestilential monsters that he got a lot of hassle from
With pestilential monsters that he got a lot of hassle from
With pestilential monsters that he got a lot of hassle-hassle from


I understand each language and I speak every vernacular
I'll conjugate each verb obscure, decline each line irregular
In short in every matter that a Gallifreyan holds most dear
I am the very model of a Gallifreyan buccaneer
In short in every matter that a Gallifreyan holds most dear
He is the very model of a Gallifreyan buccaneer


I've tackled shady Castellans with devious behaviour
I've sparred with Time Lord Chancellors like Thalia, Goth or Flavia
In fact on some occasions I've held office presidentially
Though maybe I won't mention I was ousted out eventually

I know just how it feels to be a wanted man and on the run
But wouldn't leave the carefree buccaneering life for anyone
Though sometimes my adventures seem absurdly operatical
- Operatical? ... Hattical? Tattical? Ah-ha! -
With ups and downs and twists and turns and incidents piratical
With ups and downs and twists and turns and incidents piratical
With ups and downs and twists and turns and incidents piratical
With ups and downs and twists and turns and incidents pirati-ratical


I've sailed the seven seas of Earth and all the oceans of the moon
My trusty true Type 40 is my Gallifreyan picaroon
But is this really what the average Gallifreyan holds most dear?
I wonder what they'd think about this Gallifreyan buccaneer
But is this really what the average Gallifreyan holds most dear?
We wonder what they'd think about this Gallifreyan buccaneer


(slow) But - I've defeated evil robots such as Daleks, Quarks and Cybermen
I've overthrown dictators from Tobias Vaughn to Mavic Chen
I've rescued helpless maidens from the devastating Viking hordes
Vanquished Autons, Axons, Daemons, Krotons, Monoids, Vampires, Voords
I've liberated planets and delivered them from total war
Saved Earth, Manussa, Dulkis, Skonnos, Earth, Tigella, Earth once more
In short I know I am the truest Rassilonian legatee
- Legatee? ... Degatee? Hecate? ... Hecate? Hmm. Not sure if that's canonical. Ah-ha! I have it -
(normal speed) And so to Time Lords all I say, remember me to Gallifree
A sentiment we all agree, remember him to Gallifree
A sentiment we all agree, remember him to Gallifree
A sentiment we all agree, remember him to Galli-Gallifree


I'm not content to just observe, I am a bold adventurer
Though other Time Lords mock this Gallifreyan interventioner
I know in every matter that a Time Lord really should hold dear
I am the very model of a Gallifreyan buccaneer
We know in every matter that a Time Lord really should hold dear
He is the very model of a Gallifreyan buccaneer


Pirate: All of which goes to prove what I said - that you will never make a pirate!
Doctor: Well, excuse me for not killing people for fun!
