We got sixteen men on a dead man's chest
And I shot those suckers and I'll shoot the rest

from Beastie Boys – Rhymin' and Stealin' Lyrics on Rap Genius


A play on the Dead Man’s Chest rhyme: “Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest…Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum! Drink and the devil had done for the rest…Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!”.
