Explanation:
could it be CLEAN PIRATE JOKES?? The joke seems to refer to a pirate who wore red shirts before every battle so that his men wouldn't see if he were bleeding, which could make him not only a hero but something that is very hard to find...a clean pirate!! :)
Perhaps the verses you have there make a reference to it, and if it was a transcription, maybe the person heard "jolts" instead of "jokes"?? It's the only thing I have found that could make a little sense. Hope this helps or someone else gives you a great answer! BTW, here's the joke:

Long ago there lived a brave seafarer named Captain Bravo. He was a courageous man who showed no fear in facing his enemies.

One day, while sailing the seven seas, a look-out spotted a pirate ship, and the crew became frantic. Captain Bravo bellowed, "Bring me my
red shirt."

The First Mate quickly retrieved the captain's red shirt, and, after donning the shirt, the captain led his crew into battle and defeated the pirates.

Later on, the look-out spotted not one, but two pirate ships. The captain again yelled for his red shirt and once again vanquished the pirates.

That evening, all the men sat around on the deck recounting the day's triumphs, and one of them asked the captain: "Sir, why did you call for your red shirt before each battle?"

The captain replied: "If I am wounded in the attack, my crew won't notice my bleeding and will continue to fight, unafraid."

All of the men sat in silence and marveled at the courage of their captain. As dawn came the next morning, the look-out spotted not one, not two, but TEN pirate ships approaching. The rank and file all stared at the captain and waited for his usual request.

Captain Bravo calmly shouted: "Bring me my brown pants!"
