Ulli Help: Shiver Me Timbers (21) Shiver Me Timbers 30 Apr 00

There is a Tom Waits song called "Shiver Me Timbers". I have the lyrics/chords but do not really know what that term actually means. I know that it is a nautical term/expression (perhaps pirate term?) but I would like to know the exact meaning and if possible the origin of that phrase. I'm sure there are nautical experts among the Mudcatters who can help me in this matter.
