An exclamation, of surprise or otherwise. This phrase originated from when the water or a canon would hit the ship, and the ship would shake. Hence, shivering, and timbers being the actual ship.

Pirate for "shake my bones". Used during times of crises like, bad storms, pillaging gone wrong or seeing an ugly wench. Generally a non-wuss way of saying "I'm a-scared!"

What most people don't know is that the pirate saying "shiver me timbers" actually means to "brake the boat". You see timber is obviously wood. The word shiver is to break or split, also referring to a fragment or splinter. In other words "split my wood". This term would most likely be used in an attack from another pirate ship. It does not mean the following: getting laid, an exclamation of surprise, or that you are cold. However most people do use it as an exclamation of surprise.

From olden days when pirates visited the olde inns and requested the service of prostitutes. The actual term means ‘rapidly stroke my hard penis’. Rapidly stroking like a shiver and hard penis or ‘wood’. Wood also known as timber.
