In a rowdy fucking tavern On the outskirts of Tortuga Lives a fair and comely maiden With a heart of Spanish gold I asked her would she take My extended hook in marriage? With a blunderbuss she relayed her thoughts of our true matrimony We’ll drink ‘til we die We’ll pillage and plunder We’ll sink in the sky We’ll pass the bottle round We’ll drink ‘til we die We’ll dance through the night They won’t take us alive So pass the bottle ‘round Drink In the back room of a brothel In the backstreets of Port Royal Lives a fair and comely maiden... (Aye, if you’ve necked two pints of rum!) I asked her would she take My extensive salty cargo She cleared her throat and she said “My God!” “Can’t you see me vessels full?” We’ll drink ‘til we die We’ll pillage and plunder We’ll sink in the sky We’ll pass the bottle round We’ll drink ‘til we die We’ll dance through the night They won’t take us alive So pass the bottle ‘round Drink Now tethered in the dockyard Lies a most expansive maiden All curves and buried treasures Aye, volumious booty! I asked her would she mind If I shipped aboard her poopdeck? She cried “Of course! Now climb aboard!” “And chart this briny deep!” We’ll drink ‘til we die We’ll pillage and plunder We’ll sink in the sky We’ll pass the bottle round We’ll drink ‘til we die We’ll dance through the night They won’t take us alive So pass the bottle ‘round

We drink our ales together lads To pillage and to plunder The Spaniards and the Englishmen That we have cut asunder All those who we’ve served our time That lay beneath the waves And all those that we’ve fought against That writhe now in their graves We salute all of the fallen We piss on those that stand Hoist the colours Trim the sails And rove to better lands So bring me the wenches And pass me the rum We’ll fight and fuck And cut and curse Until the night is done! And we drink our rum together lads In a tavern soaked with blood To all the rotten bastards That we’ve trampled in the mud All those who we’ve served our time That lay beneath the waves And all those that we’ve fought against That writhe now in their graves We salute all of the fallen We piss on those that stand Hoist the colours Trim the sails And rove to better lands Yo Ho Ho And a bottle of rum

All For Rum 03:59
Well a man needs rum Like a ship needs the sea Like the sparrow needs the sky Like the whores need me Any pleasure of life Don't compare can't you see? To being good and drunk and free! And it's all for rum And rum for all! All for rum And rum for all! So we raise our glasses And watch them fall All for rum And rum for all And it's rum for young And rum for old Rum for weak And rum for strong! Rum for the drunk Facedown on the floor Rum for the Captain's whore! And it's all for rum And rum for all! All for rum And rum for all! So we raise our glasses And watch them fall All for rum And rum for all But when the last drop is drunk And the rum's all gone The sky turns dark And your face forlorn Four horsemen appear Herald death 'cross the land 'Til the saviour leans down With a bottle in his hand! And it's rum for all!

Well a good wench she won’t Turn you in tomorrow She won’t share your bed Then whistle for the law Well a good lass she’ll stand at your side With blunderbuss and cutlass high The navy better run for their fucking lives! Well I’m not the only one With a weapon in my pants But I’m never gonna quit ‘Til your booty’s in my hands Slide down the mainsail And what do I see? A peg-leg woman Come walkin’ up to me She screams “No Quarter!” And I’ll not fail Dead Men tell no tales Well a tavern wench has always got her assets She won’t pilfer coins Nor water down the rum Well a good lass She just lets it flow The taps will turn ‘Til the morning comes This tavern’s gonna rock The fucking world! Well I’m not the only one With a weapon in my pants But I’m never gonna quit ‘Til your booty’s in my hands Slide down the mainsail And what do I see? A peg-leg woman Come walkin’ up to me She screams “No Quarter!” And I’ll not fail Dead Men tell no tales Well a lady pirate Has to be a warrior Sending broken hearts To Davey Jones Well the pirate’s life’s The life for her God help the men That hold her down She'll smash and burn Then blow this fucking town! Well I’m not the only one With a weapon in my pants But I’m never gonna quit ‘Til your booty’s in my hands Slide down the mainsail And what do I see? A peg-leg woman Come walkin’ up to me She screams “No Quarter!” And I’ll not fail Dead Men tell no tales

On Our Knees 03:48
When the drink like a candle Melts through your insides As campfires pass the burden To the morning sunlight The piled pale bodies Stretch across the shoreline Yes this is the life We are fighting for! A fair maidens breath Caresses your chest Her soft golden tresses In scarred arms do rest But the coins are all gone And your lies are well worn Oh now you must find A great ship to sail on Our life here is hard But we do as we please The justice is rough But the love here is free Send the dogs of old England To snap at my feet If they catch me out here They won’t find me On my knees We toil in the belly Of a great wooden beast The Devil’s Revenge Tastes forever sweet Now the winds they do howl And the black seas do foam And onward and onward And onward we go... A fair maidens breath Escapes to the sky Screams tangled in rigging Her old husband dies As despite all our warnings They chose to defy And now up to heaven Their black souls will rise Our life here is hard But we do as we please The justice is rough But the love here is free Send the dogs of old England To snap at my feet If they catch me out here They won’t find me On my knees

Sea Of Fire 04:08
A crew of cursed pirates we be Sailing on a rotting sea Our flesh it hangs but loose and free Salted, pickled, fly-blown We had our chance to chart our course Avoid the wrath of many gods We chose to spit and curse and worse Upon our many tidings Now soft repose and pleasant dreams Remember me between yer screams And let my soul roam loose and free While manacles constrain me And all the damned They hear me words And none more welcome Than yerselves See your rotten souls in hell Sail the sea of fire Toured the whores of Port Royal Shared the spoils of Spanish Gold 
But damn yer eyes there just ain’t no Release for our desires! My respects to all those under thee They’ll topple you before they’ll kneel As my face it grinds unto the keel You’ll dance the hempen jig, friend Now speak me of your tidings, Kidd 
Remind me of the life ye’ve led Remember what’s to lose and beg Me mercy for yer women The Captain’s head hangs From the mast He’s raped and killed and boozed his last Took all but a cannon blast 
To sever soul from body And all the damned They hear me words And none more welcome Than yerselves See your rotten souls in hell Sail the sea of fire
