Yo ho brave lads
set sail with me
for one last jolly jape
we set a course on this fine day
destination death and ruin.
For if we be the last free crew on these seven seas
We’ll depart this life with such glorious adventure
long after our bones are gone to dust
songs be sung and tales be told bout the good old lady Jane
So sail for glory
sail for treasure
sail for the thrill of the fight
or whatever else gives ya black souls peace
Not for us the slow decay of old age
or the hangman’s unforgiving noose.
We’ll sail endlessly on these deep seas
on the good old Lady Jane.
Mark me good lads ,
that once we’ve gone
the world will never see our like again
So load them canon
prime them pistols
and sharpen all ye swords
This night we face our final trial and all our guts be spilled
and if we take a few down too
then damn them all to hell
So sail with me once more brave lads
we gentleman of fortune
we’ll sing a song of women and rum
till last man drops
and Jane be sunk
and all our journeys said and done.
