Vagabonds of the Sea

Rebels, murderers, cutthroats, thieves
Modern marauders of the high seas
Enemies of mankind the risks are great
Carving a crimson career magnifique
Sea-going wealth sails unprotected
Lying in wait. It’s ours for the taking
Opportunity or disaster alone at sea
Alight. Desperate slice of society
Most vulnerable ships a potential victim
Wait, lads wait. Can’t you swim?
Wild frontier out at sea
Modern high seas piracy
Ahoy! Every ship in uncharted waters
Beyond laws reach confident mariners
The sea is vast and unforgiving
Free to plunder. Men are drawn to it
Unregulated waters a million miles
A fine big ship once darkness falls
Mon Capitan! Hoist skull and crossbones
With homemade grenades and pistols
Slip aboard aggressive and violent
Crew surrenders without a fight
Bloodied and frightened flee over the side
No defense against cargo crime
What’s this? A private vigilante?
Anyone this channel. May Day! May Day!
Waiting for me with a knife
Abandon the raid. Unlucky strife
He’s out to get me. Hit in the neck
In trouble now. Dropped to the deck
Very well sail on little ship
To hell with them! Died a pirates death
