Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

The Irish Pirate

This song was created for Game of Bands round 129 : "Sea Shanties"

Lyrics:

As a boy I drink whiskey, my old father's curse
Now as a sea farer rum quenches my thirst
I scour the coves and I trawl the warm bays
A thousand miles from home in the shallows I stay
I was born amongst acres of stalks of corn
But I guess I was destined to be the thorn
Kicked out at 16 to go on my own
I stole me a ship and I set out alone

A rod in my hand and salt in my hair
No girls for me. No money, no cares
It was right for a while but then the storms came
They destroyed my village and us salt men were blamed
We had emptied the depths of all the sea's life
Now nature's sweet anger had us paying the price
We were chased from our homes by pitch fork and stone
Ten men looked to me and I chose to roam

So listen ye foolhardy land loving swine
Shunning a fisherman's never divine
He'll take to the seas with fire in his eyes
And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive
We make fire fill the sky
This a pirates way 'til he dies
We make fires fill the sky
And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive

We gathered up fruits, our last meats and grains
We toppled lumber for our own gain
We hid for a fortnight on abandoned beach
And built ourselves a pirate's fleet
Off to horizons to find the beyond
Three black beasts, pine and oak strong
We carry the symbols of the watery grave
No man alive can stop this wave

So listen ye foolhardy land loving swine
Shunning a fisherman's never divine
He'll take to the seas with fire in his eyes
And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive
We make fires fill the skies
This is a pirates way 'til he dies
We make fire and smoke fill the skies
And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive

Listen ye foolhardy land loving swine
Shunning a fisherman's never divine
He'll take to the seas with fire in his eyes
And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive
We make fires fill the skies
This a pirates way til he dies
We make fires fill the skies
And ensure all you cunt fucks burn alive
