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

On the sea

This song was created for Game of Bands round 202 : "The Sea"

Lyrics:

Sea, sea, we're out on the sea
It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
Raise your hands and pump your fists!
Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

On my first day on the seas,
I learnt to scrub deck 'n' avoid the fleas
I left a fair maiden upon the mainland
To earn a livin' 'n' put some coin in her hand

Sea, sea, I'm out on the sea
It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
Raise your hands and pump your fists!
Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

Spot through the spyglass a merchant brig
I pull up, throw rope 'n' connect both ships
I spray the brits' blood all over the deck
"We surrender!" is what I hear next
We pillage their spice, leaving quickly in jest

Sea, sea, I'm out on the sea
It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
Raise your hands and pump your fists!
Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

Everyone knows that X marks the spot
With some luck you'll dig a hole free of rot
It happened to me, a great mountain of gold
"A great ration of treasure awaits" is foretold

Sea, sea, we're out on the sea
It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
Raise your hands and pump your fists!
Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

I met a great pirate who went by Blackbeard
He walked with a stick for a leg, yeah he was revered
"A bounty on the beast that gifted me a peg
I want my revenge, so come bring me its head"

Sea, sea, we're out on the sea
It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
Raise your hands and pump your fists!
Don't spare the tale of how we slayed the beast

When we departed we came up with a plan
Fool-proof enough to end the Kraken's lifespan
Confidence brewed as we scouted the seas
Shame it wouldn't be able to beg on its knees

"Kraken spotted!" rung from the crow's nest
No time to be nervous, let's just do our best
A symphony of cannons all combined to one front
An army of swivel guns also, let's not be blunt
As it was wounded we lassoed its hands
Now it was strapped down and couldn't throw hands
To preserve our ship and draw us closer in
We jumped onto our enemy and cut off its skin
We reigned victorious as I cut off its head,
And that was the tale of how we slayed the beast

Sea, sea, we're out on the sea
It's a wonderful criminal's life for me
Raise your hands and pump your fists!
Rejoice in the tale of how we slayed the beast
[Exit]
