Pirate song

My boat's by the tower, and my bark's on the bay,
and both must be gone at the dawn of the day.
The moon's in her shroud, and to light thee afar
 On the deck of the daring's a lovelighted star.

Refrein

So wake, lady wake, I am waiting tor thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting tor thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,

So torgive me my rough mood unaccustomed to sue;
I woo not, perhaps, as your landlubbers do.
My voice is attu ned to the sou nd of the gun
That startles the deep when the combat's begun.

Refrein

The Frenchman and Don will flee trom our path,
and the Englishmen cower below at our wrath,
And our sails shall be gilt in the gold of the day,
And the sea robins sing as we roll on our way.

Refrein

A hundred shall serve - the best of the brave,
And the chief of a thousand shall kneel as slave,
And thou shalt reign queen, and thy empire shalilast
Till the black flag by inches, is torn trom the mast.

Refrein
