Falconer – Royal Galley lyrics

By the rail he stands
On black waves he rides
The tomorrow belongs to him
And the queen by his side
Do not fear the storm
Master the oaken galley
And be brave at heart
For your king and country

Turn the prow towards the storm
For it's too late to turn back

Royal galley under the sky
Ooooh ooooh
Breaking waves oh so high
Ooooh ooooh

The ship is swaying
Great white sails are torn
Work harder faithful crew
Or you'll do nothing more
The firm hand of doom
Makes the ship heal
Rocking out of control
Bending up it's keel
The imposing galley twists and turns
Sruggling in the wild waves

Royal galley sailing no more
Ooooh ooooh
The ship is doomed forevermore
Ooooh ooooh

Panic and agony hangs in the cold air
As were heading towards our destiny
The figurehead is going down towards the black end
Never to be seen again crossing the seaven seas
Clashing waves are our tragic requiem
Since the maidenvoyage was the last to be

The golden flagship of the fleet
Is heading for it's deepest grave

Royal galley lost at sea
Ooooh ooooh
Down in the deep resting in peace
Ooooh ooooh
