The King and his Men
Stole the Queen from her bed
And bound her in her bones
The Seas be ours and by the Powers
Where we will, we'll roam

Yo, Ho, all hands
Hoist The Colours high
Heave, Ho, Thieves and Beggers
Never shall we Die!

Yo, Ho, all together
Hoist The Colours high
Heave, Ho, Thieves and Beggars
Never shall we Die!

Some men have died
And some are alive
Others sail on the sea
With keys to the cage
And the Devil to pay
We lay to Fiddler's Green!

The bell has been raised
From it's watery grave
Hear it's sepruchal tone
A call to all
Pay head the squall
Turn your sail towards home!

Yo, Ho, all together
Hoist The Colours high
Heave, Ho, Thieves and Beggars
Never shall we Die!
