Bilge Pumps – Fire Maringo lyrics

Lift him up and carry him along
Fire Maringo, fire him away
Put him down where he belongs
Fire Maringo, fire him away!

The deck is awash with blood so red
Pooled up all around the dead

The enemy's ship is alive with fire
There's no plunder in that funeral pyre

Those navy dogs they had no fear
That King's Man O' War, she cost us dear

The captain lays wrapped in his shroud
With ten men killed, he did us proud

Send him overboard and let him lay
Wrapped up in chains so there he'll stay

The ocean floor is filled with bones
Pirates who never will see home

Let's fill her sails and make her go
There's more ships afloat for us to lay low
