Captain Dan & The Scurvy Crew – Ship 2 Ship lyrics

(Sea Dawg)
Hands to yer halyards and batten down the hatches
Soon we'll be in range to turn that ship to ashes
Like a game of chess but the ocean's the table
I'm all in the wind and bring a spring upon her cable
Tighten yer grip
All hands about ship
Hot chain shot is what we're bout to transmit
From our guns to their mizzenmast fire a blast
Let 'em know they're outclassed and this day they won't

*Sea Dawg
Let our ammunition fly
Light up the sky
Don't stand by
Make the enemy die
We fight ship 2 ship
Equip my clip
Soon all their sailors
Gonna take a dip
*Cap D
The Beats to the starboard
The helms to the larboard
Take are masts forward
She's never bein' harbored
Hard over on the wheel
Prepare to ram
Shards for their keels
Their lives be damned!

(Cap D)
Clear lashings from the guns
Set stages for battle
We're dashing when we're done
Bet cages we'll rattle
Make ready, Aim steady

Bos'n Pipe to quarters
Stakes heavy
Wakes deadly
Rostin wicks on mortars
Crouch if their cannons shook
Scout for abandon crooks
Our with yer graplin hooks
Shout when yer weight is took
Now crawl, overhaul
On the deck where you'll brawl
Don't stall, make em fall
Comin through like a squall


We're going ship to ship, let the musket-balls rip
Our fingertips won't slip from the gat or the hatchet
Face the facts: It's a mother-fucking boarding axe
You've got a galleon, and I'm gonna snatch it
Gonna start some shit, from the stern to the bowsprit
Cos that's how we roll in her majesty's service
Tapping ship's biscuits to shake out the rat shit
I've got stabbing fever and you know yer gonna catch it
I'll end your career as a buccaneer
You live in fear to be sheared by the spears of my
Clear as the tears you've been shedding for years
Get in the beers cos we're here and our victory's near
