Running Wild – Calico Jack lyrics

Up with the roger, the vessel is close
Cannons are loaded the weapons prepared
Set up more sails the distance grows
They try to escape but we shan't care
Calico Jack - Listen and hear my command
Calico Jack - I lead you to victory
Calico Jack - We shall win in the end
Calico Jack - You may believe what I foresee
Down with the roger, the vessel's too far
It's time for the red flag, no remorse
Anne and Mary, more rum in my jar
I need more refreshment before we set course
Changing the course now, we must get in touch
Triple afford, he must not escape
Our breath in their neck they feel out grudge
We have to hurry to get them in scrape
Acrid smell of smoke in the air
White flags rising mainmast breaks
Earth go deaf by my brother's blare
Upper deck is taken over
All of a sudden a yelling cry
Port turn open, what a mess
Soldiers get out'n'comrades dies
Desperate fights we're on the loose
The judge:
John Rackham
You are charged with murder and piracy of the high seas
In the name of her Majesty you will be taken from this court
And hung, drawn and quartered
What are your last words, accused?
Calico Jack:
My last words? Ha, Ha!!
Who do you think you are?!
What right have you to judge over my destiny?!
Take your pompous words and stick'em where the sun don't shine
I swear we meet again
