HOOK THE PLANK!!

lyrics

LEGENDS HAVE BEEN TOLD
OF A PIRATE CREW SO BOLD
THEY SAILED INTO THE UNDERWORLD
TO PLUNDER THE DEVIL'S GOLD
SO THE LEGEND CLAIMS
THAT THE WATERS WERE NEVER THE SAME
ALL THE CURSED TREASURE
THEY TOOK WHEREVER
THEY WENT MADE THEM INSANE

LEGENDS HAVE BEEN TOLD
OF THE PIRATE'S SINS OF OLD
THEY SAILED INTO THE UNDERWORLD
TO RECRUIT FORGOTTEN SOULS
SO THE LEGEND STANDS
THAT THE CREW WAS HEADED FOR LAND
WHEN THEY ARRIVE YOU FIGHT OR FLY
THEY SPARE NO WOMAN OR MAN

ACROSS THE OCEANS BLACK WE SAIL
SHROUD OF NIGHT WE WILL PREVAIL
A RESTLESS CREW FROM YEARS AT SEA
TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH THEY WILL FOLLOW ME
SO HOOK THE PLANK AROUND YOUR NECK
SWIM FOR SHORE AND DON'T LOOK BACK
BURN THE SHIPS ON WHICH WE CAME
EITHER VICTORY OR DEATH BE THY NAME

SO IT CAME TO PASS
PIRATES BURNED OUR FLAGS HALF-MAST
THEY RANSACKED RAPED AND PILLAGED
AND IT ALL HAPPENED SO FAST
LEGENDS HAVE BEEN SEEN
OF THE PIRATE CREW SO MEAN
THEY REVELED IN DESTRUCTION
OF THE VILLAGE ONCE SERENE

AND SO THE STORY GOES
WHEN THE RAIN CHANGES TO SNOW
AND THE FULL MOON RISES IN THE SKY
THEIR SHIP BRINGS DEATH IN TOW

ACROSS THE OCEANS RED WE SAIL
BLOODLUSTING WE WILL PREVAIL
A RESTLESS CREW FROM YEARS AT SEA
TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH THEY WILL FOLLOW ME
SO HOOK THE PLANK AROUND YOUR NECK
SWIM FOR SHORE AND DON'T LOOK BACK
BURN THE SHIPS ON WHICH WE CAME
EITHER VICTORY OR DEATH BE THY NAME
