|My best ship... so far.|
The Pirate BeautyThe Pirate BeautyThe Pirate Beauty by CapnFlynn
My one true love's a sailor
He left to sail the sea
But he swore as we stood on the sandy shore
He'd return and marry me
Five long years I waited
For my lover to return
But though I repined, a-sobbing and sighing
In vain for him I burned
"O know you aught of my truelove?
O have you any word?
O has he drowned in the thund'ring sound?
O tell me, have you heard?"
"O his ship it was boarded by pirates,
The Pirate Beauty by name
The most murderous boat that e'er did float
On the blue of the sounding main"
O alas for my love is a pirate,
Alas and alack I say!
For he'd better been drowned in the foamy sound
Than come to this awful day!
She's put on her boots of leather
And she's buckled her shining sword
She's gone to the sea her truelove to free
From the terrible pirate horde
She said to the pirate captain,
"Now give me back my dear!"
But he laughed at the sound and turned around
Her love was the buccaneer!
"O why did you ever come here
And follow me to the sea?
